Everton will host Dynamo Kiev on March 12 at Goodison Park before traveling to the Ukrainian capital for the second leg a week later.

Other ties which stick out include Spanish outfits Villarreal and Sevilla doing battle, while an all-Italian clash will take place with Fiorentina and AS Roma.

Another mouth-watering tie is in-form Bundesliga side Wolfsburg taking on Roberto Mancini’s Inter Milan for a place in the quarter finals, as five Italian sides are in the last 16.

An interesting note from the last 16 draw: two Russian and two Ukrainian sides could have met each other but UEFA decided to keep them apart due to the current war between the two nations.
