Manchester United v AC Milan is the standout tie in the Europa League’s round of 16 but Spurs will be pleased with their draw while Arsenal can get revenge reports Max Liu…
“Tottenham 5.79/2 follow United in the outright betting and Jose Mourinho’s team will play Dinamo Zagreb in the round of 16.”
At the time of writing the Red Devils are 4.47/2 but they were around 3.8514/5 before the draw.
The Italian giants, who were until recently top of Serie A, are 12.5 to win the Europa League.
Like United, Milan have experienced fallow years in the past decade but they’re enjoying their best season for some time in 2020/21. That’s largely down to the form of the evergreen Zlatan Ibrahimovic who’s scored 15 goals for the Rossoneri this term.
The 39-year-old is a popular figure at Old Trafford after playing for the club for two seasons under Jose Mourinho.
Spurs land Zagreb while for Arsenal it’s Olympiakos again
Tottenham 5.79/2 come next in the outright betting and they will play Dinamo Zagreb.
Jose Mourinho has won this competition twice, with Porto and with United, and would love to add a third to boost his standing at Spurs. While they’re struggling in the Premier League, Mourinho’s team are playing well in the Europa having tonked Wolfsberger 8-1 on aggregate in the previous round.
Zagreb have lost nine of their last 10 matches against English opposition, although they dropped into this competition from the Champions League where they beat Atalanta earlier this season.
Arsenal’s reward for getting past Benfica is a match against familiar opponents Olympiakos. The sides have met 10 times, winning five each. Last season the Greeks knocked out the Gunners in the round of 32.
Mikel Arteta’s side will be determined to get their revenge this time. They’re out of the FA Cup and adrift in the Premier League so this should be their priority. They’re 7.413/2 to win the competition.
Rangers to face tough Czech opponents
Rangers finished off Antwerp in style last night, winning 5-2 at Ibrox, and now Steve Gerrard’s men will play Slavia Prague.
The Czech club didn’t concede a goal in conquering Leicester City in the round of 32 and their 2-0 win at the King Power showed Jindřich Trpišovský’s men are a force to be reckoned with.
The Gers are as long as 20.019/1 in the outright market.
