Europa League Round of 16 schedule, results, matches and teams after draw

Press Room

The 2022 Europa League Round of 16 is set after the draw held on Feb. 25 paired up the eight group winners with the eight teams that emerged from the special Europa League playoff round.

The Round of 16 slate is highlighted by two favorites going head-to-head: Premier League side West Ham takes on six-time Europa League winners Sevilla, who are dreaming of playing the tournament final at home given the venue selected was Sevilla’s Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.

Barcelona vs. Galatasaray, Atalanta vs. Bayer Leverkusen and Porto vs. Lyon are some of the other standout matchups. The eight Europa League group-stage winners will get to play the second leg of their Round of 16 series at home. Due to UEFA’s decision to ban Russian clubs from its competitions, RB Leipzig was granted direct passage to the quarterfinals.

The Round of 16, as with the subsequent rounds (quarterfinals and semifinals), will be played over two legs with the team that scores the most goals over both matches advancing to the next round. The final is a single-elimination match.

The only difference in the Europa League knockout stages this year is that there is no away goals tiebreaker in the case teams are even on aggregate goals scored at the end of the second match. UEFA abolished the away-goals rule in June 2021. Extra time and, if necessary, a penalty-kick shootout will determine the winner in case teams are level on goals after 180 minutes. Extra time and penalties are also the tiebreaker in the final.

How did the Europa League draw work?

The Europa League group winners were seeded. They were drawn against the winners of the special playoff round, which featured the runners-up of the Europa League group stage taking on the teams that finished third in the Champions League group stage.

It’s also worth remembering that clubs from the same country could not be drawn against each other in the Round of 16. That restriction is removed from the quarterfinals onward.

Teams in the Europa League Round of 16 draw

The eight seeded teams — the group winners — were on one side of the draw:

  • Red Star Belgrade (Serbia)
  • Eintracht Frankfurt (Germany)
  • Galatasaray (Turkey)
  • Bayer Leverkusen (Germany)
  • Lyon (France)
  • AS Monaco (France)
  • Spartak Moscow (Russia) (Why Russian clubs expelled)
  • West Ham (England)

They were paired against the survivors of the eight knockout round playoff series between the third-place teams from the Champions League group stage and the second-place teams from the Europa League group stage:

  • Sevilla (Spain): 3-2 on aggregate vs. Dinamo Zagreb
  • Atalanta (Italy): 5-1 on aggregate vs. Olympiacos
  • RB Leipzig (Germany): 5-3 on aggregate vs. Real Sociedad
  • Porto (Portugal): 4-3 on aggregate vs. Lazio
  • Barcelona (Spain): 5-3 on aggregate vs. Napoli
  • Real Betis (Spain): 3-2 on aggregate vs. Zenit
  • Rangers (Scotland): 6-4 on aggregate vs. Borussia Dortmund
  • Sporting Braga (Portugal): 2-2 on aggregate (3-2 PKs) vs. Sheriff Tiraspol

When is the Europa League Round of 16 played?

The Round of 16 will begin on March 9-10, with the second leg matches taking place the following week, on March 17. Two of the first leg matches will be held on Wednesday, March 9 to avoid clashes with teams also hosting matches in the same geographic vicinity.

The eight Europa League group-stage winners will get to play the second leg of their Round of 16 series at home since it’s perceived to be an advantage.

Hosting the second leg provides a slight edge: If the series is tied on aggregate goals after the second leg, there would be a decisive extra-time session and potential penalty-kick shootout which would be held on home turf for the group winners.
