The second leg series of the Europa League last 32 for the 2020/21 season has ended, where there are 16 clubs that have secured tickets to the next round, including the Italian Serie A giants, AC Milan.
So, based on the results of the online drawing made by UEFA on Friday morning (26/02), AC Milan will face a tough opponent, namely Manchester United.
The meeting of the two teams is considered very appropriate, considering that both of them are ‘onfire’ in their respective leagues, after going through difficult times in recent years.
Of course, Stefano Pioli’s tactical strategic combat and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad’s elegant play style will really entertain football fans.
However, apart from the Manchester United versus AC Milan duel, there are several other matches that are no less interesting, including the meeting between Olympiacos and Arsenal.
On paper, Arsenal may look superior but at the moment Mikel Arteta’s men still tend to be “fickle” in terms of performance, even they barely qualify for the last 16. Meanwhile, Olympiacos performed brilliantly in the Greek League.
Yes, there are only two English representatives left in the last 16 of the Europa League this season, while the other Italian representatives, namely AS Roma, were brought up against the giants of the Ukrainian League, Shakhtar Donetsk. This will also be an exciting duel for the European mid-table team.
As for more details, here are the draw results for the last 16 of the 2020/21 Europa League season.
– Ajax Amsterdam (Netherlands) vs BSC Young Boys (Switzerland)
– Dynamo Kiev (Ukraine) vs Villarreal (Spain)
