The first knockout round of the Europa League was drawn in Nyon. The winners of the duels advance to the round of 16 of the competition, for which SC Freiburg is already seeded. Two German teams got their opponents. They’re quite attractive. 1. FC Union Berlin meets Ajax Amsterdam, Bayer Leverkusen has to deal with AS Monaco. There is also a duel between FC Barcelona and Manchester United.

More to come.
