Europa League draw: full match schedule now confirmed
UEFA have announced the full fixtures calendar complete with definitive dates for the 2022/23 Europa League.
A few hours after the Europa League pairings were known, UEFA announced the final match schedule, with their corresponding crosses and schedules. Betis kick off their European campaign on 8 September at home against HJK Helsinki. Real Sociedad have not been so lucky, they start off by meeting Manchester United at Old Trafford on the same day.
Check the final schedule of the Europa League:
Betis and Real Sociedad were unlucky to have drawn the two teams which everyone wanted to avoid in Pot 1 - the Andalusians landed in the same group as Jose Mourinho’s Roma, and the Basques face Manchester United - who they met in the Champions League several years ago. However, the rest of the draw has been benevolent for the Spaniards. Sheriff Tiraspol (the surprise package in the Champions League last season) and Omonoia, complete Real Sociedad’s group. Ludogorest and Hjk, Betis’ other rivals.
Arsenal, another of big teams in this edition, fell into Group A with the PSV while Lazio landed in Group F with Feyernoord.
