Who can Man Utd face in the Europa League, and what time is the draw? – The Sun

THERE's plenty of optimism at Old Trafford as Man Utd prepare their Europa League campaign.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are back in this competition for the first time in two season – and will be eyeing it as a route back into the Champions League.

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.

Both United and Arsenal have been seeded in Pot One of the draw – and Scottish rivals Celtic and Rangers could offer the potential of a tricky Battle of Britain tie.

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 are set for TONIGHT, August 29 – after that, the confirmed pots will be released for tomorrow's draw.

Once they have been decided, SunSport will update the possible combinations.

Currently, confirmed sides alongside United for the Europa League are:

  • Sevilla
  • Getafe
  • Arsenal
  • Roma
  • Dynamo Kiev
  • Besiktas
  • Basel
  • Sporting Lisbon
  • CSKA Moscow
  • Wolfsburg
  • Mönchengladbach
  • Lazio
  • Rennes
  • St-Etienne
  • Olexandriya
  • Standard Liege
  • Besiktas
  • Lugano

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.
