UEFA Europa League groups drawn.




All 12 groups for the UEFA Europa League were drawn today, with the competition getting fully underway for the 2014/15 season.

With the likes of Manchester United, Inter Milan and Napoli all competing, it is already looking as if it will be a very intriguing year of Europa League football. Other top sides such as Real Sociedad, Tottenham and Everton are all involved meaning there should be plenty of entertaining games in the way of fans in the not too distant future.

France will be represented by Olympique Lyonnais and Guingamp, with the former drawn in a fairly easy group containing Cluj, Hadjuk Split and Slovan Liberac. As for Guingamp, they face a tougher test of progressing after handed a group including PSV, Metalist and Mainz.


The draw in full, from Group A to Group L

Olympqiue Lyonnais boss spoke to Sky Sports after the draw was made today, giving his views on the fixtures to come in this competition, for his team. ”I think that, in all honesty, we have got one of the easier groups considering the wealth of good teams involved in this year’s competition.

We still can’t underestimate our opponents, Cluj are still a good outfit and Hadjuk [Split] should provide a reasonable test too. As for Slovan Liberac, they are definitely the side we need to get maximum points from to progress, but we are very confident of our chances and hopeful we can go far in Europe.”


Wow, that's actually a really easy group! I think you'll finish first
Just caught up, man, this story is going places.
You should top that group easy, good luck :)
Very lucky mate! You should win all the matches!
Very easy draw, you'll definitely finish top with a manager like Juninho in charge :P
Good draw Pomps! Good luck mate. Hull vs Inter as well... never thought i'd see the day.

Let's see how Juninho goes in the Europa league, hopefully you will do well :)
ASR-PSV: Yeah, hopefully so.

brownymcfc: It is pretty easy, or so I would like to think ;)

AAN: That's what I am looking to do :D

Cheers man, hopefully we can keep up this form! :D
What an amazing start to the season. I predict you'll come out of that group with maximum points. I'll say now that you'll be Europa League semi finalists, knocked out by Napoli or Sevilla ;)

Thank you, although, hopefully we can prove you wrong and go all the way to the final ;)
