The Draw For The Remaining Europa League Games Has Been Made

The Draw For The  Remaining Europa League Games Has Been Made

While the mini Champions League tournament in Lisbon has garnered plenty of attention, little has been made of the fact that the Europa League will have a similarly entertaining schedule.

The event will be held in Germany from the quarter finals onwards, while a couple of last 16 ties will also be played in the country. All games will be straight knockout, meaning there will be no two-legged ties.

The last 16 ties that have played one leg already will see the second game take place in their originally fixed locations, while the other two will be one-legged affairs in Germany.

The draw took place for the remainder of the tournament this afternoon, throwing out some interesting looking ties.

Manchester United look likely to face İstanbul Başakşehir in the quarter finals, with Solskjaer's side holding a 5-0 lead over LASK after their first leg.

Matt Doherty's Wolves have received a tough draw, facing either Sevilla or Roma should they overcome Olympiacos.

Rangers will face Inter or Getafe if they can overturn a 3-1 deficit in their tie against Bayer Leverkusen.
