Europa League Draw: Manchester United v St. Etienne

It will be a family affair in the Europa League Round of 32 as Paul Pogba and Manchester United have been drawn against St Etienne and his Florentin.

Tottenham will travel to face Belgium club Gent having entered the competition following their third-place finish in the Champions League group stage.

United will be away for their second leg on Wednesday February 22 in accordance with the principles set by the Club Competitions Committee, as local rivals Lyon are at home to AZ Alkmaar on the Thursday.

The Ligue 1 side are eighth in their domestic league but were unbeaten in their six Europa League group games, winning three and drawing three in matches against Anderlecht, Mainz and Qabala.

Tottenham were among the four seeded sides to have entered Europe’s secondary competition and they were handed a two-legged tie with Belgium outfit Gent, who finished third in the their top-flight last campaign.

It remains to be seen if manager Mauricio Pochettino opts to take Europe’s secondary competition seriously after being criticised for his selection policy in the crucial defeat in Monaco in the Champions League.

But Spurs will fancy their chances against Gent, who booked their place in the knockout stage in dramatic fashion on matchday six.

Needing a victory to progress, Kalifa Coulibaly scored a 94th-minute winner against Turkish side Konyaspor as Braga were denied a round of 32 place.

Among the other standout ties, Villarreal take on Roma, while Borussia Monchengladbach drop into the Europa League and face Italian club Fiorentina.

The 2009 UEFA Cup winners Shakhtar Donetsk, who were the leading scorers in the group stage with 21 goals as they won all six of their games, face Celta Vigo in another match that will see one of the more stronger sides eliminated.

The first legs are scheduled for February 16, with the returns taking place on February 23. The Europa League final will be held at Stockholm’s Friends Arena on May 24.
