Who said Europa League is a weakling’s competition? Look at these teams for knockout phase with current Champions League holder in it.
Yep, Chelsea are in the Europa League knockout phase along with Liverpool, Newcastle and Tottenham representing the English contingent.
Put Ajax, Benfica, lazio, Napoli and Inter in there, this has to be the strongest Europa League teams so far since its inception, although this time no Man Utd and Man City.
Wouldn’t it be funny if Chelsea won the Champions League and the Europa League in concecutive year? Probably even someone as ambitious as Roman Abramovich didn’t see that one coming, LOL
Below is the team line up for Europa League 2012-2013 knockout phase, looks interesting indeed.
