After a fantastic week for Scotland's two Europa League representatives, thoughts have already started to turn to the last 32 of the competition.

The knockout phase sees the 12 group winners plus the four third-placed Champions League teams with the best record given seeded status, while the runners-up in the Europa League and the other four Champions League side are unseeded.



Celtic assured their place in the knockout rounds with a stirring win over Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico, and Rangers gave themselves a great chance of qualifying with their rousing 2-0 victory over Porto at Ibrox.



Teams from the same group cannot face each other in the last 32, so Celtic cannot face Cluj or Lazio and Rangers cannot be drawn against Young Boys, Feyenoord or Porto.

Reaching the top 15 would give Scotland an extra Champions League place for the 2021-22 season, with the league runners-up entering at the first qualifying round and the Premiership winner in the second.

That would mean a tough draw for the last 32 with Europa League specialists Sevilla already guaranteed to be seeded.

Celtic and Rangers cannot play each other in the last 32 due to UEFA's country protection but the pair could be drawn together if they reach the last 16 when the tournament becomes an open draw.
