Three-time champion Inter Milan were drawn to play Getafe, and record five-time champions Sevilla will face Roma.

Manchester United will play at Austrian club LASK in the first leg in a pairing of the highest- and lowest-ranked teams left in the competition.

There were 17 teams in the last 16 draw because a hurricane warning in Austria prevented Salzburg from hosting Frankfurt on Thursday. They are scheduled to play Friday, and the winner will face Basel.

After beating Arsenal on Thursday, Olympiakos were paired with another English team, Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The second legs are scheduled to be played on 19 March.
