Europa League Draw: City face holders Porto, United get Ajax

The draw for the last-32 of the Europa League has tied Manchester City with last year's winners FC Porto while Manchester United will play Dutch club Ajax Amsterdam.

Porto, who won the treble under Andre Villas-Boas last season, are back in the competition after they failed to get past APOEL or Zenit in the Champions League group stages. With star striker Hulk attracting attention from big-spending City, manager Roberto Mancini will get a chance to view the Brazilian up close as he travels to Portugal for the first leg.

Update:

Lazio v Atlético Madrid
Stoke City v Valencia
Ajax v Manchester United
FC Porto v Manchester City

I'm glad we got someone decent. Didn't want to play some obscure team. Erikson will get to see what Old Trafford is like as well.

Citys not on Thursdays :p. Thanks to a rule that says 2 teams cannot play in the same city on the same day. City matches will be played on Tues/Wed meaning no more Sunday prem matches as long as we in Europa BONUS.
