Lille has much to do!

This Friday afternoon, UEFA conducted the draw for the group phase of the Europa League, successor to the defunct UEFA Cup. Lille and Toulouse, the two French teams still involved inherit groups more or less accessible. For dogs, it will be hard, with Valencia and Genoa in the program, knowing that only the first two group qualify for the next round. The Haute-Garonne them will get rid of Partizan Belgrade, FC Bruges and Shakhtar Donetsk, eliminated early from the Champions League.

Group A

Pour l'Ajax Amsterdam, cela sent bon... The Dutch seem to have the means to extricate himself, even if the duel with the RCS Anderlecht feel good major oppositions of the past, between two clubs who are always after European glory. Note however Dinamo Zagreb, while Timisoara will no doubt difficult to truly exist.

Group B

The Lille Olympique Sporting Club could expect better. If the dogs will fight hard to win their qualification for the next round, at least they can console themselves by confronting the Valencia, which has kept its stars during the offseason (Mata, Silva, Villa), and Genoa, revelation Serie A last season. Slavia Prague complete the group.

Group C

A priori, SV Hamburg and Glasgow Celtic depart favorites. Easy winners of En Avant Guingamp in turn dam, the Germans probably compete for the top spot in the Scottish group, donated from the Champions League after Arsenal faced. Rapid Vienna and Hapoel Tel Aviv dearly sell their skin.

Group D

An open group ... In fact, difficult to identify a favorite between Sporting Lisbon, eliminated from the Champions League with Fiorentina, and Heerenveen Hertha Berlin. Only two folding seats allow clubs to go upstairs and Ventspils could well arise in the referee's points race.

Group E

For the Roma, it will not not as easy as it seems. Men Luciano Spalletti can not afford to make concessions, for FC Basel, Fulham, or even CSKA Sofia have beautiful features.

Villarreal and Lazio now know what to expect. Spaniards and Italians go favorite group G, but keep the Red Bull of Mark Janko, one of the three best strikers in Europe 2008-2009.

Group H

Sans doute la poule la moins glamour de cette phase de la Ligue Europa. Meanwhile, FC Twente, who lost Mark Arnautovic, left for Inter Milan, will have his face always tough to Steaua Bucharest. Fenerbahçe Istanbul and public light should also give trouble to their opponents.

Group I

Two beautiful courses have made an appointment. The Benfica and Everton develops most often a game licked and spectacular should offer viewers the Estadio Da Luz Goodison Park and many beautiful posters.

Group J

Half fig, half grape ... Le Toulouse Football Club est malheureusement tombé sur le tenant de la défunte Coupe de l'UEFA, éliminé prématurément en Ligue des Champions, et devra se montrer à la hauteur de l'événement. On the other side, Partizan Belgrade and FC Bruges are within the reach of Andre-Pierre Gignac et al.

A boulevard for PSV Eindhoven? If the Batavian club plays in which he knows nothing should prevent him from grabbing the top spot in Pool K. But football has never been an exact science, and Copenhagen, Sparta Prague and Cluj will be there to prove ...

Group L

A real surprise guest this round of the Europa League, the Portuguese CD Nacional, which have fallen Aston Villa in the previous round, will have the opportunity to prove to everyone that their presence at this stage of the competition is not "accidental." And against Werder Bremen and Athletic Bilbao, we should not be missed. The Austria Vienna complete the quartet.
