Dynamo Kyiv (UKR)
Shamrock Rovers (IRE)
FK Austria Wien(AUT)
Group C will be oone of the closest races this season in Europa League. The draw was kind to all four clubs and they all have an equal chance to advance. All four clubs were members of last seasons competition but only two had good runs.
Shamrock Rovers (IRE) last season came late to Europa after a third place finish in the Champions League. They would make it all the way to the second knockout round where they lost to German side Schalke 04 5-3. This club is looking for another big run in Europe and their improvement has shown. Since Mike Korrigan joined the coaching staff their coefficient jumped from a 0.250 in the 2013/14 season to a 21.475. They are currently in 95th in European Rankings.
Next up is Dynamo Kyiv (UKR). Last season they made it to Group F where they would miss advancing to the next round by two points. In the 2013/14 version of this competition they finished as runner up losing to German club Borussia Dortmund.
From Portugal is Braga. Along with Shamrock they were the only club in the group to advance past any European Group stage in the past year. In last seasons run they were second place in Group K and failed to beat Russian club CSKA Moscow in the First Knockout Round.
Finally Austrian's FK Austrian Wein join the party. They join after advancing against F.C. Copenhagen 2-1. Last season the Veilchen were knocked out by FC Dinamo 1948 Bucharest in the third qualifying round thus failing to make the group stage.
