How does the draw work? When it comes to the Europa League last-16 draw, there will be no seedlings or country protection later on.
Thankfully it’s an open draw for once, with every side able to play each other.
The first team drawn gets the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 clash at home with the second leg then played at the home of the team drawn second.
The first leg of the last-16 ties is scheduled to be played on 12 March, with the second leg a week later on 19 March.
THE EUROPA LEAGUE LAST 16 DRAW:
Istanbul Basaksehir v FC Copenhagen
Olympiakos v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Rangers v Bayer Leverkusen
Wolfsburg v Shakhtar Donetsk
Inter Milan v Getafe
Sevilla v AS Roma
Red Bull Salzburg or Eintracht Frankfurt v Basel
LASK v Manchester United
For those not knowing who LASK are, they are the current Austrian Bundesliga league leaders who dropped down from the Champions League qualifying rounds after losing against Club Brugge.
They have already faced the likes of PSV Eindhoven, Sporting Lisbon and AZ Alkmaar on their way to the last 16. United’s Bruno Fernandes has already scored against them this season!

Many harder draws than this. Podence should be well up for it too. Not a certain but we'll fancy our chances of course. They'll be more disappointed than us thats for sure.
