Arsenal should win EL and bring more points for England.
Everton must make the semis.
Zenit will eventually loose with some scrubs.
I don't know what to say about AC Milan to be honest.
Lazio & Lyon can be a surprise and make the final.
I don't know much about Marseille.
Steaua won't get in the last 32. They have a decent squad with a few very talented players but their management is awful.

Let's see how the groups will be.

Hope we avoid Everton and Nice

Any EL experts @Firenze @Glory know the regulations of R32/R16? Do pots not matter after groups?

Need to ban individual threads for this tournament IMO. What's next? individual threads for the Carabao Cup? smh. Keep it in the EL general thread. Can't even pronounce 75% of the names in this draw. rofl

Arsenal should be favorite, however I'm expecting some strong teams to be in this via CL exit and one of them will probably end up taking it all, if they want it.

I assume when United finishes 3rd they get seeded to the R16?

Much as I'd love to ruin you. We're going all the way in CL lad. Hopefully you can get into the CL sometime in the next few seasons so we can humble you, if the likes of Rijeka don't do so first.

UEFA should just stop messing around and display 2 champions League, one for the let's say top 10 leagues, and a second one for all other federations. Includes a league relegation system as well.

Looking at these 12 groups, i realize of much of an unfair bullshit competition Europa League is and always was. You have charity tournaments in the summer that are more entertaining than this, and at least for a good cause.

Tough group for Milan, without injuries in their squad they might be able to finish 1st.

Atalanta will reach round of 128, i've watched Everton recently: unimpressive at best.

This should be a 32 team competition. Remove the bottom 16 teams and it's a pretty decent competition.
