PSV to face Napoli, Twente face Hannover 96 in Europa League
Friday 31 August 2012
Less than 24 hours after sealing their places in the group stage of the Europa League competition, both PSV and Twente know who they will face in the group round.
Dick Advocaat's PSV Eindhoven drew Napoli, FC Dnipro of Ukraine and Swedish club AIK of Stockholm in their Group F session.
FC Twente, coached by Steve McClaren, will meet German club Hannover 96, Spanish side Levante and Helsingborgs of Sweden in their Group L matches.
Twente midfielder Wout Brama told the Uefa website: 'It absolutely could have been worse... At a draw I always hope for nice opponents and for sides we have not met yet. And that has now happened. The most important thing is that we have a group with opportunities to go through.'
The top two teams in each group progress through to the round of 32.
The first legs involving Dutch clubs take place on September 20. The final of the competition will be held at the Amsterdam Arena on May 15.
