Arsenal, Chelsea and Celtic have qualified for the last 32 of the Europa League, but who could they face? And will they play each other?
The Premier League pair were unbeaten in the group stage and go through as winners, with both London teams winning five games and drawing one. Rangers bowed out after defeat to Rapid Vienna but Celtic sneaked through despite losing at home to RB Salzburg on Thursday night.
Here are all the details for the last-32 draw, including who is in the hat and when the draw takes place…
When is the draw?
The draw will be on Monday December 17 in Nyon, Switzerland at 12pm GMT and you will be able to follow it online with Sky Sports.
Who will be in the draw?
The top two teams from each of the 12 Europa League groups go into the last-32 draw, along with the third-placed teams from the Champions League.
- Dinamo Zagreb
- Dynamo Kiev
- Inter Milan
- Zenit St Petersburg
- BATE Borisov
- Club Brugge
- Rapid Vienna
- Slavia Prague
- Sporting Lisbon
- Shakhtar Donetsk
- Viktoria Plzen
How does the draw work?
The 12 group winners, plus the four best third-placed teams from the Champions League, go into the draw as seeded teams. The runners-up and remaining Champions League sides are the unseeded teams.
Seeded teams are drawn against unseeded sides with the first leg at the home of the unseeded teams, before a second leg at the home stadium of the seeded side a week later.
Teams from the same group or same country cannot be drawn together for the round of 32, meaning Arsenal and Chelsea will not be playing each other. However, Celtic could be drawn against the Premier League clubs.
When are the last-32 ties?
The first legs will be played on February 14 before the second leg a week later on 21 February.
What happens next?
The round of 16 draw will be made on February 22 with the ties being played on March 7/14.
The quarter-final and semi-final draws will be on March 15 with the quarter-finals being played on April 11/18.
The semi-finals will be on May 2/9 before the final on Wednesday May 29 at the Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan.
