Europa League draw: West Ham land Sevilla, Rangers face Red Star in last 16 | Europa League


West Ham will take on the Spanish side Sevilla in the last 16 of the Europa League.

The Premier League club won Group H and so were among the seeded teams for Friday’s draw in Nyon, Switzerland. The first leg is set for 10 March in Seville – which will also host the Europa League final at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium – with the return on 17 March.

Sevilla have won the competition six times and came through their knockout play-off tie against Dinamo Zagreb 3-2 on aggregate, despite losing 1-0 in Croatia on Thursday.

Rangers’ reward for knocking out Borussia Dortmund is a last-16 tie against Red Star Belgrade. Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men saw off the competition favourites with a 6-4 aggregate victory, drawing the second leg 2-2 after a memorable win in Germany.

The first leg against the Serbian club, one of the seeds after finishing top of Group F, will be at Ibrox on 10 March, with the return a week later.

Elsewhere in the draw, Barcelona, who beat Napoli in the play-offs, take on the Turkish side Galatasaray. RB Leipzig face Spartak Moscow, who will have to play their home tie at a neutral venue after the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Braga play Monaco, Porto take on Lyon, Atalanta meet Bayer Leverkusen and Real Betis are up against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Meanwhile, Leicester will play Rennes in the last 16 of the Europa Conference League after a 7-2 aggregate victory in their play-off against Randers. The first leg will be on 10 March at the King Power Stadium, with the return in France a week later.
