Arsenal now knows their opponents for the 2019/20 Europa League competition group stage following the draw by UEFA in Monaco this afternoon.
Over the last two seasons, Arsenal has played in the semi-finals and last seasons final losing 4-1 to Premier League rivals Chelsea.
The Gunners were drawn in Group F alongside German outfit Eintracht Frankfurt, who reached last season’s Europa semi-final before going down on penalties to Chelsea, Belgium side Standard Liege and Portugal’s Vitoria FC. At least the fans will not be facing any outrageously long trips to the other side of Europe.
Group F line-up
The actual fixtures, dates and times will be released within the next couple of hours.
It is a tricky draw but Unai Emery and his men should be able to navigate themselves into the knock out rounds as long as they play to their true ability.
The final will be held in Gdansk, Poland on Wednesday, 27th May, a far better destination than the ridiculous Baku. Fans will not have too many issues getting to the Polish city and Arsenal will be able to take every one of their players in the event they do reach the final.
