AS Roma and Juventus have found out who they will face in the 2022/23 Europa League knockout round playoff whilst Lazio and Fiorentina now know who they will face in the Europa Conference League.
The Giallorossi finished second in their Europa League group which is why they must face a third-placed Champions League group side in a playoff before making it to the Europa League Round of 16 proper.
Juventus dropped into the Europa League after finishing third in their Champions League group.
Lazio came third in their Europa League group meaning they have dropped into the Conference League. Fiorentina were already in the Conference League and finished second in their group. The format here is the same as the Europa League, so the third-placed Europa League teams are up against the second-placed Conference League sides.
Who have Juventus got in the Europa League knockout round playoff?
Juventus will be very happy with how the draw panned out as they will be up against French side FC Nantes.
The Ligue 1 side came second in a group containing Freiburg, Qarabag FK and Olympiacos, so it will be a historic tie for the team that plays in yellow and green.
Who have AS Roma got in the Europa League knockout round playoff?
The draw could potentially be viewed as favourable for AS Roma too as they were drawn to face Austrian Bundesliga side RB Salzburg.
Salzburg came third in their Champions League group which contained Chelsea, AC Milan and Dinamo Zagreb. They had a chance of progression to the Round of 16 but could not beat Milan on the final day.
Who have Lazio got in the Europa Conference League knockout round playoff?
Lazio have been drawn to face Romanian side CFR Cluj, meaning they will have a pretty lengthy away trip to make for the first leg.
Cluj finished second in their group containing Sivasspor, Slavia Prague and Ballkani.
Who have Fiorentina got in the Europa Conference League knockout round playoff?
For Fiorentina, they will be up against Portuguese side SC Braga which is tougher than they would have liked from this draw.
Braga finished third in the group containing Union Saint-Gilloise, Union Berlin and Malmo FF.
