When the Europa League round of 16 ends, at least one Portuguese coach will be less involved in the competition. This is because the Roma had to compete against each other in the draw, led by Paulo Fonseca and Shakhtar Donetsk from Luís Castro.
The Romans, who eliminated Sp. Braga, face another Portuguese coach after Carlos Carvalhal. And there is also Paulo Fonseca’s curiosity to find a team that has already trained, Shakhtar.

Arsenal, who have ruled out Benfica, will now face Olympiacos at Pedro Martins’ behest, while Tottenham will face Croatian Dinamo Zagreb under José Mourinho’s leadership.
The biggest game of the round, however, will be Manchester United-AC Milan. Bruno Fernandes wants to reach the quarter-finals and maybe try to repeat the status of the top scorer of the competition that he achieved in the previous edition.
