The draw will be done at 1 p.m. on Friday; the Serbian football club is Europa League’s third draw pot
Partizan Belgrade last night qualified to the group stage of UEFA’s Europa League, after drawing 1-1 away with Norway’s Molde – the aggregate result was 3-2, as the Serbian club had won the first leg 2-1.
It’s known how much money the black-and-whites will earn from this success, which will represent a significant financial injection for the club, but it’s also known that the club will be in the third – out of four – drawing pots today, with a coefficient of 18.000 in UEFA’s rankings.
Partizan fans can expect some very attractive clubs to come to Belgrade, because possible rivals of the team led by coach Savo Milosevic include European greats like Manchester United, Roma, Arsenal, Porto, Celtic, Sevilla – but also Young Boys, whom city rivals Red Star Belgrade eliminated from qualifications for Europe’s most elite competition, the Champions League.
These are the drawing pots for the Europa League group stage:
1st: Sevilla, Arsenal, Porto, Roma, Manchester United, Dinamo Kiev, Beshiktash, Basel, Sporting, CSKA Moscow, Wolfsburg, Lazio
2nd: PSV, Krasnodar, Celtic, Copenhagen, Braga, Borussia Monchengladbach, Young Boys, Astana, Ludogorets, APOEL, Eintracht
