Europa League Draw: Juventus To Face Manchester City, Atletico Madrid Draw Bayer Leverkusen

The 2010-11 UEFA Europa League group stage is now set after the draw took place in Monaco on Friday and it proposes some interesting match-ups and intriguing possibilities.

The trophy holders Atletico Madrid have been dealt a tough hand in Group B as they will face-off against Bayer Leverkusen, Rosenborg, and Aris.

Group A has some rather interesting ties to offer with Juventus, Manchester City, Red Bull Salzburg, and Lech Poznan.

Meanwhile, Villarreal in Group D will be relatively pleased to battle against Club Brugge, Dinano Zagreb, and PAOK.

The likely group of death would seem to be Group J with Sevilla, Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund and Karpaty Lviv.

Last year's semi-finalists Liverpool also have an England- Italy duel versus Napoli. Steaua Bucharest and Utrecht round out Group E.

Dutch giants PSV will take on Sampdoria, Metalist Kharkiv, and Debrecen while Besiktas's new signing Ricardo Quaresma will visit his old stomping ground versus Porto.

The story is too old to be commented.

Yes, Napoli are tough, but they lost against Fiorentina in CL last year, but won`t loose against an Italian team this time.
