Let the anticipation build as we delve into the exciting details of what awaits us in this upcoming season.
The UEFA Europa League, an exhilarating football competition organized by the Union of European Associations (UEFA), takes center stage as the second tier of European club football. Positioned above the UEFA Europa Conference League and beneath the prestigious UEFA Champions League, it offers an exciting platform for eligible clubs across Europe. As we eagerly anticipate the upcoming 2023-24 season, it’s worth noting that this will be the 53rd edition since its inception. Moreover, this particular season commemorates the 15th anniversary since the tournament was rebranded from the UEFA Cup to its current name, the UEFA Europa League.
It’s worth mentioning that this will be the final season featuring the current format of 32 teams competing in the group stage. UEFA has announced plans to introduce an expanded format for the subsequent edition. As a result of the format change, clubs participating in the Champions’ League group stage under the Swiss format are no longer eligible for transfer to the UEFA Europa League. Additionally, starting from this edition, the winning team will not have the opportunity to defend their title in the following year.

LASK vs. Liverpool
The UEFA Europa League group stage will commence on September 21, 2023, with Liverpool playing against LASK in their first match of the season at Raiffeisen Arena. Liverpool has been placed in Group E, along with French team Toulouse, Belgian club Union Saint-Gilloise, and Austrian club LASK. This is Liverpool’s fifth participation in the Europa League competition, having debuted in 2015-2016, and they have already made it to the semifinals. In the 2022-2023 Premier League season, Jurgen Klopp’s team finished fifth, following their disappointing end to the campaign after finishing as runners-up in the previous season. They played in the Champions League last season but were eliminated in the round of 16. LASK has an impressive record in their European games, having lost only one of their last sixteen matches, with eleven victories and four draws. The team captain, Robert Zulj, is the most noteworthy player for LASK, having scored three goals and recorded one assist in league action. They compete in the Austrian Bundesliga, which grants the third-place team a place in the Europa League play-off round. Considering the history of both teams, Liverpool has the highest probability of winning this game.
Bayer Leverkusen vs. BK Hacken
Bayer Leverkusen and BK Hacken will face each other in a UEFA Europa League match on September 21, 2023, at BayArena. This league falls under Group H, along with Qarabag FK and Molde. Leverkusen, one of the top teams in the Bundesliga, boasts a rich history and a huge fan base and is considered a prominent football club. The club has had notable success in European competitions and reached the UEFA Champions League final during the 2001–2002 season. In their previous encounters, Leverkusen emerged victorious against Aachen in the Club Friendly World with a score of 4-2, while Hacken lost their last game against Degerfors in the Allsvenskan with a score of 1-0. In the Europa League, Leverkusen played against Roma, which ended in a goalless draw, while Hacken won their last Europa League match against Aberdeen with a score of 1-0. Leverkusen’s impressive historical records suggest that they will make the most of this stage and win the upcoming game.
Union Saint-Gilloise vs. Toulouse
On September 21, 2023, Royale Union SG will face Toulouse at Stade Joseph Marien. In this league, they are in Group E, along with LASK, Union Saint-Gilloise, and Liverpool. In their previous Europa League match, the Union Saints played against Lugano and won 1-0. Toulouse drew their last match against Clermont in Ligue 1. The top scorer for the Union Saints is Dennis Ecker, with a score of 5, including three penalty goals. Cameron Puertas scored one penalty goal, and Gustaf Nilsson scored two penalty goals. Toulouse is one of the historical teams that have had a great impact on both domestic and international football. This upcoming league is the fifth European campaign in Toulouse’s history. Both teams enter this season with long dreams, but Toulouse is expected to defeat the Gillois.
Sheriff Tiraspol vs. AS Roma
The Sheriff Tiraspol and AS Roma teams will go head-to-head on Match day 1 of the Europa League’s Group Stage Showdown. Currently, the Sheriff of Tiraspol is ranked second in the Moldovan National Division. The Sheriff team has participated in three UEFA Europa League group stages, but they were unsuccessful in moving on to the next round. Therefore, this time, the Sheriff of Tiraspol will try to at least advance to the season’s knockout round. Their recent performance has been quite strong; their offensive actions are more respectable than their defense. The Sheriff team, however, must continue to play consistently throughout the game flow, which is where they appear to fall short. In contrast, the Roma team is now ranked 18th in the Series A standings. Roma has only made one trip to the Europa League finals, but they have never won the Europa League championships. The Roma club’s recent performance has been rather unsteady, and they do not consistently hold outcomes that are balanced on both sides. Therefore, if the Roma team wanted to win the opening-day game, they would need to put much more effort into their moves. Therefore, it appears that Sheriff Tiraspol will make more noticeable advances and will beat the Roma club in this encounter.
Atalanta BC vs. Rakow Czestochowa
On September 22, 2023, Atlanta and Rakow Czestochowa will play against each other at Gewiss Stadium. In their previous games, Atalanta played against Monza in Series A and won with a score of 3-0, while Rakow defeated GKS in a club friendly with a score of 3-2. After a one-year absence from European competition, the Atlanta Hawks are coming back at full strength. Established in 1907, Atalanta is one of the oldest football clubs in Italy. In the 2022/2023 championship, Rakow Czestochowa ended their game as a runner-up twice and won several Polish cups. Unfortunately, they lost the final of the domestic cup against Legia in a penalty shoot-out. Looking at the upcoming match, Atalanta has a higher chance of winning because they are playing at home, and Rakow is going to play their first European league game. Even though Rakow has a great track record due to their experience and performance, Atalanta still has the upper hand.
AFC Ajax vs. Olympique Marseille
Ajax will compete against Marseille at the Johan Cruijff Arena on September 22, 2023. In their previous encounters, Ajax played two games against Ludogorets in the Europa League, winning one and losing one. Marseille played their last game against Nates, which ended in a draw with a score of 1-1. Before this upcoming match, both teams had met twice in 2019 in the Europa League, and each team had won once. Overall, Ajax has won four European Champions Cups, one UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, two Intercontinental Cups, and one International Football Cup. In Marseille, the club has won nine league titles, ten Coupe de France titles, three Coupe de la Ligue titles, and three Trophée des Champions titles. In total, they played in 107 Europa League games, winning 43. Considering their recent performances and their previous head-to-head match, Ajax has a high possibility of winning this game.
