Europa League draw: United all smiles; tough tests for Inter, Roma

28.2.2020 13:10

The round of 16 in this season's Europa League carries plenty of intrigue.

The draw was held Friday in Nyon, Switzerland, and offered up several interesting fixtures that look - at least on paper - to be finely poised.

The marquee matchups arguably involve the two remaining Italian clubs. Roma will meet perennial Europa League contenders Sevilla, while Scudetto hopefuls Inter Milan will face La Liga upstarts Getafe, who are fresh off eliminating Ajax, last season's Champions League semifinalists.

It was all smiles for Manchester United, who were drawn along with Austrian side LASK, the lowest-ranked team remaining in the tournament. The Premier League's other representative, Wolverhampton Wanderers, have a date with Olympiacos, who sent Arsenal packing in stunning fashion on Thursday to reach the round of 16.

Here's the draw in full:

  • Istanbul Basaksehir vs. FC Copenhagen
  • Olympiacos vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers
  • Rangers vs. Bayer Leverkusen
  • Wolfsburg vs. Shakhtar Donetsk
  • Inter Milan vs. Getafe
  • Sevilla vs. AS Roma
  • Eintracht Frankfurt or Red Bull Salzburg vs. FC Basel
  • LASK vs. Manchester United

The first legs of each fixture will all take place on March 12, with the decisive second legs slated for March 19.
