Manchester United have faced Barcelona and Real Sociedad in the Europa League this term, and another LaLiga team awaits them in the last 16.
Manchester United have been drawn to face Real Betis in the Europa League’s round of 16, while Arsenal will battle Sporting CP for a quarter-final spot.
United came from behind to clinch a 2-1 victory over Barcelona at Old Trafford on Thursday, and their reward for a 4-3 aggregate triumph over the Blaugrana is a tie against another Spanish opponent.
Having not lifted any silverware since winning this competition in 2017, United are in the hunt for four trophies this term, though Erik ten Hag’s men will be tested by a side sat fifth in LaLiga.
Betis boss Manuel Pellegrini has faced United on four previous occasions in European competitions, with all four games finishing goalless during his time with Villarreal (in the 2005-06 and 2008-09 Champions League group stages).
Premier League leaders Arsenal will face Sporting after Ruben Amorim’s team thrashed Midtjylland 5-1 on aggregate in the knockout round play-offs.
Sporting have progressed from each of their previous six ties against English teams in the knockout stages of the UEFA Cup/Europa League, with all six coming against different teams.
The other standout last-16 ties see Juventus meet Freiburg, while Jose Mourinho’s Roma will take on Real Sociedad as they bid to follow up last season’s inaugural Europa Conference League triumph.
Feyenoord, who Roma beat in the final of that competition, have been paired with Shakhtar Donetsk, while surprise Bundesliga challengers Union Berlin will face Belgium’s Union Saint-Gilloise.
Six-time winners Sevilla – the most successful club in UEFA Cup/Europa League history – will face Fenerbahce, while Bayer Leverkusen will take on Ferencvaros.
The first legs of the last-16 ties will take place on March 9, with the group-stage winners hosting the return fixtures one week later.
