Manchester United to face Aussie James Holland's Lask Linz in Europa last 16


Australian midfielder James Holland will be set for one of the biggest matches of his career after his LASK Linz side was drawn against Manchester United in the Europa League round of 16.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, who thrashed Club Brugge 6-1 on aggregate in the last 32, will travel to Austria for the first leg before hosting the Bundesliga leaders.

In terms of UEFA coefficient, the tie will pit the lowest-ranked side left in the competition against the highest-ranked side.


Antonio Conte's Inter face a tough task in the form of Getafe, who knocked out Ajax in the previous round, while Olympiacos - fresh from defeating Arsenal in extra time - tackle another English side in Wolves.

Steven Gerrard's Rangers will take on Bayer Leverkusen, and five-time winners Sevilla play Roma.

Holland is one of two Australian players left in the Europa League alongside Aziz Behich who is out of favour at Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir.  

The matches will be played across March 13 and March 20 (AEDT).
