Europa League Group Stage Draw
Good Draws for English Sides
In this packed season, getting draws which do not involve much long-distance travelling will have been key. Arsenal will likely be the happiest in that respect having been drawn with Rapid Vienna, Molde and Dundalk.
Spurs, who have already been to Eastern Europe twice in their qualifying campaign, will head back there when they take on Ludogorets, but face two relatively shorter trips when they go to LASK and Royal Antwerp.
Leicester City have the most travelling to do of the English contingent. They go to Ukraine to face Zorya Luhansk and Greece to play AEK Athens. Braga are also in their group.
Other Notable Teams
Scottish champions Celtic are joined in Group H by AC Milan, who only qualified for the group stages on Thursday after a mammoth penalty shoot-out against Rio Ave. Their Scottish counterparts, Rangers, have been drawn in Group D with Benfica, Standard Liege and Lech Poznan.
Champions League semi-finalists from 2017/18 Roma are in Group A with Young Boys, Cluj and CSKA Sofia, fellow Italians Napoli are in Group F and Bundesliga side Hoffenheim are in Group L.
