LaLiga club Barcelona will face Turkish side Galatasaray in the last 16 of the Europa League, while six-times champions Sevilla will play English Premier League club West Ham United after the draw took place on Friday.

West Ham have a tough task at hand against Sevilla, who are second in LaLiga and famously dubbed the Europa League specialists.
