The draw for the round of 16 of the Europa League has brought clashes between Dinamo Kiev and Villarreal and Granada with Molde. It can be deduced that the two Spanish teams have been lucky in the draw, since they have avoided facing the great classics of European football, such as Manchester United, Milan, Rome or Arsenal. Granada has been especially lucky, which after eliminating Naples will face Molde, a Norwegian team with a continental tradition but acceptable for the team led by Diego Martínez. Villarreal will face a more powerful team such as Dinamo Kiev, which reached the second competition from the Champions League
Real say goodbye with honor at Old Trafford
These round of 16 leave a star tie as It is Manchester United-Milan. The rest of the pairings are as follows: Ajax-Young Boys; Rome-Shakhtar; Olympiacos-Arsenal; Dinamo Zagreb-Tottenham; and Slavia Prague-Rangers.
The matches will take place on March 11 and 18. The team that came out first plays at home in the first game, so Villarreal will travel first to Ukraine and then host Dinamo, while Granada will play their first match in Los Cármenes and then move to Norwegian lands if not there are limitations imposed by the coronavirus pandemic.
