Europa League draw as Manchester United, Wolves and Rangers learn fate

Manchester United, Wolves and Rangers have discovered who they will face in the quarter and semi-finals of the Europa League, should they secure progression following the draw.

Each of the three remaining British sides must first navigate the second leg of their last-16 ties, with Manchester United in the strongest position to move to the last eight after securing a comprehensive 5-0 first-leg victory over Austrian side LASK.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will meet either Copenhagen or Istanbul Basaksehir in the quarter-finals, the Turkish side possessing a 1-0 advantage ahead of the return fixture in Denmark scheduled for August 5.

Wolves secured a 1-1 draw at Olympiakos in the first leg of their last-16 tie and, should they progress at the expense of the Greek outfit, face a difficult looking quarter-final contest, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side to meet either Roma or record winners Sevilla in the last eight.

Rangers were beaten 3-1 by Bayer Leverkusen at Ibrox in their first leg back in March, but should Steven Gerrard’s side complete an incredible comeback they will face either Inter Milan or Getafe in the next stage.

The remaining quarter-final tie will see either Shakhtar Donetsk or Wolfsburg face Basel or last season’s semi-finalists Eintracht Frankfurt, whilst there could also be an all-Premier League semi-final encounter with Manchester United and Wolves placed together on the same side of the draw for the last four.
