MANCHESTER UNITED are back in the Europa League – and about to discover their group stage fate.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side are back in this competition for the first time in two seasons and will see it as a potential way back into the Champions League.
With the draw imminent in Monaco, it’s now known who United can – and cannot – face in the group stages.
Who can Man Utd face in the Europa League?
OLE’s men are without Champions League football at Old Trafford this year.
After a disappointing 2018/19, the Red Devils will be looking to break back into the top-four domestically and are set to take this competition seriously.
They lifted the trophy last time they competed back in 2017, beating Ajax 2-0 in the final.
Teams from the same country can’t be drawn in the same group, so United won’t be playing either Arsenal or Wolves (should Nuno’s side make it through qualifying).
The final qualifying ties were held on August 29 and now the pots have been decided for tomorrow’s draw in Monaco.
United are in Pot 1 and can therefore NOT face the following teams in the group stages:
- Dynamo Kiev
- Sporting CP
- CSKA Moscow
All teams in the other pots CAN face United, except for Wolves as sides from the same division can’t play each other in this round.
The following teams could all be visiting Old Trafford in the group stages:
- PSV Eindhoven
- Borussia Monchengladbach
- Young Boys
- Eintracht Franfurt
- St Etienne
- Standard Liege
- Istanbul Basaksehir
- AZ Aalkmaar
- Vitoria de Guimaraes
- LASK Linz
- Slovan Bratislava
What time is the draw?
THIS year’s draw is being held in the lavish surroundings of Monaco in the South of France.
It will take place on Friday, August 30.
Expect bigwigs from some of Europe’s top clubs to be in attendance, as well as stars of the past and present.
Things will get underway at midday BST.
