The draw for the Europa League quarter-finals has been confirmed, with Manchester United to visit Belgium.

The Red Devils will face Belgian powerhouse RSC Anderlecht, and will host the first leg at Old Trafford first.

United managed to avoid Ajax and FC Schalke as well as a potential trip to Turkey to face Besiktas and in-form French team Lyon.

Meanwhile, Socceroos goalkeeper Mat Ryan will return to spain with loan side KRC Genk, who have been pitted against Celta Vigo.

Genk will play their home leg of the tie second.

Elsewhere, two ties with glamorous names have been set in stone.

Fresh off their win over AS Roma, Lyon will be tasked with an unnerving trip to Istanbul to face Besiktas, who easily overcame Olympiacos last round.

Ajax have been handed the tricky task of FC Schalke, who defeated fellow Bundesliga club Borussia Monchengladbach in the round of 16.
