Europa League's round of 32 will feature a mouthwatering clash between France's Saint-Etienne and Premier League giants Manchester United, the side all other teams were hoping to avoid.

The tie will see United and France midfielder Paul Pogba, the world's most expensive player, come up against his elder brother Florentin, the Guinea international defender.

The teams met in the now defunct Cup Winners' Cup in 1977, with United winning 3-1 on aggregate.

In the other standout fixtures unveiled on Monday, Italian clubs Roma and Fiorentina will face off with Spain's Villareal and Germany's Borussia Moenchengladbach, respectively.

The other Premier League representative, Tottenham Hotspur, will face Gent of Belgium after being eliminated from the Champions League.

The first legs will be played on Thursday, February 16, with the return matches a week later.
