Draw Bridges

Seven Americans will soon continue their quest for glory in UEFA's two consolation cup tournaments, and on Friday they learned which clubs will stand in their way in the Europa League and Europa Conference League rounds of 16. As it turned out, none of them will face each other at this juncture. And thus, we can root for them all to safely reach the quarters, which kick off on March 9th for the former and the next night for the latter.
