Bayer Leverkusen, Napoli and Lille are three such clubs who must overturn deficits in their second-leg fixtures if they’re to advance past Young Boys, Granada and Ajax, respectively.

PSV vs. Olympiacos (Agg. 2-4), 3 p.m. ET - Galavision

Manchester United are under no such pressure after they beat Real Sociedad 4-0 in Turin, easing the burden for the reverse matchup at Old Trafford.

Tottenham Hotspur also coasted to victory with a 4-1 first-leg foray against Austrian outfit Wolfsberger, resuming the round of 32 in a solitary Wednesday fixture to avoid clashing with London neighbors Arsenal:

The Gunners are all level with Benfica ahead of a climactic second leg at Emirates Stadium, while AC Milan conceded a last-minute equaliser against Crvena Zvezda to put their European future in doubt.

Leicester City, Hoffenheim, Rangers and AS Roma are among the other highly touted teams close to securing their places in the last 16, but plenty of drama awaits before the round of 32 concludes.

A first European title for Arsenal this season looks like their only realistic route back to the UEFA Champions League next term, with the club currently 11th in England’s top flight and 11 points off the top four.

Drawing 1-1 in Lisbon last week provided a solid foundation for their reverse matchup at the Emirates, the importance of which was not lost on manager Mikel Arteta after his side lost 1-0 at home to Manchester City on Sunday:

The Gunners can’t afford to hold back on resources in their bid to keep the Europa League dream alive, and the threat of exiting is real against a Benfica team unbeaten in six. Moreover, the Eagles boast the competition’s outright top scorer this season in Pizzi (seven goals), whose 55th-minute penalty gave them a short-lived lead at the Stadio Olimpico last week.

Manchester United’s first-leg matchup was also moved to neutral territory in Turin, and it was they who responded better to the transition than Real Sociedad, who conceded four for the first time since March 2019 (a 5-2 loss at Sevilla):

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers also put four on the board in their trip to Antwerp, though the result was far from as comfortable considering they trailed their hosts 3-2 in the 82nd minute. Substitute Ryan Kent equalised before Borna Barisic converted his second penalty in the final minute to put Rangers in the driving seat, though Gerrard acknowledged a 4-3 advantage means nothing is assured:

There was more late drama at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy where Ajax, having gone goalless for the first 86 minutes, scored twice in the closing phases to edge Lille 2-1 away from home. Replacement Brian Brobbey secured a crucial second goal away from home to scythe Ajax in front not long after Timothy Weah scored the opener for Lille, who now have a wall to break down in Amsterdam:

They weren’t the only frontrunner for the Europa League crown to suffer due to late heroics. Crvena Zvezda played the final 15 minutes of their clash against AC Milan with 10 men, but that didn’t prevent the appropriately named Milan Pavkov from looping in a last-gasp equaliser deep in injury time:

The Rossoneri return to the San Siro under much tetchier circumstances as a result and are now three games without a win after losing 3-0 to rivals Inter in the Milan derby on Sunday. Stefano Pioli’s side led Serie A for much of the season but now sit four points off the summit, their European fate all the more important as they seek to end a seven-year Champions League hiatus.
