Ajax have drawn English club Aston Villa, currently fourth in the Premier division, in the round of 16 of the Conference League.

The Amsterdammers qualified for the knock-out phase after beating Norway’s Bodø Glimt 1-2 in extra time on Thursday evening.

The first leg will take place at home on March 7 with the return leg in England a week later.

There are just two Dutch clubs left in Europe – Ajax in the third-tier competition and PSV, who meet Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League competition next month.
