The Europa League draw has taken place in Istanbul.
The draw for the group stage of the Europa League has delivered its verdict! Monaco, Rennes and Nantes, the three French clubs qualified for this edition, now know their opponents.
Monaco and Rennes have no complaints
Lost in C3 after failing in the third preliminary round of the Champions League, Monaco inherited a very affordable group. No Manchester United, no Arsenal, the princely club will go to Eastern Europe three times to challenge Red Star Belgrade, Ferencvaros and Trabzonspor. The champions of Serbia, Hungary and Turkey should, a priori, be within the reach of the Philippe Clement band, who should not however take this group H lightly.
Three years after its last participation in the Europa League, Rennes finds itself in a fairly similar position. The Breton formation has also seen the best stables on the board and will also go to the east of the continent to challenge Dynamo kyiv, who have played very little due to the situation in Ukraine, Fenerbahe, the biggest piece of Pool B and the modest Cypriot team of AEK Larnaca. A homogeneous but affordable group for the men of Bruno Genesio.
The composition of the groups:
Group A: Arsenal, PSV, Bodo/Glimt, FC Zurich
Group B: Dynamo Kyiv, REINDEER, Fenerbahe, AEK Larnaca
Group C: AS Roma, Ludogorets, Betis, HJK
Group D: Braga, Malm, Union Berlin, Union Saint-Gilloise
Group E: Manchester United, Real Sociedad, Sheriff Tiraspol, Omonia
Group F: Lazio, Feyenoord, Midtjylland, Sturm Graz
Group G: Olympiacos, Qarabag, Freiburg, NANTES
Group H:Red Star of Belgrade, MONACO, Ferencvaros, Trabzonspor
