BT Sport have used data to predict the 2019/20 Europa League season


The draw for the 2019/20 Europa League group stages was carried out on Friday afternoon.

Five British clubs discovered which European teams they’ll be facing over the next few months.

Manchester United face some difficult trips in a group containing Astana, Partizan Belgrade and AZ Alkmaar, while Arsenal take on Eintracht Frankfurt Standard Liege and Vitória de Guimarães.

Wolves face Besiktas, Braga and Slovan Bratislava; Celtic will play Lazio, Rennes and Cluj, while Rangers are in Group G along with Porto, Young Boys and Feyenoord.

United remain the pre-tournament favourites, although their odds have drifted slightly following the draw.

Arsenal are second favourites, followed by Sevilla, Wolves and AS Roma.

But what does BT Sport’s Supercomputer think will happen during this season’s Europa League?

They’ve used stats courtesy of Google Cloud, Opta and Squawka and produced a script of the current season - which you may have heard about previously - including the Europa League.
