Bayer 04 Leverkusen are the only team in the Europa League to have swept through the group stage with six wins, meaning they have had their ticket to the round of 16 in the bag since the end of last year. On Thursday evening, SC Freiburg also secured one of the last remaining round of 16 tickets in the knockout play-offs thanks to a dramatic 3:2 win against Lens. The pairings for the next round will be drawn just one day later.
