West Ham have been drawn against Sevilla in the Europa League round of 16.

Rangers will face a tricky trip to Serbia as they have been matched up with Red Star Belgrade, while Barcelona will take on Galatasaray.

Rangers reached this stage of the competition after finishing second in their group. They then overcame Borussia Dortmund 6-4 on aggregate in the first knockout round.

West Ham won their group and avoided having to compete in the first knockout round as a result.

Barcelona, meanwhile, beat Napoli after dropping out of the Champions League to reach the round of 16.

The first legs will take place on March 10 — apart from Porto and Betis’s home legs, which are on March 9 — with the second leg on March 17.

RB Leipzig will not have to travel to Moscow for their game against Spartak. UEFA has decided Russian and Ukrainian teams will have to play their games in neutral venues amid the current conflict.

A statement on Friday read: At today’s meeting, the UEFA Executive Committee also decided that Russian and Ukrainian clubs and national teams competing in UEFA competitions will be required to play their home matches at neutral venues until further notice.
