AS Roma and Juventus have found out who they will be facing in the round of 16 of the Europa League after making their way through the knockout round playoff ties. Lazio and Fiorentina also now know who they will play in the last 16 of the Europa Conference League.
The Giallorossi turned things around on Thursday night as they beat Red Bull Salzburg 2-0 at the Stadio Olimpico to overturn the 1-0 defeat from the first leg in Austria.
Juventus had a job to do as well in their second leg against French side Nantes after a 1-1 draw at the Allianz Stadium. Thankfully for them, an Angel Di Maria hat-trick and a red card for Nantes meant it was light work in Brittany and the Bianconeri won the game 3-0.
Lazio narrowly overcame CFR Cluj 1-0 on aggregate in the knockout round play-off and Fiorentina impressively beat Braga 7-2 on aggregate.
The first legs will be played on March 9 with the return legs a week later on March 16.
Who have AS Roma got in the Europa League round of 16?
AS Roma had to wait until the latter stages of the draw but they will be up against Real Sociedad who topped the group containing Manchester United.
It is a winnable tie for Roma but much like Juventus, they must not underestimate the opponent. La Real are third in LaLiga and will be confident.
Who have Juventus got in the Europa League round of 16?
Juventus were drawn to face SC Freiburg who are in the mix of a wide-open title race in the Bundesliga.
It is a draw that the Bianconeri will be happy with but their opponent is certainly not to be underestimated. Freiburg are fourth in the Bundesliga and are just three points behind Bayern Munich.
Who have Lazio got in the Europa Conference League round of 16?
Lazio will be playing their first leg at home on Tuesday, March 7, in order not to clash with AS Roma playing at home on the Thursday night.
The Biancocelesti were drawn to play against Dutch side AZ Alkmaar who are currently third in the Eredivisie.
Who have Fiorentina got in the Europa Conference League round of 16?
Fiorentina will be happy with the draw as they come up against Turkish side Sivasspor who are currently down in 12th in the Turkish Super Lig.
It has been a bad Serie A campaign for Fiorentina but they are in the Coppa Italia semi-final and they will back themselves to get to the quarter-final of the Conference League.
