Barcelona v Napoli Highlights Europa League Knockout Draw

Barcelona will take on Italian side Napoli in the Europa League playoff round after being knocked out of the Champions League last week.

Barca finished third in their group behind Bayern Munich and Benfica, which saw them drop into Europe’s secondary competition for the first time in 17 years.

They will face Napoli for a place in the round-of-16, with the first leg to be played at Camp Nou on Feb. 17. The return game will take place in Naples at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium a week later.

Elsewhere, Scottish champions Rangers were paired with Borussia Dortmund, while six-time Europa League winners Sevilla will face Dinamo Zagreb.

The other ties pit Atalanta against Olympiakos, RB Leipzig against Real Sociedad, Zenit St Petersburg against Real Betis, Sheriff Tiraspol against Braga and Porto against Lazio.

All the playoff matches will be played over the same two dates in February, with the winners advancing to the round-of-16, when the teams that topped their group in the Europa League will re-join the competition.

West Ham, FK Crvena Zvezda, Eintracht Frankfurt, Galatasaray, Bayer Leverkusen, Lyon, Monaco and Spartak Moscow are the eight sides already through to that stage.

The final will be played at Sevilla’s Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in May.
