Manchester United will face Austrian Bundesliga side LASK Linz who are currently at the top of the table in Austria. The first leg will be in Austria on the March, 12th and the 2nd leg will be at Old Trafford on March 19th.
I am happy that we didn’t have to face one of the favourites in the competition like Sevilla, Bayer Leverkusen or Inter Milan in the round of 16. We obviously can’t take this team for granted even though they play in a league of much lower quality than the Premier League. Once we play our normal game then we should advance past this team. We have an almost full-strength team now and that just gives Ole more options.
Manchester United is the favourite in many peoples eyes as the team to win this competition. I believe that we are the best amongst the 16 and that when it comes to depth we are probably better than all the rest of squads.
Here is the full Europa League round of 16 draw:
Istanbul Basaksehir v FC Copenhagen
Olympiakos v Wolves
Rangers v Bayer Leverkusen
Wolfsburg v Shakhtar Donetsk
Inter Milan v Getafe
Sevilla v Roma
Frankfurt or Salzburg v FC Basel
LASK Linz v Man United
All ties to be played on March 12th and March 19th.
