The draw for the Europa league last 16 in the has thrown up some mouthwatering ties with the pick of the bunch being Manchester United’s clash with AC Milan which will see Zlatan Ibrahimovic make his return to Old Trafford.
Rangers were handed a brilliant opportunity to make it to the quarter-finals as they avoided the big guns remaining in the competition and will face Slavia Prague, who stunned Leicester at the King Power last night.
Steven Gerrad’s men have the advanatge of being away from home first and Bet365 make the Gers 7/10 to qualify from the tie.
Tottenham’s opponents Dinamo Zagreb have an abysmal record against English sides, losing nine of the last ten. Jose Mourinho’s side are just 1/7 to qualify and odds on to win the first leg in Croatia.
Arsenal’s reward for a hard fought win over Benfica is the chance to exact some revenge on Olympiakos who knocked them out of the competition last season. The Gunners are 2/9 to progress.
Elsewhere in the draw, four-time European champions Ajax will play Young Boys who were surprise winners over Bayer Leverkusen in the previous round. Already 4-3 up from the first leg the Swiss side won 2-0 in Germany to book their place in the last 16.
With two of the competition’s favourites drawn against each other, Spurs are now joint-top of the outright betting alongside Manchester United following their favourable draw. Each of the English contenders can be backed at 7/2.
Milan have drifted in the market to 8/1 while Arsenal have been clipped to 7s.
Rangers are as short as 16/1 with the bookies obviously facing their chances of make it to the last eight. Ajax can be backed at 9/1 and Roma and Villarreal are available at 10/1.
Rank outsiders are Norwegian side Molde at 200/1 who won 2-0 at Hoffenheim to book their place in the draw despite the fact their new season is over month away from kicking-off.
