Manchester United face a gruelling trip to Russia in the last 16 of the Europa League, while Lyon tackle Roma in the round’s stand-out tie
Celta Vigo v FC Krasnodar
Apoel v Anderlecht
As for Manchester United, they’ll take a tie with FC Rostov. That said, the Russians reached the Europa League largely thanks to a shock home win over Bayern Munich in their Champions League, so United won’t want to take them lightly. The tie also comes during a draining period for United. They’ll be in Russia on 9 March, travel to Chelsea in the FA Cup on 13 March and play the second leg on 16 March. Ouch. Luckily for Jose Mourinho, he has a big squad. There might even be some game time for the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Wayne Rooney. But that’s all from me for today. Thanks for reading. Bye!
