Manchester United suffered a 2-1 loss at the hands of visitors Ajax in the second leg of the UEFA Europa League last-32 tie, however, a 2-0 win last week in Amsterdam ensured the Red Devils' progression.
Manchester United narrowly progressed to the UEFA Europa League last 16 with a 3-2 aggregate win over Ajax, while three La Liga sides in Valencia, Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid also booked their place.
Ajax centre-back Toby Alderweireld has been ruled out for between two and four weeks with a hamstring strain, adding to an injury list that already includes Andre Ooijer, Kolbeinn Sigthorsson and Derk Boerrigter.
