Round of 16 Matchups for the UEFA Europa League

The UEFA Europa League round of 16 matchups are known after today's games. Ties are to be played on March 7th and March 14th.

Here are the matchups:

FC Viktoria Plzen v Fenerbahçe SK
SL Benfica v FC Girondins de Bordeaux
FC Anji Makhachkala v Newcastle United FC
VfB Stuttgart v S.S. Lazio
Tottenham Hotspur FC v FC Internazionale Milano
Levante UD v FC Rubin Kazan
FC Basel 1893 v FC Zenit St Petersburg

There will be a new UEFA Europa League champion this year as FC Rubin Kazan have eliminated last year's number one Atletico Madrid.

There are three Russian teams, three English teams and two Italian teams still in contention for the title.

The round of 16 matchup that stands out the most is Tottenham Hotspur vs. Internazionale Milano. Tottenham are 4th in the English Premier League at the moment and they eliminated Lyon 3-2 on aggregate in the Europa League while Inter are 5th in the Serie A at the moment and they easily rolled by CFR Cluj beating them 5-0 on aggregate.

Looking forward to March 7th and the round of 16 of the Europa League.
