It's been a few years since Everton were last in Europe, and in that time we've picked up lots of newer fans. In case you're among that lot and are not sure what all the hullabaloo is all about, make sure you tune in to the game today (click here for LiveSoccerTV info).
The opponents tonight will be VfL Wolfsburg from Germany's Bundesliga, a team that is only a few seasons removed from winning the League title. They're laden with internationals, and had seven players feature at this summer's World Cup in Brazil.
Group H is one of the toughest in the Europa League:
- Everton - finished 5th in the English Premier League
- VfL Wolfsburg - finished 5th in the German Bundesliga, 1 pt out of the Champions League spots
- Lille - finished 3rd in French Ligue 1, knocked out by Porto in Champions League playoffs
- FC Krasnodar - finished 5th in Russian Premier League, knocked out Real Sociedad in Europa playoffs
