Arsenal are set to learn their Europa League last-16 fate this morning.

The draw takes place at 11am GMT at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, with a number of tough ties potentially lurking for the Gunners as they look to secure a quarter-final spot.

Mikel Arteta’s side will be playing away in the first leg because they topped their group in the autumn, prevailing against Swiss side FC Zurich, Bodo/Glimt of Norway, and runners-up PSV Eindhoven.


They will face the winner of one of the eight play-off ties between the unseeded sides who finished second in their Europa League group and sides who came third in their Champions League group.

They also cannot face Manchester United, who toppled Barcelona on Thursday night, due to clubs from the same nation being kept apart at this stage of the competition.

Who could Arsenal face in Europa League last-16?

  • Juventus

  • Sporting Lisbon

  • Sevilla

  • Bayer Leverkusen

  • Union Berlin

  • Shakhtar Donetsk

  • Roma

The first and second legs will be played on March 9 and March 16 respectively.
