The UEFA Cup Draw took place early on Tuesday and there were some very good match-ups drawn, and one extremely tough group that has to merit the ‘Group of Death’ label.
Here is the draw:
- GROUP A: Schalke 04, Paris St. Germain, Manchester City, Racing Santander, FC Twente
- GROUP B: Benfica, Olympiakos, Galatasaray, Hertha Berlin, FC Metalist Kharkiv
- GROUP C: Sevilla, VFB Stuttgart, Sampdoria, Partizan Belgrade, Standard Liege
- GROUP D: Tottenham Hotspur, Spartak Moscow, Udinese, Dinamo Zagreb, NEC Nijmegen
- GROUP E: AC Milan, Heerenveen, SC Braga, Portsmouth, VFL Wolfsburg
- GROUP F: Hamburg, Ajax, Slavia Prague, Aston Villa, MSK Zilina
- GROUP G: Valencia, Club Brugge, Rosenborg, FC Copenhagen, Saint-Etienne
- GROUP H: CSKA Moscow, Deportivo La Coruna, Feyenoord, AS Nancy Lorraine, Lech Poznan.
As you can see, Group C is loaded, as is Group A. Group F, with Hamburg, Aston Villa and Ajax, is also going to be a good one to follow.
