Results of the 1/16 finals of the Europa League

These
are first of all, Atlético
Madrid,
Athletic Bilbao, Arsenal London, Milan, Marseille, Sporting Lisbon
and Leipzig. And according to the results of return legs the company
of seven favorites was joined by three Russian clubs – CSKA,
Lokomotiv and Zenit and also German Borussia Dortmund, Italian
Lazio, French Olympique
Lyonnais,
Austrian Salzburg, FC Viktoria Plzeň
and Ukrainian Dynamo
Kyiv.

And
this fact at first sight seems to be paradoxic but the Russian
Premier League became the most representative in 1/8 finals of the
Europa League 2018:

Russia
– 3, Spain – 2, Italy – 2, Germany – 2, France – 2, England,
Portugal, Ukraine, Austria and the Czech Republic – 1point each
club.

The
drawing procedure of the 1/8 finals of the Europa League happened in
the Swiss headquarters of UEFA on the 23rd
of Friday.

And
now the most interesting fact! This time no top-lists and baskets of
seed teams. All sixteen spheres with the names of 1/8 finals
participants will be placed in one basket. And therefore all eight
pairs of the next stage of the playoffs will be defined by a
so-called “blind” lot.

However,
this drawing procedure, nevertheless, has one restriction!
Representatives of Russia and Ukraine, as before, will be included in
different pairs. The first matches of the 1/8 finals will take place
on the 8th
of March and return legs at the fields of the rivals will take place
on the 15th
of March!
