The 2019–20 UEFA Europa League group stage began on 19 September and will end on 12 December 2019.[1] A total of 48 teams compete in the group stage to decide 24 of the 32 places in the knockout phase of the 2019–20 UEFA Europa League.[2]

Draw[edit]

The draw for the group stage was held on 30 August 2019, 13:00 CEST, at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.[3]

The 48 teams were drawn into twelve groups of four, with the restriction that teams from the same association could not be drawn against each other. For the draw, the teams were seeded into four pots based on their 2019 UEFA club coefficients.

On 17 July 2014, the UEFA emergency panel ruled that Ukrainian and Russian clubs would not be drawn against each other "until further notice" due to the political unrest between the countries.[4]

Moreover, for associations with two or more teams, teams were paired in order to split them into two sets of six groups (A–F, G–L) for maximum television coverage. The following pairings were announced by UEFA after the group stage teams were confirmed:[5]

  • Spain: Sevilla and Espanyol
  • England: Arsenal and Manchester United
  • Italy: Roma and Lazio
  • Germany: Borussia Mönchengladbach and Eintracht Frankfurt
  • France: Saint-Étienne and Rennes
  • Russia: CSKA Moscow and Krasnodar
  • Portugal: Porto and Sporting CP; Braga and Vitória de Guimarães
  • Ukraine: Dynamo Kyiv and Oleksandriya
  • Belgium: KAA Gent and Standard Liège
  • Turkey: Beşiktaş and Trabzonspor
  • Netherlands: PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord
  • Austria: LASK and Wolfsberger AC
  • Switzerland: Basel and Young Boys
  • Scotland: Celtic and Rangers

On each matchday, one set of six groups play their matches at 18:55 CET/CEST, while the other set of six groups play their matches at 21:00 CET/CEST, with the two sets of groups alternating between each matchday. The fixtures were decided after the draw, using a computer draw not shown to public, with the following match sequence (Regulations Article 15.02):[2]

Note: Positions for scheduling do not use the seeding pots, e.g. Team 1 is not necessarily the team from Pot 1 in the draw.

Matchday Date Matches
Matchday 1 19 September 2019 2 v 3, 4 v 1
Matchday 2 3 October 2019 1 v 2, 3 v 4

Matchday 5 28 November 2019 3 v 2, 1 v 4
Matchday 6 12 December 2019 2 v 1, 4 v 3

There were scheduling restrictions: for example, teams from the same city (e.g. Lazio and Roma) in general were not scheduled to play at home on the same matchday (to avoid them playing at home on the same day, due to logistics and crowd control), and teams from "winter countries" (e.g. Russia) were not scheduled to play at home on the last matchday (due to cold weather).

Teams[edit]

Format[edit]

In each group, teams play against each other home-and-away in a round-robin format. The group winners and runners-up advance to the round of 32, where they are joined by the eight third-placed teams of the Champions League group stage.

Tiebreakers[edit]

Teams are ranked according to points (3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 points for a loss), and if tied on points, the following tiebreaking criteria are applied, in the order given, to determine the rankings (Regulations Articles 16.01):[2]

  1. Points in head-to-head matches among tied teams;
  2. Goal difference in head-to-head matches among tied teams;
  3. Goals scored in head-to-head matches among tied teams;
  4. Away goals scored in head-to-head matches among tied teams;
  5. If more than two teams are tied, and after applying all head-to-head criteria above, a subset of teams are still tied, all head-to-head criteria above are reapplied exclusively to this subset of teams;
  6. Goal difference in all group matches;
  7. Goals scored in all group matches;
  8. Away goals scored in all group matches;
  9. Wins in all group matches;
  10. Away wins in all group matches;
  11. Disciplinary points (red card = 3 points, yellow card = 1 point, expulsion for two yellow cards in one match = 3 points);
  12. UEFA club coefficient.

Groups[edit]

The matchdays are 19 September, 3 October, 24 October, 7 November, 28 November, and 12 December 2019.[1] The scheduled kickoff times are 18:55 and 21:00 CET/CEST, with possible exceptions at 16:50 CET/CEST due to geographical reasons.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ CEST (UTC+2) for dates up to 26 October 2019 (matchdays 1–3), and CET (UTC+1) for dates thereafter (matchdays 4–6).
  2. ^ a b c Qarabağ play their home matches at Tofiq Bahramov Republican Stadium, Baku, instead of their regular home stadium Azersun Arena, Baku.
  3. ^ a b c F91 Dudelange play their home matches at Stade Josy Barthel, Luxembourg City, instead of their regular home stadium Stade Jos Nosbaum, Dudelange.
  4. ^ a b c Lugano play their home matches at Kybunpark, St. Gallen, instead of their regular home stadium Cornaredo Stadium, Lugano, as it did not meet UEFA requirements.[17]
  5. ^ a b c LASK play their home matches at Linzer Stadion, Linz, instead of their regular home stadium Waldstadion, Pasching.
  6. ^ a b c Vitória de Guimarães' home matches were initially scheduled on Wednesdays at 16:50 CET/CEST, pending confirmation, due to security concerns related to scheduling conflicts with Braga's home matches. On 4 September 2019, the Vitória de Guimarães v Eintracht Frankfurt match was rescheduled back to 3 October 2019, 21:00 CEST, after a "risk reassessment by the security forces".[50] On 11 September 2019, the Vitória de Guimarães v Arsenal match was refused rescheduling to 7 November 2019, 18:55 CET, in order to avoid a scheduling conflict with the Braga v Beşiktaş match.[51]
  7. ^ a b c Oleksandriya play their home matches at Arena Lviv, Lviv, instead of their regular home stadium CSC Nika Stadium, Oleksandriia, as it did not meet UEFA requirements.[76]
  8. ^ a b c Wolfsberger AC play their home matches at Liebenauer Stadium, Graz, instead of their regular home stadium Lavanttal-Arena, Wolfsberg.
  9. ^ a b Officially, the match was played behind closed doors due to punishment by UEFA, but Slovan Bratislava used the UEFA regulation, which allows such matches to be visited by children under 14 years.
  10. ^ a b Partizan was supposed to play two matches behind closed doors, for the racist behaviour of its supporters against Turkish club Yeni Malatyaspor at the third qualifying round.[100] However, new regulations allowed little fans as exception for their Europa League match opener against AZ.[101] Apparently the sanction was not imposed either in the match against Manchester United.
  11. ^ a b c AZ play their home matches at Cars Jeans Stadion, The Hague, instead of their regular home stadium AFAS Stadion, Alkmaar due to the latter's roof collapse.[104]
