Last season's semi-finalists Arsenal will face French outfit Rennes in the last 16 of the Europa League.

Arsenal have been given a last-16 tie with Rennes in Friday's Europa League draw.

The Gunners were required to overturn a first-leg deficit to come through their last-32 showdown with BTE Borisov, with a 3-0 victory being recorded at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday evening.

Unai Emery could have faced Sevilla or Valencia - two of his former sides - but the North London outfit face a double-header with French outfit Rennes, who got the better of Real Betis in the last round.

The first leg will take place in England's capital on March 7, with the reverse fixture being held at Rennes a week later.

Fellow Premier League club Chelsea have been handed a clash with Dynamo Kiev.
