NYON, Switzerland (AP) — Tottenham will face Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in the last 32 of the Europa League without the coach who led the team to an unbeaten record in the group stage.
Tottenham was drawn against the Ukrainian side on Monday, an hour after Andre Villas-Boas was fired as manager following a 5-0 loss to Liverpool in the Premier League. Dnipro is coached by Juande Ramos, who was also fired by Tottenham, in 2008.
After its controversial Champions League exit in Turkey, Juventus will again travel there for the second leg against Trabzonspor.
Juve dropped down to the Europa League after losing 1-0 to Galatasaray in atrocious weather and pitch conditions in a match that was suspended and later completed almost 18 hours after it kicked off. The loss left the Italian side last in in its Champions League group.
"I'm not very happy about going back to Turkey, it didn't go well for us recently," Juve director Pavel Nedved said. "It will be a long and hard trip. We will have to find the right motivation to approach the game as Juventus should."
