The Scottish giants Celtic have been drawn to face Spanish side Valencia in the last 32 of the Europa League.

Valencia are 14th in LaLiga and finished third in their Champions League group, behind Juventus and Manchester United.

Premier League side Arsenal play against Bate Borisov of Belarus, while Chelsea – who won the competition in 2013 – to face Swedish side Malmo.

Most of the two-legged ties will be played on 14 and 21 February 2019.

Arsenal’s home second leg will be on Wednesday, 20 February at 17:00 GMT.

The Gunners and Chelsea were both seeded for the draw, meaning they host their 2nd legs and teams from the same city cannot play at home on the same night.

So, both teams finished top of their respective groups, each having won 5 of their 6 matches and tied once.
