Man Utd: Mourinho reacts to Europa League drop
The UEFA Europa League group stages came to an end last week, with Arsenal, Tottenham, Leicester City and Rangers all successfully navigating their groups. A number of teams also joined the Europa League after dropping out of the Champions League, including Manchester United. The draw for the Round of 32 takes place later today, but who could play who?
Arsenal won all six of their group stage matches to top Group B in the Europa League.
Steven Gerrard’s side Rangers also successfully qualified for the knockout phase, after impressively topping Group D, which also featured Benfica and Standard Liege.
Elsewhere, Leicester City managed to finish top of Group G, ahead of Braga.
Tottenham accumulated 13 points from their six games to cement their place among the seeded teams.
But, Celtic won’t be appearing in the knockout stage draw, after finishing bottom of Group H.
Manchester United finished third in their Champions League group, which means they drop into the Europa League.
It’s a similar story for Ajax and RB Salzburg, who couldn’t qualify for the Champions League Round of 16.
Teams that drop into the Europa League from the Champions League are categorised into seeded and unseeded groups based on their European coefficient.
