Vital Villa: Europa Cup News
Aston Villa have today confirmed that they will be entering the re-branded Europa Cup at the 'playoff stage.'
Now strangely missing from the official site front-page, replaced by Jack Woodward's 'blog' about Tom Hanks, it was announced that courtesy of Everton's FA Cup appearance, we are now confirmed for the play-off stage.
When is a 'play-off' ahead of a group stage not a qualifier? Answers on a postcard to Mr Platini I think!
Villa will face a two-legged affair in August (20th and 27th.) Martin O'Neill will find out just who we will be up against on the 7th of Aug.
Europe here we come, again.
