News on dates, venues, times and potential fixture changes following United's progression in the Europa League

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

Thursday night's 1-0 win at Metalist Kharkiv, coupled with a 4-2 aggregate win for Anzhi Makhachkala over 96, means Newcastle will face the Russians over two legs in the Europa League's round of 16.

United will be away from home in the first leg, which will take place on Thursday, 7th March. The venue will be confirmed on Friday but current information is that the match will take place at the Luzhniki Stadium, home of Spartak Moscow, with a kick-off of 5pm GMT.

A week later, on Thursday, 14th March, St. James' Park will host the second leg. The kick-off time is 8.05pm GMT.

As a result of the Magpies' progression in the competition, the Club will be requesting that the Barclays Premier League fixture at home to Stoke City, currently scheduled for Saturday, 9th March, be moved to Sunday, 10th March but confirmation is awaited.

The home game against Wigan following the second leg is already scheduled for Sunday, 17th March so no amendment will be necessary.

The full draw for the Europa League round of 16 is:

FC Viktoria Plzeň v Fenerbahçe SK
SL Benfica v FC Girondins de Bordeaux
FC Anzhi Makhachkala v Newcastle United
VfB Stuttgart v S.S. Lazio
Tottenham Hotspur v FC Internazionale Milano
Levante UD v FC Rubin Kazan
