Tough for PSG, Lille spared

UEFA Europa League


Paris Saint-Germain will have to see off two European heavyweights to make the latter stages of the Europa League, but Lille were handed a more comfortable task in Friday's group stage draw.

PSG will come up against former Champions League winners Borussia Dortmund and former UEFA Cup champions Sevilla in a testing Group J in which Ukrainian team Karpaty Lviv are the outsiders.

Rudi Garcia's Lille will have to overcome Sporting Lisbon, Levski Sofia and Belgian outfit Gent to claim one of the top two spots in Group C, synonymous with qualification for the knockout phase.

The pair kick off their respective campaigns on 16 September.
