Europa League 2016-17

(From 30-06-2016 to 24-05-2017)

 

 

COMPETITION SYSTEM

·          188 teams (best qualified clubs in domestic leagues, domestic Cup winners and extra participants) play four qualifying rounds on a home and away basis. The access of participants in these rounds depends on how their country is ranked in UCR (direct berths) or other factors (extra berths). The aggregate score of both games decides the winner. Ties are resolved with: 1) the “away goals double value” rule; 2) a 30 minutes extra-time after regulation; 3) a penalty shoot-out (pk).

·          The 48 surviving teams after the previous knock-out rounds participate in a Group Stage, divided in 12 groups of 4 teams each playing a round robin (3 points per victory, 1 point per draw). The group winners and runners-up qualify for a Round of 32, with winners advancing further to a Round of 16, Quarterfinals and Semifinals. The criteria to determine the final classification within the groups are (in this order): 1) total points earned; 2) goal average; 3) away goals; 4) UEFA Country Ranking at the beginning of the season.

·          A final game is played at a predetermined venue.

PARTICIPANTS AND BERTH ASSIGNMENT

155 entrants as a result of UEFA Country Ranking (UCR) for the period 2011-2015 and 33 more entrants depending on different factors. The berth assignment is as follows:

 

Direct berths (155): 49 countries (places 1-51 in UCR, except Spain and Liechtenstein) with 3 teams; 3 countries (Spain, San Marino and Andorra) with 2 teams; 2 countries (Liechtenstein and Gibraltar) with 1 team.

 

Extra berths (33): 33 teams qualified via Champions League 2016-17 (15 losers from Third Qualifying Round, 10 losers from the Qualification Playoff and 8 third-placed teams after the League Stage).

 

 

FIRST QUALIFYING ROUND

RESUMEN DEL PARTIDO (GAME SUMMARY)

 

El Manchester United acabó con una sequía europea de nueve años al derrotar más cómodamente de lo previsto a un desconocido e inexperto Ajax en la final de la Europa League, y de paso inscribió su nombre en el selecto club de equipos que han conquistado los tres títulos europeos (Liga de Campeones, Recopa de Europa y Europa League). En consonancia con una temporada de luces y sombras, los Diablos Rojos fueron más prácticos que brillantes en una final escasa de fútbol, en la que los hombres de Mourinho impusieron su mayor físico y su organización defensiva. Ander Herrera, centrocampista español del Manchester United, fue nombrado mejor jugador de la final, apenas seis días después de ser elegido mejor jugador del año del equipo inglés por los aficionados locales. Por su parte Rashford, decisivo en la semifinal frente al Celta, estuvo desaparecido en combate.

 

Manchester United y Ajax ofrecieron en Estocolmo dos propuestas de juego diametralmente opuestas. El United de Mourinho ―lejos de la fragilidad defensiva que había lastrado su juego durante los últimos años― esperó y se arropó atrás, reforzado por su superioridad física y su mayor experiencia. Enfrente, el once más joven en la historia de las finales europeas apostó por el mismo estilo de juego ofensivo y veloz que le había llevado hasta la final. El problema para los holandeses fue que esta vez se encontraron con un equipo que supo anular sus virtudes a la perfección. Sin la referencia en punta de un inactivo Dolberg, Younes y Ziyech también se apagaron ante un Manchester United que se sentía cómodo sobre el césped y que apenas pasó apuros defensivos.

 

La final comenzó a decantarse a favor del United a los 18 minutos cuando, tras un mal saque de banda del Ajax, el balón acabó en la frontal del área y Paul Pogba, con un disparo que desvió el central Davinson Sánchez, firmó el 0-1. Los intentos de reacción del Ajax durante la primera mitad resultaron infructuosos. El partido quedó prácticamente sentenciado apenas iniciada la segunda mitad, tras el primer córner del conjunto inglés en la final, que remachó a la red en el área pequeña Henrikh Mkhitaryan en semichilena y de puntera, al más puro estilo Ibrahimović. La sustitución de Dolberg, delantero centro y máxima estrella del Ajax, fue el fiel reflejo de la inoperancia ofensiva del Ajax. Únicamente Traoré parecía agitar el partido con su velocidad, pero sus intervenciones ganaron en intermitencia y perdieron en profundidad. En contraste con el vendaval ofensivo que había sido durante toda la competición, el conjunto ajacied ni siquiera logró hacer sufrir al United durante los últimos minutos del choque, y el guardameta argentino Sergio Romero apenas vio inquietada su portería. De esta forma, el Manchester United pudo salvar una temporada mediocre con un título europeo y el billete de vuelta a la Liga de Campeones.
