What is Aston Villa's Europa Conference League journey so far?
Given the competition's relative infancy, there is no history between Aston Villa and the Europa Conference League. However, the Villans will draw on the relative success of prior Premier League sides Leicester City - semi-finalists in 2021-22 - and West Ham - winners in 2022-23 as they look to embark on a deep run.
Villa does have European heritage however, being just one of six English sides to win the UEFA Champions League - albeit in its prior incarnation as the European Cup, during the 1981-82 campaign - while they were also winners of the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2001.
With double success in Europe thanks to Manchester City and the Hammers last term, Villa will have high hopes they can help engineer further triumphs for Premier League outfits across the 2023-24 campaign, with the club one of eight teams embarking on continental journeys this season.

Aston Villa will begin their 2023-24 UEFA Europa Conference League campaign with six group stage matches played in Group E. Having finished seventh in the Premier League, and despite a low UEFA coefficient after a lengthy absence, they are seeded second and will hope to seal progress to the knockout stages.
Villa will face three teams, home and away, between September and December, and has arguably been handed a reasonable group on paper. They will play against Eredivisie side AZ, Ekstraklasa runners-up Legia Warsaw and Bosnian Premier League champions Zrinjski Mostar.
