The Europa League draw took place on Monday.
Here are the results.
The UEFA Europa League (UEL) Round of 32 draw for the 2019/20 season has finally concluded, and we have some mouthwatering ties lined up. Among the recognizable teams in the Round of 32 are Manchester United and Arsenal, both of whom made it through as group winners, and have some interesting opposition to contend with.
The first team drawn for the knockouts was England’s Wolverhampton, who have impressed this season in the Premier League and in Europe, and they were handed a tie against Espanyol of Spain. Arsenal were handed a tough trip to Greece to play against Olympiacos per the draw, where Freddie Ljungberg’s side will have their work cut out for them.
Manchester United secured qualification to the UEL knockout rounds as group winners by beating AZ Alkmaar 4-0 at Old Trafford recently, and have been drawn against Club Brugge of Belgium, who drop down from the UEFA Champions League group stage. Arsenal’s Greek opponents also dropped into the Europa League after finishing third in their Champions League group behind Tottenham. Olympiakos could only manage one win and a draw from their six matches.
The first legs of the Europa League round of 32 will take place on 20 February and the second legs on February 27. Other notable ties include Getafe against Ajax, Roma vs. Gent and Inter Milan against Ludogorets.
Bayer Leverkusen face Porto and fellow Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt will play Salzburg, who finished behind Liverpool and Napoli in their Champions League group. Ajax, Roma and Inter also failed to qualify for the Champions League knockout phase.
