Anderlecht v Manchester United

United have a little history with Anderlecht – the sides have met six times in European competition, with United winning four and losing two. Their last meeting, in October 2000, saw the Brussels club win 2-1 – a result that helped them pip their opponents to top spot in their Champions League group. A more positive omen for United is that their record win in any competition came against Anderlecht– a 10-0 triumph way back in the 1956 European Cup.

Celta Vigo v Genk

Celta, the only hope for Spain to continue their recent dominance of this competition, face Genk.

Ajax v Schalke

Two former winners of the UEFA Cup – Ajax in 1992, Schalke in 1997 – are drawn together.

Lyon v Besiktas

A tricky round trip for Lyon, second favourites for the trophy behind United.
