Europa League: Group Stage draw time for City (complete)

Jo saw time in yesterday's Europa League qualifying match. Will he play in the group stage?

The moment of truth has arrived for Manchester City, as they'll find out this afternoon who will be in their group when Europa League group play starts on September 16th. It is the first European tournament for manager Roberto Mancini with the Blues, and one that by all accounts, City are a favorite to win.

You can follow along live here, and see the results afterwards here. Review the format and rules, and take a look at City's potential opponents here (City seeded in pot 2).
