VfL Wolfsburg had a little more luck: Among the opposing clubs in Group I there is no really well-known competitor - Wolfsburg plays against the Belgian club KAA Gent, AS Saint-Étienne from France and FC Olexandrija from the Ukraine.
A new opportunity for Frankfurt?
Last year, Frankfurt had reached the semi-finals of the tournament, but lost on penalties to Chelsea, who later took the title. The Eintracht secured the renewed participation in the Europa League only on Thursday evening in the qualifier against Strasbourg. Borussia Mönchengladbach and VfL Wolfsburg had an automatic start right by finishing fifth and sixth in the Bundesliga.
The Europa League group stage will start on 19 September and will end on Matchday 6 on 12 December. The finale will take place on May 27, 2020 in Gdansk.
