U19s to face Manchester United in UEFA Youth League last 16

Liverpool U19s have been drawn to face Manchester United in the last 16 of the UEFA Youth League.

The young Reds qualified for the knockout stages by topping Group E with five wins from their six fixtures against Maribor, Sevilla and Spartak Moscow.

Friday’s draw set up a home meeting with United for Steven Gerrard’s team, to be played as a one-off tie on either Tuesday February 20 or Wednesday February 21.

The winners will progress to a quarter-final clash away from home against either Manchester City or Inter Milan in mid-March.
