In Group F, Europa League winners Villarreal face Manchester United, who lost out in the 2020/21 season final. Atalanta Bergamo and Young Boys Bern also want to grab their chances in the round of 16.


In Group G, VfL Wolfsburg did well: With Lille, Sevilla FC and RB Salzburg, the round of the last 16 is not a utopia.
