Tottenham will face Borussia Dortmund in the last 16 of the Europa League at the start of next month.

Spurs will travel to Germany on Thursday 10th March with the return leg at White Hart Lane on Thursday 17th March.

Elsewhere in the draw Liverpool drew Manchester United in an all-British tie.

Shakhtar Donetsk v Anderlecht
