THIS year’s Europa League is starting to build towards a crescendo.
With the final in Gdansk on May 27, the remaining sixteen teams who make it through this week’s last-32 round are set to learn their fate in the latest draw.
The first legs of these ties will be played on Thursday March 12, with the second legs a week later on March 19.
When is the Europa League last 16 draw?
FOLLOWING the conclusion of the first knockout stage this Thursday, Uefa waste no time in getting the draw done.
It will take place in Nyom, Switzerland on Friday, February 28.
There are no restrictions on who faces who in this round – so it is possible that two English sides will play each other.
The draw gets going at midday GMT.
Which TV channel and live stream can I watch it on?
YOU can catch all the draw live on BT Sport 1 here in the UK.
