Europa League draw: Manchester United face Saint-Etienne in last 32, Villarreal play Roma

Manchester United have been drawn to play Saint-Etienne in the last 32 of the Europa League.

The tie will see United’s world-record signing Paul Pogba come up against his brother Florentin, a Saint-Etienne defender.

Jose Mourinho’s side were runners-up to Fenerbahce in Group A, while Saint-Etienne topped Anderlecht, Mainz and Gabala in Group C to reach the first knockout round.

Elsewhere, a standout tie sees LaLiga side Villarreal take on Serie A heavyweights Roma, while Tottenham play Belgian team Gent.

Villarreal and Roma both came through the group stages after dropping into the competition when they lost out in Champions League qualifying in August.

The Spanish side came second to Osmanlispor in Group L, while Roma finished first in Group E.

Spurs, meanwhile, dropped out of the Champions League proper and are paired with Gent, who were second in Europa League Group H.

Borussia Monchengladbach – who also move into the competition after finishing third in their Champions League group – take on Fiorentina, Celta Vigo meet Shakhtar Donetsk and Lyon come up against AZ.
