Arsenal and Manchester United are among the top seeds for Friday’s Europa League group stage draw, which takes place at midday UK time, 7 a.m. ET.
The two teams qualified for the competition after finishing 5th and 6th in the Premier League last season, and are joined in the top pot of seeds by Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma as Europa Conference League winners. Roma beat Feyenoord 1-0 through a Nicolo Zaniolo goal to become the first-ever winners of the competition.
The 32 teams will be drawn into eight groups of four teams, one club from a pot in each group, and no two teams from one country can be in the same group.
Next year’s final will be held in the Fortuna Arena, in Prague, Czech Republic, with the winners earning a place in the 2023-24 Champions League group stage.
