There are no fewer than 15 games taking place tonight in the Europa League, with Manchester United and Stoke City both in action.

The remaining second leg games of the Europa League last-32 stage take place later today with Man Utd looking to advance to the last-16 after rivals Manchester City advanced on Wednesday night with a 4-0 win at home to holders Porto that saw them progress 6-1 on aggregate.

United play host to Ajax at Old Trafford and although they are without striker Wayne Rooney, who has been ruled out with a throat infection, they have a 2-0 lead from last week's first leg in Amsterdam and will be confident of making it through to the last-16.

Stoke have a tougher test ahead of them. Trailing 1-0 from last week's first-leg, the Potters travel to Spain to take on Valencia knowing that they will have to score at least twice tonight to advance.
