Luis Díaz: Sparta Prague, rival in the round of 16 of the Europa League – International Football – Sports

Two of the big favorites of the Europa League, Liverpool and Bayer Leverkusen, had favorable ‘a priori’ matchups in the round of 16 of the competition. Liverpool faced Czech Sparta Prague while Bayer Leverkusen faced Azerbaijani Qarabag.

The matchup between Liverpool and Sparta Prague seemed favorable to the British team on paper. However, the Czechs are sharp and brave, with a strong aerial game that could challenge Liverpool’s weaknesses in that area. Sparta Prague reached this stage after defeating Galatasaray with an aggregate score of 6-4. On the other hand, Liverpool topped their group in the group stage with 12 points.

In other matchups, Villarreal will face Marseille, the former team of Villarreal’s coach Marcelino. The quarterfinals of the competition will take place on April 11 and 18, followed by the semifinals on May 2 and 9, and the final on May 22 in Dublin.

The full list of matchups in the round of 16 includes Sparta Prague vs. Liverpool, Marseille vs. Villarreal, Roma vs. Brighton, Benfica vs. Rangers, Freiburg vs. West Ham, Sporting Portugal vs. Atalanta, Milan vs. Slavia Prague, and Qarabag vs. Bayer Leverkusen.
