THE EUROPA LEAGUE is BACK on our screens, which means the round of 16 draw is nearly here!
Group stage winners – such as Arsenal – go into the draw seeded with the knockout play-off winners – such as Man Utd or Barcelona – unseeded.
The knockout play-off teams are those who have dropped down from the Champions League alongside teams who finished runners up in their Europa League groups.
So they play another round of fixtures before the group winners join in the last 16.
Being a seeded group stage winner means you play your second leg at home.
Clubs from the same association cannot be drawn against each other – so no Arsenal vs Man Utd…yet.
