Dinamo Zagreb were eliminated by Sevilla in the previous round as RB Leipzig asserted their dominance over Real Sociedad with a 5-3 aggregate.

While everyone expected the clash between Napoli and Barcelona to be a close one just like the first leg of the previous round, the Italian giants were left in the dirt by the Spaniards as they crushed the opposition with a 4-2 victory in the second while leg away from home. Braga and Sheriff were balanced in every way and had to settle their case on penalty shootouts, in which Braga emerged victorious 3-2.

Borussia Dortmund

were already blasted away by Rangers in the first leg of the RO16 playoffs, which is why even scoring two goals away from home could not stop the Scottish side from going through to the next round on a 6-4 aggregate.

Porto v Lyon

  • Date: Wednesday, 9 March

  • Time: 18:45 CET

  • Venue: Estadio do Dragao

Two of the best teams in the Portuguese and French leagues are going head to head tonight at the Estadio do Dragao for a chance to go through to the next stage of the tournament.

Olympique Lyon

are visiting

FC Porto

in Portugal and they are more than ready to face their opponents in the Round of 16. Porto came out on top in the playoffs as they beat Lazio on penalties and now they are ready to showcase their strength against Lyon.

This will be their fifth meeting in a European competition and the stats indicate that all odds are in Porto’s favor, if the history between the two sides is anything to take serious. Lyon have never managed to beat their Portuguese rivals in a European tournament, with the previous four meetings ending in a draw and three victories in Porto’s favor.

Of course a long time has passed since the last time they met, with their previous clash dating back to the 2003-04 Champions League quarter-finals, during which the Dragoes went past the Ligue 1 side to eventually lift the trophy in the end. All eyes will be on Galeno and Mehdi Taremi, both of whom have been on fire lately. Galeno is the joint-top scorer in the UEL this campaign with six goals throughout the competition.

The Iranian striker has also proven to be one of the most lethal strikers in Europe’s top-5 leagues, which is why he could be a vital asset for Sergio Conceicao. The Portuguese side are currently the league leaders in the Portuguese top-flight, while Lyon are roaming the middle of the Ligue 1 table with 41 points in 27 league games. People are surely eager to find out more about the Europa League 2022 Round of 16 live stream news as both sides are more than capable of lifting the UEL trophy at the end of the season.

  • Time: 18:45 CET

  • Venue: Benito Villamarin

Next up in the competition is the clash between Real Betis and

Eintracht Frankfurt

. The Spaniards narrowly passed Zenit in the previous round and have proven to be one of the more effective sides in La Liga with their consistency. Many are certainly excited to follow the news on

Europa League 2021-22 Round of 16 fixtures and live stream

, since both sides are usually considered to be the underdogs in their respective leagues, yet here in the UEL, both are considered to be one of the favorites to lift the trophy at the end of the season.

Both sides are quite inexperienced in facing each other as this will be the very first time that they are going to meet in a European competition. Even though Frankfurt have not faced

Real Betis

in the tournament’s history so far, they do have a great track record against Spanish teams, which is because they have won two of their three games against teams from Spain, while drawing the remaining game.

  • Date: Thursday, 10 March

  • Time: 18:45 CET

  • Venue: Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

Real Betis

are not the only Spanish side in the Europa League and there are a couple more Spanish clubs in the competition as well. One of these sides is Julen Lopetegui’s Sevilla, who have been relentlessly chasing Real Madrid in La Liga. While Sevilla are trying their best to reach Los Blancos in the league, West Ham have been a surprise in the Premier League themselves. They are currently fighting for a place in next season’s Champions League.

Both David Moyes and Lopetegui have exceeded everyone’s expectations this season and we are certainly going to witness some great moments in this match. Sevilla are quite experienced in playing against English sides in a European competition as they have met with ten different English clubs throughout the years and West Ham will be the eleventh English club on the list. While Sevilla know exactly how English teams play football, West Ham players might not have that much of an idea as the last time they faced a Spanish club dates back to the 1980-81 season.

Barcelona v Galatasaray

  • Date: Thursday, 10 March

  • Time: 21:00 CET

  • Venue: Camp Nou

Turkish side Galatasaray have perhaps drawn one of the worst rivals they could draw in the competition this season. While

Barcelona

were struggling to find their form early on in the season, they seem to have been revitalized thanks to Xavi’s tactics and transfer policy. Having signed the likes of Ferran Torres, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Adama Traore from Premier League sides, the Blaugranas have breathed a fresh breath of air and seem to be back in form once again. That is why Galatasaray should be very careful while visiting Barca away from home at Camp Nou.

The two sides have faced each other eight times in Europe before this match, with Barca being the clear victors most of the times. They have won five of these games, while drawing two matches and losing once throughout the years. It will be quite difficult for the underdogs to break the curse of not winning at Camp Nou, but no one says it is impossible for us to watch a masterclass from the Turkish side.

While the Catalan giants have managed to turn the tides in their favor since the winter transfer window, the Lions have failed to do so as they are currently 12th in the league with 35 points in 28 games. Both Barcelona and

Galatasaray

fans are quite enthusiastic about their respective clubs, which is why all of them will be eager to get notified on the news about the Europa League 2021-22 Round of 16 fixtures and live stream.

Surely many neutrals are also excited to catch this game online or on TV. According to the latest news on

UEL 2022 fixtures and live stream

Rangers v Crvena Zvezda

  • Date: Thursday, 10 March

  • Time: 21:00 CET

  • Venue: Ibrox Stadium

Rangers

have been the surprise of the season as they just recently managed to eliminate Borussia Dortmund, one of the favorites to win the Europa League, out of the competition. Their victory over the German side did not come in a 1-0 victory though, as the Scottish side managed to assert their dominance over Dortmund with a massive 4-2 win over their rivals in the first leg of the previous round.

A 2-2 draw in the return leg was more than enough to secure Rangers’ position in the Round of 16. On the other side of the pitch stand Cvena Zvezda, who topped their group stage and managed to rightfully earn their place in the knockout stages of the tournament. It certainly isn’t Rangers’ first time facing Crvena Zvezda, since the two sides have already met seven times so far and this stage will have them meet for the eighth and ninth time.

All eyes will be on Alfredo Morelos, who has already scored 6 goals in Europe for the Scottish Premiership side in Europe this season. He only needs one more goal to surpass James Forrest’s seasonal record, which dates back to the 1964-65 season. If you too are eager to catch this intense game and are following the news on

Europa League 2022 Round of 16 live stream

, then the information mentioned here is just the thing you need.

  • Venue: Estadio Municipal de Braga

Next up we have the clash between

Braga

and AS

Monaco

, which will have the two teams meet for the first time. Even though it is SC Braga’s first time hosting Monaco, they are quite experienced in facing French teams, since they have met Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique Marseille in European competitions.

  • Venue: Atleti Azzurri d’Italia

One of the best teams in Germany and a possible title contender this season will be visiting one of the top teams in the Italian Serie A for a chance to qualify for the next stage of the Europa League.

Atalanta

will be hosting

Bayer Leverkusen

in the first leg of the round at the Atleti Azzurri d’Italia stadium, while knowing nothing about their rivals.
