Liverpool and Manchester Untied would be 'awkward' says the Belgian defender.
Liverpool made hard work of a 1-0 win over FC Augsburg whilst Manchester United finally remembered how to play with freedom in the second leg against FC Midtjylland - thrashing their Danish opponents 6-3 on aggregate.
But it was Tottenham who were by far the most impressive of the bunch. After holding out for a score draw in Italy against Fiorentina they then punished the Italian high-flyers in London.
A 3-0 win was not flattering at White Hart Lane - with Ryan Mason, Erik Lamela and a Gonzalo Rodriguez own goal doing the damage.
They managed that result without several key players. Harry Kane and Mousa Dembele were ruled out through injury whilst Jan Vertonghen remains on the sidelines.
The Belgian international has been out of action since damaging knee ligaments against Crystal Palace a month ago and Austrian international Kevin Wimmer has stepped up in his absence.
This morning he has been tweeting about the Europa League draw coming up this afternoon and admitted two teams he would, preferably, like to avoid - United and Liverpool:
Great performance by the lads yesterday! Looking forward to the draw now! Who do we want?? #UELdraw— Jan Vertonghen (@JanVertonghen) February 26, 2016
Not really, but it would be a bit awkward to play an English side in Europe... https://t.co/z3jNIVZ2Bf— Jan Vertonghen (@JanVertonghen) February 26, 2016
Whoever they do face will know they are in for a battle against one of the in form teams in Europe.
