The Europa League round of 16 is set to conclude today with eight matches on the cards.
AC Milan hosting Manchester United is arguably the biggest match of the day, with both sides tied at 1-1 from the first leg played last week.
The competition’s battle for the top scorer is set to get even more exciting, with both LOSC’s Yusuf Yazıcı and Benfica’s Pizzi, who lead the standings on seven goals already eliminated.
The race is now wide open, with Tottenham’s Carlos Vinícius, Roma’s Borja Mayoral, and Villarreal’s Paco Alcácer the top-ranked players still in the competition.
