Friday's draw takes place in Nyon, Switzerland.

Friday 23 February is a date that has been in Albion fans’ diaries since that memorable December night at the Amex when we beat Marseille.

The 1-0 victory that secured top spot in our Europa League group meant we went straight through to the last 16.

The draw takes place in Nyon, Switzerland at 11am GMT on Friday when we will be joined by the other seven group winners plus the eight teams who get through from the knockout stage, which concludes on Thursday.

Seeded teams will be drawn against one of the winners of the play-off round.

Who is already in the draw?

The other seven seeded teams are: Liverpool, West Ham United, Glasgow Rangers, Atalanta, Bayer Leverkusen, Slavia Prague and Villarreal. Teams from the same national association cannot face each other at this stage. 

Who are the unseeded teams?


AC Milan





Sparta Prague

Sporting Clube de Portugal

So it is possible that Albion could play Marseille again, in the last 16 round.

When does the next round take place?

Ties take place over two legs on March 7 and 14, with the group winners at home in the second legs.

Please note that due to the city clash between SL Benfica and Sporting Clube de Portugal, if we were drawn against Sporting Clube de Portugal the away leg would take place on Tuesday 5 March.

UEFA have intimated that dates and kick-off times for all ties will be confirmed by 6pm on Friday. With a number of factors at play, we strongly advise supporters to wait until this confirmation before booking travel and accommodation.

Ties level after 180 minutes will go to extra time irrespective of the number of goals each team has scored at home and away. If the teams still cannot be separated after the additional 30 minutes, the tie goes to a penalty shoot-out.
