Last season's beaten finalists Roma, boosted by the recent loan signing of Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea, will take on Slavia Prague, Sheriff Tiraspol, Servette, while Europa Conference League winners West Ham face Olympiacos, Freiburg, TSC Bracka Topola.
Premier League counterparts Brighton & Hove Albion will make their Europa League debut after being handed a mouthwatering draw against Marseille, Ajax and AEK Athens.

Where is 2024 Europa League final?
The 2024 Europa League final is set to take place at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Republic of Ireland. The stadium is primarily used by the Republic of Ireland football team and the Irish rugby union team.
The UEFA Executive Committee came to this decision due to complications during UEFA Euro 2020, caused by COVID-19. The stadium in Dublin was set to be a host for the international tournament, but withdrew due to the pandemic.
In a settlement agreement with UEFA, it was agreed that Aviva Stadium would host the 2024 Europa League final due to recognition for their efforts and financial investment made to host the Euros.
It previously hosted the final in 2011, when Porto beat Portuguese counterparts Braga 1-0 thanks to a Radamel Falcao goal.
