End of the round of 16 return to the Europa League this Thursday, March 16 with the objective of qualifying for the quarter-finals.
Admittedly, no team lost at home on Thursday 9 March. But the challenge this Thursday, March 16 during these matches is obviously a place in the quarter-finals of the Europa League. Some clubs have cards to play in these meetings. This is for example the case of Sporting who unfortunately conceded a draw at home against Arsenal (2-2). But the Portuguese had been dominating against the Premier League leader who was worried. Union Berlin and Union Saint-Gilloise are neck and neck like Shakhtar and Feyenoord.
Juventus who held their rank only have a slight advantage and the Italians will have to be wary in Germany of Freiburg. AS Roma and Bayer Leverkusen will travel to Real Sociedad and Ferencvaros with more certainty having planted two goals without taking any in the first leg. Finally Manchester United will go to Bétis Sevilla with a rather calm mind. They won 4-1 last week.
