The Europa League draw for the 2020/21 season took place on Friday in Nyon, Switzerland, a day after the UEFA Champions League draw was held.

Among the most exciting groups is Group H, where seven-time champions AC Milan are drawn against Celtic, Lille and Sparta Prague.

The Italian club Napoli also have a tricky draw as they face Real Sociedad, AZ Alkmaar and Rijeka in Group F.

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have a more straight-forward group where they will clash with Rapid Vienna, Norway’s Molde and Ireland’s Dundalk in Group B.

Tottenham, Champions League runners-up two seasons ago, face LASK Linz, Ludogorets Razgrad and Royal Antwerp in Group J.

Leicester City, the other Premier League side among the 48 teams, will face Braga, AEK Athens and Ukrainian side Zorya Luhansk in Group G.

Italian club AS Roma will meet Young Boys Bern, Cluj and CSKA Sofia in Group A.

In the last season, Sevilla were crowned Europa League champions for a record-extending sixth time in August after a thrilling 3-2 victory over Inter Milan in Cologne.
