Man United Avoid Wolves, Draw Lask in Europa League Round of 16



Manchester United took care of business, in a big way, by routing Club Brugge last night and thus booked their place in the UEFA Europa League round of 16. Arsenal fell to Olympiacos on away goal tie-breaker differential, so United are definitely the undisputed favorite in the tournament now.

Wolverhampton Wanderers, a real thorn in the side of the Red Devils lately, join United as English clubs still alive in the competition. If they meet, it won’t be until a later round though as United have drawn LASK and Wolves will face Olympiacos. Full draw is below
