Yesterday was the last round in the qualification leg for the Europe League, and today it was time to draw the groups. At 13.00 today in Monaco the groups were made, and here you can see all the different groups.
– Here are the groups for the Champions League group stage
Club Brugge (BEL)
Rapid Wien (AUT)
Dinamo Minsk (BLR)
Sporting CP (POR)
Lokomotiv Moskva a(RUS)
Sparta Praha (CZE)
Tottenham and Liverpool are the teams which will fight for the pride of England in the Europe League this season and Tottenham ended up in a group with Anderlecht from Belgium, Monaco (from the French Ligue 1) and Qarabag from Azerbaijan. This is not at all an easy group, so to end up among the best two teams here they will have to find hard with Anderlecht and Monaco, both teams capable of playing great football.
Liverpool ended up in a group together with Rubin Kazan from Russia, Bordeaux from France and Sion from Switzerland. This is not at all an easy group either, but they should be able to either win the group or get in second (hopefully).
In general Borussia Dortmund is the team people place their bets on to win the Europe League in 2015-16. They ended up in group C together with Paok from Greece, Krasnodar from Russia and Qäbälä from Azerbaijan. We believe that Krasnodar can be a tough opponent, and maybe Paok as well, but none of these teams will be able to fight with Dortmund for the first place in group C.
Lots of great football to look forward to, so follow us on Facebook and keep coming back for more football news and interesting articles later!
