Manchester United will begin their Europa League campaign with a last-32 tie against Danish side FC Midtjylland, while their arch rivals Liverpool have been drawn against Augsburg.
Louis van Gaal‘s side were part of the draw in Nyon this afternoon after they dropped out of the Champions League following a 3-2 defeat to Wolfsburg last week.
The Red Devils could have faced Valencia – the club coached by their former captain Gary Neville – but they avoided the Spanish side and were instead handed a two-legged tie against the Danish Superliga outfit.
Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp faced a potential reunion with his former club Borussia Dortmund, but it was not to be as the Merseyside outfit were dealt a last-32 tie against German side Augsburg, whom Klopp has only lost to once in eight meetings.
Tottenham Hotspur – the only other English team in the competition – face a difficult knockout clash againstFiorentina, who will host the Premier League club before travelling to White Hart Lane for the return leg.
Neville’s Valencia side, who also exited the Champions League last week, will face Rapid Vienna.
