UEFA Europa League: Your Running Commentary


It's do-or-die for the two Manchester powerhouses.

Manchester United and Manchester City both face deficits heading into the second legs of their respective Europa League Round of 16 ties. Athletic Bilbao managed three goals in a 3-2 win at Old Trafford last week, putting the favored Red Devils in a corner as they head to Spain. City's hill is not as daunting, as they return home trailing Sporting Lisbon, 1-0.  

A few Americans have their European fates in the balance as well. Jozy Altidore's AZ Alkmaar holds a 2-0 edge over Udinese heading into their match in Italy; Steve Cherundolo's Hannover 96 nurses an away-goal edge after a 2-2 draw with Standard Liege in their first leg; and Jermaine Jones' Schalke needs to come up with a home comeback after dropping a 1-0 result to FC Twente.
