Europa League group stage draw in full as Arsenal and Manchester United learn opponents – Football.London

Arsenal have learned their group stage opponents for this season’s Europa League, with Mikel Arteta’s side set to face PSV Eindhoven, FK Bodo/Glimt and FC Zurich in Group A, having not competed in European competition last season. Of course, it will feel bitter sweet for the Gunners, having been so close to Champions League qualification last season.

The north London outfit’s Premier League rivals Manchester United will also compete in the group stages of the Europa League, with Erik ten Hag’s side set to rack up more mileage, with trips to Real Sociedad (Spain), Sheriff (Moldova) and Omonoia (Cyprus) added to the schedule.

Hungarian capital Budapest is the location of the final scheduled for next May with both sides undoubtedly targeting to go all the way in order to have an alternative pathway to the Champions League should qualification via the Premier League prove too tall a task.
