Italian giants Milan are among the other notable
sides to be taking part in Europe’s second tier club
competition and they have been paired with Austria
Wien, Rijeka and AEK.
Elsewhere, the likes of Villarreal, Athletic Bilbao and
Lazio will be going in search of continental glory.
Zenit St Petersburg, the 2008 winners, will also be
hoping to go deep into the competition, with former
Manchester City and Inter boss Roberto Mancini now at
the helm of the ambitious Russian side.
They will all be hoping to follow in the footsteps of
Manchester United, who landed the trophy in 2016-17
to end the season in style under Jose Mourinho and
book a return ticket to the Champions League.
