The Europa League 2020/21 is underway, following the group stage draw: now we know who each team will be taking on in order to reach next year's knockout stages.

The first round of group stage games will take place on Thursday, October 22, with the fixtures being released later today.

Arsenal will be relatively pleased with how their campaign begins, with trips to Austria to face Rapid Vienna, Norway to play Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's old side Molde, and Ireland to take on Dundalk.

Similarly, Spurs will be pleased that their toughest test will come against Bulgarian side Ludogerets. Leicester, meanwhile, must take on Portuguese side Braga and Greek AEK, Celtic will have to deal with AC Milan despite being seeded in Pot 1, and Rangers must deal with Benfica and Standard Liege.

Every game this season will be shown exclusively on BT Sport – and if you don't have a BT Sport subscription, you can get an online monthly pass for £25 here.

This season's final will take place in Gdansk, Poland on Wednesday, May 26, 2021. It should have been the venue for last season's final, before the coronavirus pandemic meant the competition resumed as a straight knockout tournament in Germany in August.
