ALL SPANISH LAST 16
Athletic Bilbao has been drawn up against familiar foe Atletico Madrid in the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League.
The encounter sees a repeat of the 2012 Europa League final in which a certain Radamel Falcao led Atletico Madrid to a 3–0 win in Romania.
The two sides last met a month ago in La Liga when ‘Los Merengues’ cruised to a 4-2 home win but currently find themselves 5 points behind their opponents in 5th place.
Atletico Madrid overcome Roma with two narrow wins in the Last 32 whereas Bilbao relied on a storming 2nd leg performance to overcome a 1 goal deficit by Wolfsburg.
The two sides will play on 11th of March before facing each other again a week later for the 2nd leg at the Vicente Calderon stadium.
