Chelsea and Arsenal are both handed favourable draws in the last 32 of the Europa League, while Celtic have been paired with Valencia.

Chelsea and Arsenal have both been handed favourable draws in the last 32 of the Europa League.

Both of the Premier League sides finished at the top of their respective groups, and the two London outfits have avoided a showdown with some notable clubs who were in the unseeded section of the draw.

Chelsea will go head to head with Swedish side Malmo, while Arsenal have been given another clash with BATE Borisov after comfortably seeing off the Belarusian champions on two occasions during last year's group stages.

Celtic's reward for edging out RB Leipzig in the group stage is a testing double-header with Valencia, who avoided defeat against Manchester United in the Champions League.

The pick of the remaining ties was Lazio being handed a two-legged contest with Sevilla, while Napoli go up against Swiss outfit FC Zurich.
