Draw to come

It's the Europa League draw this lunchtime. Here are the pots. I suppose the easiest draw (factoring not just ability levels but disruptive distances) we could get would be something like: AZ Alkmaar, Odense and Lausanne, whereas the hardest would be Juventus, Borussia Dortmund and either Young Boys or Karpaty Lviv.

Basically, most of the Pot 1 teams are strong, we're in Pot 2 and while most of Pot 3 is negotiable it does include Dortmund and Napoli, both of whom must be avoided. Pot 4 is fairly weak if a bit too exotic.

From a personal preference I'd probably like one big tie from Pot 1 (Juve, Atléti or Porto) and then two other poor teams.
