Europa League: Here Are The Teams That Have Qualified For Round Of 32

Published

Bayer Leverkusen, FC Zurich, Eintracht Frankfurt, Lazio and Chelsea are some of the teams that have qualified for the next stage of the Europa League.

In the penultimate group games played on Thursday, FC Salzburg won the Red Bull derby against Leipzig 1-0 to reach the knockout stages.

They were joined in the last 32 by Zenit St Petersburg and Sporting.

The Austrian champions, who reached last season’s semi-finals, sealed first place in Group B after Fredrik Gulbrandsen grabbed the winner in the 74th minute to ensure their progress.

Zenit secured top spot in Group C after Robert Mak’s second-half strike gave the Russians a 1-0 home win over FC Copenhagen.

Sporting thrashed Qarabag 6-1 in Azerbaijan to progress behind already-qualified Group E winners Arsenal, who beat Vorskla Poltava 3-0 in their relocated clash in Kiev.

Fenerbahce and Real Betis also made it through to the next stage after the day’s early batch of fixtures.

The Turkish side drew 0-0 at home to already-qualified Dinamo Zagreb in Group D.

But it was enough to see them through along with Betis who beat Olympiakos Piraeus 1-0 in Group F.

Russians Krasnodar qualified from Group J after coming from behind to beat Akhisar 2-1.

Dinamo Kiev won Group K after a solitary Benjamin Verbic strike secured a 1-0 win at Astana, while Scott Sinclair’s header gave Celtic victory at Rosenborg.

With Leipzig having lost, the Scottish champions need a draw at home Salzburg in their final Group B match to guarantee progress as they sit three points ahead of the Germans.

The final group games come up in two weeks time.
