Manchester United booked our place in the last 16 of this season’s Europa League with a 6-1 aggregate victory over Club Brugge.
Goals from Bruno Fernandes, Odion Ighalo, Scott McTominay and Fred (2) saw us breeze past the Belgian Pro League A leaders 5-0 at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
The draw for the next round has just been made, with Manchester United the last side drawn out of the hat.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will face Austrian Bundesliga outfit LASK Linz, with the first leg taking place at the Linzer Stadion on Thursday 12 March. The second leg takes place the following week, meaning we will be in action for five consecutive Thursday’s, as wel travel to Derby County in the FA Cup next week.
We are joined by fellow Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers as the only two English sides left in the competition following Arsenal’s elimination. LASK could be joined by fellow Austrian side RB Salzburg in the last 16. Their second leg versus Eintracht Frankfurt was postponed due to a nearby hurricane and will be played later today.
The full draw for the last 16 of the 2019-20 UEFA Europa League is as follows:
İstanbul Basaksehir vs Copenhagen
Olympiacos vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
Rangers vs Bayer Leverkusen
Wolfsburg vs Shakhtar Donetsk
Internazionale vs Getafe
