European League Group Stage Draw: Tottenham Hotspur’s Best and Worst Groups

Tottenham Hotspur It advanced through three stages of the competition that included one-off win in Bulgaria and North Macedonia, and officially qualified for the 2020 Europa League group stages on Thursday with a resounding 7-2 win over Israeli club Maccabi Haifa.

The Europa League group draw will take place tomorrow at 7:00 AM EST, at noon in the UK, which does not give much time for an in-depth analysis. Nevertheless, it is worth taking a look at the Europa League stadium to learn about the odds and who might face Tottenham in the end.

First, some ground rules. Tottenham are currently the second best-rated team in the competition (14th), slightly behind Arsenal (11th place, and yes, the fact that Tottenham are still one step ahead of Arsenal in UEFA Club Transactions Evidence of a defective system). Both are in Pot 1, while two are Premier League teammates Leicester It starts in pot 2.

Teams will be divided into 12 groups of four, with one team from each bet. Just like in an Champions LeagueThe club cannot be included in a group with a team from their own confederation, or with two teams from the same association, but all bets are stopped once you pass the first round of the knockout stages.

Let’s take a look at the pots, along with their club labs numbers.

So what does this mean for potential Tottenham Hotspur opponents in the group stage? lets take alook.

The worst case scenario

Real society Milan Italian club • Small

The worst thing that can happen in a tie full of bad teams often, but not entirely, is for a handful of clubs to be pulled from good leagues. Real Sociedad are a midfield team in La Liga, but they’re still a team in La Liga that includes Adnan Januzaj (remember him?), Former Tottenham striker Willian Jose’s goal, and some older people named David Silva.

Milan were so bad this season and had to come back from behind late to beat Rio Ave in penalties only to qualify for this tournament, but come on, Milan is still – an efficient and high-quality Italian club.

Meanwhile, Lille has players like Zaki Celik, Renato Sanchez, Boubacari Sommari and Burke Yilmaz. We also robbed their assistant coaches when Jose Mourinho was appointed, and we tried to rob our football manager, Luis Campos. I imagine Lil will probably kick us in the teeth and they are definitely better than the many jokes they have in Pot 4.

Tottenham still has to come out of that group but it sure won’t be as easy as it might otherwise be. You can also substitute Milan for Hoffenheim in Pot 2, and Night with Ness in Pot 3 and an equally challenging combination.

Best case scenario

Pretty much everything else, but let’s go with: PAOK • Maccabi Tel Aviv • Omonia

The good news for Tottenham is that most teams, at least at this point in the competition, are not very good. This means there is a very good chance that Tottenham will draw a group from which it will be very easy to escape, even if they play a round side. And even if they happen to paint a team with a frightening fanbase (like Red Star Belgrade, last year’s Champions League opponents), the fact that these matches will be played behind closed doors means that even the first leg matches won’t be scary. They can also be.

PAOK will only be fun so we can revive glory and glory in the 2012 European League. Tel Aviv is currently hanging out near the bottom of the Israeli league table. Omonia is a team from the Cypriot league with a club factor higher than only CSKA Sofia, and I prefer not to return to Bulgaria.

The most pleasant scenario

Young Boys • Rangers • Dundalk

I love the European League because it gives us a chance to play against clubs we don’t usually care about. Young Boys gave bouts of play for Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League match in 2011. They have strong European origins and it is usually fun to play against Swiss League teams. Rangers trailing far behind Celtic are still in SPL, but Steven Gerrard turns it on, and who wouldn’t want to kick that guy out again, just for old time? Dundalk is an Irish club that stands for the definition of “happy to be here.”

If you like some remote places and are not sensitive about the distance to travel, the Armenian club Qarabag is fun from pot 2, Hapoel Beer Sheva has the word “beer” in their name, and who is ready for a trip to Turkey to play Sivasspor?
