Europa League: Round of 32 results

1 Comment

Last week the Europa League became a knockout tournament. As explained in the draw for this stage, the 8 Champions League third placed teams join the 24 Europa League group winners and second placed sides. From now on in, every match (bar the final) will consist of two legs: a home and away one. The winner of the tie will be determined by aggregate and away goals count (i.e. winning 2-1 at home but losing 1-0 away means you would depart due to the other team scoring that away goal). If the scores are the same after both lots of 90 minutes, such as a 1-0 home win in both legs, then the match progresses to extra time and potentially penalties. Away goals still count in extra time.

In my article, Europa League: Round of 32 draw, I gave you the details regarding the draw for this round. Last thursday (19th Feb) saw the first legs being played and this article will provide you with the details of those results as well as being updated following this weeks matches to show who went through. For some, tonight (26th Feb) should be a formality. It is hard to see how Everton and Napoli (with 4 away goals apiece) will fail to be in the round of 16 however this is football and stranger things have happened in the past. For those reading this before the fixtures tonight, I shall state which British TV channels are showing which matches. All times are the kick off times in Britain.

Of the remaining 16 teams, 5 are from Italy. All Italian teams, Roma, Inter, Fiorentina, Napoli and Torino all made it through and it would be safe money to bet on one of them going all the way. The 2 Russian sides, Zenit and Dyanmo Moscow are competent sides and will be a threat to anyone. Those sides are joined in the next round by a Belgian outfit (Club Brugge), a Turkish threat (Beşiktaş) and a couple of Ukranian teams (Dnipro and Kyiv). Of the remaining powerhouses, Germany saw Mönchengladbach depart but Wolfsburg progress, Spain have Sevilla and Villarreal in the next round but not Bilbao whilst Britain lost all of their representatives except Everton. The final side entering the next stage will be Ajax.

So, as 16 intriguing ties come to an end, another 8 must begin. As with all competitions, the quality will increase with each round gone. As there are fewer and fewer teams, there is more chance of big teams facing each other. Keep checking this blog for updates on European’s second competition.
