The draw for the Europa League round of 32 took place today

Man United were condemned to Europe’s secondary competition after falling to a 3-2 defeat to RB Leipzig in the Champions League last week.

Sociedad are currently top of LaLiga – albeit having played two games more than second-place Atletico Madrid – and have lost just twice in all competitions this season.

Arsenal – in the midst of a full-blown crisis in the Premier League – will play Portuguese giants Benfica.

Tottenham have been drawn against Austrian outfit Wolfsberger.

Leicester, meanwhile, will face Slavia Prague of Czech Republic.
