Europa League: Man Utd face Midtjylland, Liverpool play Augsburg

dejected-manchester-united-players-wolfsburg-champions-league_3386309.jpgManchester United will face Danish side Midtjylland in the last 32 of the Europa League after failing to make the knockout stage of the Champions League.

United were beaten 3-2 by Wolfsburg in the final set of group games last week and now face the side that put Southampton out of the competition during the Europa League qualifying stage.

Midtjylland, whose majority shareholder is Brentford’s owner Matthew Benham, won the Superliga title last season but failed to make it into the group stage of the Champions League as they were knocked out by APOEL Nicosia.

Tottenham’s reward for winning their group is a tough trip to Italy to take on Fiorentina, who knocked Mauricio Pochettino’s side out 3-1 on aggregate at the same stage last season.

And there will be a return to Germany for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, although not against his former club Borussia Dortmund, who were a possible opponent.

They will instead take on Augsburg, who only qualified for the last 32 with a late goal in their final group match against Partizan Belgrade.

Defending champions Sevilla take on Norwegian side Molde and Gary Neville’s Valencia will face Austrian opposition in Rapid Vienna.
