Forget about the Champions’ League, there’s only one draw that matters today. The big one with Fulham in it! Still feels good to say that, doesn’t it?
The UEFA website has all the details with a cool table that doesn’t format properly on this site so here are the confirmed teams involved:
Olympique de Marseille*
LOSE Lille Metropole
Hertha BSC Berlin
*Team transferring from UEFA Champions League
+ Fulham can’t be drawn against AS Roma having played them in the group stage.
Teams in Pot 2 will be at home in the first leg. First legs will be played on 18 February and the second legs on 25 February.
The second knockout round draw will take place immediately afterwards. There are no restrictions on this draw, so Fulham – if they get through the first tie – could feasibly meet Liverpool or Everton at this stage.
The draw will be screened live on Sky Sports News, ESPN and the UEFA website from 12 noon.
