Europa League second favourites in pot 3

The 48 clubs in today’s Europa League draw have been divided into four pots based on UEFA coefficients. As explained in yesterday’s article, this can lead to misclassifications and potential groups of death. In this case, a group containing Napoli, Wolfsburg, Everton and Dynamo Moscow is possible with only two going through.

Using the Euro Club Index to order the 48 Europa League qualifiers should provide a more accurate picture of the strengths of the European clubs because it takes account of every match they have played rather than only those in European competition. Everton are ranked second amongst those 48 in 16th position, with only Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur (14th) ahead of them, but the draw procedure has placed the Merseyside club in pot 3.
