2014-Europa League draw: Field set for next two rounds

Harold Cunningham

You don't look for the first knockout round of the UEFA Europa League to have much in the way of excitement, but there's actually a reasonably big game on the cards with Swansea City vs. Napoli. Other than that, most of the big sides have avoided each other -- Juventus vs. Trabzonspor might be interesting as the Old Lady look to take vengeance on everything Turkey-related -- but there's every chance that we get some good games in the Round of 16.

UEFA has drawn both rounds at once, so we've formatted the draw as matched pairs of games. Here you go:

  • Slovan Liberec vs. AZ Alkmaar
  • Anzhi Makhachkala vs. Genk
  • Lazio vs. Ludogorets Razgrad
  • Dynamo Kiev vs. Valencia
  • Porto vs. Eintracht Frankfurt
  • Swansea vs. Napoli
  • Chornomorets Odessa vs. Lyon
  • Viktoria Plzen vs. Shakhtar Donetsk
  • Maribor vs. Sevilla
  • Real Betis vs. Rubin Kazan
  • Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk vs. Tottenham Hotspur
  • PAOK vs. Benfica
  • Maccabi Tel Aviv vs. Basel
  • Ajax vs. Salzburg
  • Juventus vs. Trabzonspor
  • Esbjerg vs. Fiorentina

Anyone else looking forward to a potential Juventus-Fiorentina clash? How about Spurs-Benfica? Betis-Sevilla? Napoli-Porto? Either we get some of those, or we get some upsets. This Europa League lark might not be so bad after all.
