Man United facing grueling travel in Europa League

MONACO (AP) — Manchester United will have a long trip to Kazakhstan as well as flights to Serbia and the Netherlands in the group stage of the Europa League.

The three-time champions of the more illustrious European Cup are back in the second-tier competition after finishing sixth in the Premier League last season.

United was drawn into Group L with AZ Alkmaar, Partizan Belgrade and Astana, which is more than six hours by air from Manchester.

Friday’s draw gave Premier League rival Arsenal a more favorable travel schedule for the Thursday night games. The London club was drawn into Group F with Eintracht Frankfurt, Standard Liege and Portuguese club Vitoria.
