Spain send four teams to Europa League round of 16, and England send tree. So the draws between two teams from the same country are unavoidable.
Liverpool will meet their old foes Manchester United, while Gary Neville’s Valencia will face Athletic Bilbao, the team that Neville’s men are about to meet this weekend. Neville will have the opportunity to learn everything about the next opponents in european clash, first hand. 😁
And Juergen Klopp’s Liverpool will have a chance to take revenge on Luis van Gaal’s United. 👍;)
Germany manage to send two teams to the last 16. And sadly for Italy, they are only able to send Lazio to the last 16. My favourite teams, Napoli and Fiorentina, have failed to qualify.
Defending champions Sevilla have the qualities and experiences to win this competition again, but Tottenham Hotspur have the speed and strength to win it too. These two football teams are my favourites to win this edition of Europa League.
