Rangers nightmare, Celtic tough group, Man Utd vs Young Boys, Arsenal boost – Europa League draw simulated

The Europa League draw takes place later today as fans finally learn who their teams will be competing against in the group stage.

Arsenal , Manchester United and Wolves will represent the Premier League while Scottish Premiership giants Celtic and Rangers are also in the hat.

The 48 teams left in the competition are split into 12 groups of four.

The top two from each group will progress to the knockout stages of the competition.

Starsport ran a draft draw using a Europa League simulator after Thursday evening’s final round of qualification matches.

Arsenal, who lost to Chelsea in last season’s final, will be hoping our simulation proves true to real life.

Unai Emery’s men were given a spot in Group I along with Braga, Partizan Belgrade and Wolfsberger AC.

Manchester United came out in Group F with Young Boys, Basaksehir and Guimaraes for company.

Wolves face a tricky set of fixtures after the simulator placed them in Group E with Lazio and Frankfurt. Ferencvaros round off the foursome.

It’s a far tricker prospect for the Scottish teams, however.

Rangers were placed in Group K by the simulator along with Roma, Gent and Espanyol.

While Celtic face games against Sevilla, Saint-Etienne and Trabzonspor in Group C.

The Europa League draw takes place from 12pm BST at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.
