Europa League last 32 fixtures as Man Utd, Arsenal and Tottenham discover fate

There are a number of intriguing ties to look out for in the Europa League last 32 with five British sides looking to progress to the latter stages of the competition.

After Manchester United were knocked out of the Champions League last week their reward for finishing third in their group is an intriguing tie against Spanish side Real Sociedad.

United will travel to the Basque country first to take on the La Liga team before hosting them at Old Trafford in arguably the pick of the ties.

Meanwhile, Arsenal will look to put their Premier League woes behind them when they take on Portuguese giants Benfica.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would desperately love to win the Europa League with Manchester United

It is another thrilling draw, and one which certainly looks to be among the most entertaining prospects on paper.

The Gunners’ rivals Tottenham, on the other hand, were drawn a relatively kind-looking tie against Austrian side Wolfsberger, and Jose Mourinho’s side will be strong favourites to progress.

And the same is true of Leicester, who face Czech team Slavia Prague in their first ever Europa League last-32 tie.

Arsenal won all their group stage games

Rounding off the British interest, Steven Gerrard’s Rangers take on Belgian side Antwerp, who beat Spurs in their group on their way to finishing second.
