Europa League Preview

The Europa League group stages kick-off on Thursday, with Manchester United, Arsenal, Wolves, Celtic and Rangers all in action.

United kick-off as favourites to lift the trophy and they begin at home to FC Astana in Group L.

Arsenal are in Group F and they face a tricky looking trip to Germany to face Eintracht Frankfurt.

Wolves, who came through qualifying to make it into the main draw, are in Group L and face Portuguese outfit Sporting Braga at Molineux.

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers were handed a tough looking task in Group G and they open up against Feyenoord, whilst Celtic also have a difficult task as they face Rennes in France.

We run through every game including predictions from our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey and BoyleSports’ Lawrence Lyons.
