Top games to watch in the UEFA Europa League round of 16?

Arsenal vs Sporting CP

Arsenal will host Sporting CP in the 2nd leg of their round of 16 showdown as the Premier League giants look to secure their ticket to the quarterfinals following that shaky display in Lisbon. The Gunners let in two goals — and could have conceded more — after a frustrating performance from Arteta's rotated back-four. However, the North London giants quickly corrected that in their following game, visiting Fulham over the weekend and beating their city rivals 3-0. Likewise, that match saw Gabriel Jesus and Leandro Trossard both return to the pitch, which means Mikel will have more firepower in his Arsenal for this encounter.

Sporting CP also enjoyed a 3-0 triumph over the weekend, beating Boavista straight after the two-all draw with the Gunners. The Lions could have come away from the 1st leg with a win had it not been for an unfortunate Hidemasa Morita own goal. And to make things worse, Ruben Amorim's men will be without a few key players, namely their captain Sebastian Coates who is suspended. Can the Portuguese giants beat the North London heavyweights at the Emirates Stadium nonetheless? Don't miss this clash.

Real Sociedad vs Roma

When Real Sociedad drew Roma for the round of 16, a tight affair was expected. However, following the first-leg result, the Spanish club now gear up to host the Italian heavyweights in need of a brilliant comeback. This is due to the 2-0 defeat they suffered in Roma, a result which is a mere continuation of their poor form lately, having failed to win their last five matches in a row.

Mourinho's men, meanwhile, have lost recently as well, going 4-3 down at home to Sassuolo over the weekend. Additionally, the Serie A outfit have lost three out of their last seven matches across all competitions. However, the Giallorossi boast a commanding lead thanks to first-leg goals from El Shaarawy and Kumbulla. 

Union Saint-Gilloise vs Union Berlin

Last week, we opted for Manchester United vs Real Betis as one of the must-watch games. However, with the Red Devils commanding a comfortable 4-1 lead, there isn't much left to play for bar an incomprehensible collapse from Ten Hag's side. With that in mind, Union Saint-Gilloise's showdown with Union Berlin made our list this time around.

These two sides played out a thrilling 3-3 draw in the first leg in Germany, with Sven Michel scoring an 89th-minute equalizer for the hosts to help the Bundesliga outfit avoid defeat. This means the Belgian club will have the advantage heading into the 2nd leg given the venue. However, it should be noted that these two clubs faced off in the group stage as well, with Union Berlin losing at home before beating the Belgian Pro League side on the road 1-0. Will we witness a repeat of this? Tune in to find out.
