Europa League Group Stage Draw: Liverpool, Tottenham & Newcastle United Avoid Big Guns

Tottenham, Liverpool and Newcastle dodge the bigger names.

Tottenham will line-up in Group J alongside Greek side Panathanaikos, Italian club Lazio and Maribor of Slovenia.

The north London club, who finished 4th in the Premier League last season, but agonisingly missed out on a place in the Champions League after Chelsea won the competition, will be confident of progressing to the latter stages of the competition.

Meanwhile, Liverpool will face Italian side Udinese and Swiss club Young Boys. Big-spending Russian club Anzhi, where former Barcelona ace Samuel Eto’o now plies his trade, make-up the teams in Group A.

Newcastle United will come up against French side Bordeaux, Club Brugge of Belgium and Portugese outsiders Maritimo in Group D.

This season’s competition also sees the likes of Italian giants Inter Milan, French club Lyon and last season’s Europa League Champions Athletico Madrid competing in the group stages.
