Uefa Europa League last 16 draw: Rangers and Man Utd find out opponents
Although the dust has barely settled on the previous round, the Europa League last-16 draw has been made.
At the time of the draw, 17 sides were awaiting their potential fate with Red Bull Salzburg and Eintracht Frankfurt’s second leg being postponed to later on Friday evening due to bad weather.
The round-of-32 saw some big shocks happen with Premier League Arsenal knocked out by Olympiacos on away goals, after losing 2-1 at the Emirates.
Who awaits the three British clubs in the Europa League?
- Manchester United: LASK.
- Wolves: Olympiacos.
- Rangers: Bayer Leverkusen.
- The first legs are set to be played on Thursday, 12 March.
- And the second legs come a week later on Thursday, 19 March.
They join the likes of Ajax, Porto, Sporting CP, Benfica and Celtic in going out of the Europa League at the first knockout stage.
But for the teams remaining, three of whom are British, they now know who stands between them and a place in the quarter-finals.
Manchester United’s reward for seeing off Club Brugge is a tie against Austrian side LASK, in the last-16 of the Europa League for the first time in their history.
Wolverhampton Wanderers will continue their European adventure in a two-legged tie with Arsenal’s conquerers Olympiacos, playing the first leg away from home as the Gunners did.
And Rangers, in the last-16 of the Europa League for the first time since 2011, face German side Bayer Leverkusen.
The last-16 ties are set to be played on 12 and 19 March, with the quarter-final and semi-final draws taking place on Friday, 20 March.
