On September 14, the group stage of the Europa League will begin. Three Italians are competing: Atalanta, Milan and Lazio. Here's how to see the matches in streaming
Togheter with the Champions League also starts the Europa League, the second most important football tournament of the year. What was once called Uefa Cup, in recent years has always been snubbed by Italian teams, but the 2017/2018 edition could be the good one. Three teams will participate in the 2017/2018 Europa League: AC Milan, Lazio and Atalanta. The matches will be broadcast by Sky Sport and Tv8 and can also be seen in live streaming on SkyGo's online platform.
The 2017/2018 edition of the Europa League sees the return in European competitions of Milan. The Rossoneri club after the change of ownership has invested over 200 million euros on the market and is one of the natural favorites for the final victory. At the moment there are no other teams with the same coat of arms and the same quality in the squad: the only opponent worthy of note is Arsenal. However, the teams that came third in the Champions League group stage will also be in the round of 16, and the road for Milan could become complicated.
The Europa League television rights have been acquired by Sky. All matches will be broadcast live on the satellite TV sports channels, while one match a week will be broadcast live on Tv8, the digital terrestrial channel owned by Sky. For those who can not follow the games sitting comfortably on the couch at home, will have the opportunity to see the Europa League live streaming on the SkyGo platform and on the website of Tv8.

The first match of the elimination rounds of the Europa League will be on September 14, while the sixth match will be on December 7. The final of the Europa League will be played in Lyon on May 16. Hopefully, there will be at least one Italian team.
The draw for the 2017/2018 Europa League groupings was not a bad one. Milan was seeded and had a lot of luck: they will meet Austria Vienna, Rijeka and AEK Athens. Lazio's group is slightly more complicated, but Simone Inzaghi's team can pass the round quite easily, the only stumbling block is Nice, eliminated from the third preliminary round of the Champions League by Napoli. For Atalanta, on the other hand, the draws did not go well: the team from Bergamo will face Everton, Lyon and Apollon Limassol.
