HNK Rijeka will play in Group D of the UEFA Europa League against the Italian AC Milan, Austria Wien, and Greek club AEK Athens.
Rijeka will thus have an opportunity to measure their strength against Milan, one of the best clubs in the world. Austria Wien won its place in the Group by beating Osijek, while AEK knocked out Club Brugge.
- We have got a few more spectacular football nights for Rijeka fans. These are all great clubs, but Rijeka has been improving throughout the years and I believe we can successfully battle against anyone. I believe we will enjoy European football again this fall, said Ivan Mance.
