Duo learn EL fate

Fiorentina and Lazio should be relatively happy following the group stage draw for this season’s Europa League.

The Viola, who lost 1-0 to Grasshopper last night but still progressed on the away goals rule, have been placed into Group E.

Vincenzo Montella’s side will face Ukrainian outfit Dnipro, Portugal’s Pacos Ferreira and Romanian team Pandurri.

Lazio, last year’s Coppa Italia winners, will play Turkey’s Trabzonspor, Legia of Poland and Cypriots Apollon in Group J.

Udinese were not in today’s draw following their aggregate loss against Slovan Liberec in the August preliminaries.
