Granada will debut in Europe as seed

The Nasrid team will enter the Europa League in the second round draw on Monday, August 31, and will do so as seed in their first continental participation in their history


Granada will debut its participation in Europe on Monday, August 31, entering its first draw in its history. And he will do so as a seed in the second round of the Europa League. His coefficient of 20,456 points will put him in the first pot of the draw that will take place in Nyom (Switzerland), thus avoiding the 'coconuts' of this phase such as Milan, Tottenham, Basel, Copenhagen or Wolfsburg. Its continental premiere will be on September 17, behind closed doors and a single match, so in the event of a tie, there will be first extension and then penalties.

Granada thus has, in principle, a slightly less complicated path to enter the third phase, being again the only Spanish representative in these first phases. As rivals, you can find the Swedish Goteborg, the Swiss Servette or the Bulgarian CSKA Sofia among the most prominent teams. The rest, teams, in principle, from minor leagues such as the Lincoln Reds of Gibraltar, the Kukesi of Albania, the Ventspils of Latvia, the Kaysar Kyzylorda of Kazakhstan, the Thorshavn of the Faroe Islands or the Neftchi Bako of Azerbaijan. Major league teams will accompany the Nasrids in the first pot.

The team from Granada arrives on the 'Route of the League', also avoiding those eliminated from the Champions League, who go through the 'Route of Champions'. If Granada passed this second preliminary round, it would still have to overcome the third round to reach the group stage, already for October. In fact, the third round will be raffled on Tuesday, September 1, also in Nyom and without yet knowing the results of this second round. The third round would be played, also in a single match and closed doors a week later, on September 24.
