The Europa League knockout round draw is nearly here, as the final group stage games determine who will progress to the latter stages of the tournament. 

Arsenal and Manchester United have booked their places in the draw already, but where they finish in the group could have a huge bearing on which draw they'll enter into. 

This is because teams who finish top of their groups will progress automatically to the last-16, while those who come in second place will face a play-off against one of the eight sides that finished third in the Champions League group stages.
