Europa League Round Up

Europa League Round Up

The second leg ties for the last 16 round were played yesterday as there were just few surprises as those that were expected to progress to the next round made it.

Manchester United had a straightforward job to do and they did it without much fuss as they defeated Rostov at home in Old Trafford by a lone goal which was scored by midfielder, Juan Mata.

Pogba was taken out injured in the match as well as Daley Blind and United seem as though they might be heading into a mini crisis with the business end of the season reeling in.

Roma defeated Lyon by 2-1 but were unable to move to the next round after losing 4-2 in the first leg of the tie.

The craws for the quarter finals of the competition were held at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland after that of the champions league and the path to the finals is now a bit clearer for the teams who would want to use the competition as a back door to get into the champions league.

Manchester United have been drawn to face Belgian side Anderlecht while Celta Vigo will face Genk, Ajax have been drawn against Schalke, while Lyon will meet Turkish side Besiktas.
