PSV Eindhoven and Ajax are both out of European football following Thursday night’s intermediary round in the Europa League.

PSV beat Seville 2-0 but it was not enough to overturn last week’s 3-0 loss in southern Spain. Ajax lost 3-1 to Union Berlin, after a goalless home draw in the first leg of their qualification tie. Watch the highlights.

Later on Friday, Feyenoord and AZ will find out who their opponents are in next stage of the Europa League and the Conference League. Feyenoord, as group winner, is taking part in the two-leg round of 16 in the Europa League while AZ, which also won its group, is in the last 16 of the Conference League.

Those matches take place on March 9 and 16. Both Feyenoord and AZ start with an away game.
