Europa League: United handed St-Etienne tie

Manchester United will take on St-Etienne in the last 32 of the Europa League, while Tottenham will face Gent following Monday’s draw in Nyon.

The draw for United means a potential meeting of the Pogba brothers, with United’s Paul set to go head-to-head with older sibling Florentin, a defender who plays for the French outfit.

A number of mouthwatering ties lay in wait in the Round of 32, including the two-legged clash between Villarreal and AS Roma.

Elsewhere, Borussia Mönchengladbach take on Fiorentina, Schalke 04 do battle with Greek side PAOK, and Anderlecht lock horns with Zenit Saint Petersburg.

Sevilla won the Europa League last season after seeing off the challenge of Liverpool at St. Jakob-Park, in Basel.

However, neither side will be involved in the Round of 32, as Sevilla are taking part in the last 16 of the Champions League, while Liverpool missed out this season after finishing eighth in the English Premier League last season.

The ties will take place on February 16 and 23.
