footy musings from a (relative) newbie

Thought I’d forgotten, didn’t you?

But no. This season, I’ve resolved to give the Europa League its due. With that, here’s the round of 32 draw

FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk (UKR) v Tottenham Hotspur FC (ENG)

Real Betis Balompié (ESP) v FC Rubin Kazan (RUS)

Swansea City AFC (ENG) v SSC Napoli (ITA)

Juventus (ITA) v Trabzonspor AŞ (TUR)

NK Maribor (SVN) v Sevilla FC (ESP)

FC Viktoria Plzeň (CZE) v FC Shakhtar Donetsk (UKR)

FC Chornomorets Odesa (UKR) v Olympique Lyonnais (FRA)

SS Lazio (ITA) v PFC Ludogorets Razgrad (BUL)

Esbjerg fB (DEN) v ACF Fiorentina (ITA)

AFC Ajax (NED) v FC Salzburg (AUT)

Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC (ISR) v FC Basel 1893 (SUI)

FC Porto (POR) v Eintracht Frankfurt (GER)

FC Anji Makhachkala (RUS) v KRC Genk (BEL)

FC Dynamo Kyiv (UKR) v Valencia CF (ESP)

PAOK FC (GRE) v SL Benfica (POR)

FC Slovan Liberec (CZE) v AZ Alkmaar (NED)

Now, admittedly, I don’t know my Maribor from my Makhachkala, but I’m hoping to change all that in the next couple of months. Yup – I’m going to attempt to educate myself about all the unfancied teams making their way through the Europa League. We’ll see how that goes.
