Thursday is another of the good days if you are a fan of the sport. The UEFA Europa League playoffs start at 10 a.m. and go until 5 p.m., with 42 teams in action across the continent.

Watch for the teams dropping down from Champions League qualification: you will see them as heavy favorites today to make the main draw next Friday in Monaco.
