UEFA Europa League playoffs 2022

UEFA Europa League knockout stages also begin in February with 24 teams still in the hunt for Europe's second most important prize.

But unlike the Champions League, which is already underway with its Round of 16, the Europa League has a format tweak in 2021-22. 

Before we get to the Europa League Round of 16, there is a new knockout playoff round that will determine the final eight teams to qualify for the Round of 16. 

These 'knockout playoffs' will feature the eight teams that finished as runners-up during the group stage

they will face the eight teams that dropped in from the Champions League after finishing in third place in that tournament's group stage.
