Manchester United and Liverpool have managed to avoid the big guns in the Europa League last-32 draw. Louis van Gaal's side will come against Danish club Midtjylland, who eliminated Southampton at the play-off stage of the competition back in the summer, while Jurgen Klopp will be up against German opposition once again after being paired with FC Augsburg.

Tottenham Hotspur meanwhile have been handed a reunion with Fiorentina. La Viola eliminated Mauricio Pochettino's at this very stage of the competition last season, with Mohamed Salah inflicting the damage on that occasion. Spurs will be out for revenge.

There are 32 teams in the hat for this round, so expect this one to go on for a bit...

12:13

Seeded teams:

Molde, Liverpool, Krasnodar, Napoli, Rapid Wien, Braga, Lazio, Lokomotiv Moskva, Basel, Tottenham Hotspur, Schalke, Athletic Bilbao.

UEFA Champions League best third-place: Porto, Olympiacos, Manchester United, Bayer Leverkusen.

Unseeded teams:

Fenerbahçe, Sion, Borussia Dortmund, Midtjylland, Villarreal, Marseille, St-Étienne, Sporting CP , Fiorentina, Anderlecht, Sparta Praha, Augsburg.

UEFA Champions League lower third-place Sevilla, Valencia, Galatasaray, Shakhtar Donetsk

12:13

And the ceremony in Nyon is underway.

12:11

Given the precarious position England's Uefa coefficent is currently in, United, Liverpool and Tottenham cannot really afford to not have a go in this competition.

While England will definitely have four teams in next season's Champions League, Italy are steady climbing up behind them in the coefficent rankings. Should English teams continue to flounder, Italy could soon have four teams represented in Europe's premier competition. Coefficent points in the Europa League also count towards this.

11:55

Defending champions Sevilla learnt last season just how rewarding the Europa League can be. In winning the competition for a third time last season, they earned automatic qualification for the Champions League, a huge incentive for any side eyeing a role in Europe's premier competition next season.

Sevilla were handed any huge favours, mind. They were drawn in the same group as Manchester City and Juventus, but will probably feel more at home in today's draw.

11:46

Manchester United were one of the four third-placed teams who finished with the most points, joining the 12 group winners from the Europa League group phase as the seeded teams for today's draw.

But given how the group stages of the Europa League panned out, that has done them no favours. Here are there possible opponents.

Manchester United's possible opponents for the last 32 draw: Shakhtar Donetsk, Galatasaray, Sevilla, Valencia, Fenerbache, FC Sion, Borussia Dortmund, FC Midtjylland, Villarreal, Marseille, Saint-Etienne, Sporting Lisbon, Fiorentina, Anderlecht, Sparta Prague, FC Augsburg

Best case scenario: FC Sion, Sparta Prague and FK Partizan.

Worst case scenario: As you can see, there are an awful lot of decent teams who finished as group runners up in the Europa League. Borussia Dortmund, Fiorentina, Marseille and Gary Neville's Valencia lie in wait for van Gaal's side. It's obviously going to be Valencia, because that's the way football works, right?

11:39

Tottenham's possible opponents in the last 32: Shakhtar Donetsk, Galatasaray, Sevilla, Valencia, Fenerbache, FC Sion, Borussia Dortmund, FC Midtjylland, Villarreal, Marseille, Saint-Etienne, Sporting Lisbon, Fiorentina, Sparta Prague, FC Augsburg

Best case scenario: FC Sion, FC Augsburg

Worst case scenario: Perhaps Fiorentina, who knocked Spurs out of the competition last season? Defending champions Sevilla, maybe?

11:39

Liverpool's possible opponents in the last 32: Shakhtar Donetsk, Galatasaray, Sevilla, Valencia, Fenerbache, Borussia Dortmund, FC Midtjylland, Villarreal, Marseille, Saint-Etienne, Sporting Lisbon, Fiorentina, Anderlecht, Sparta Prague, FC Augsburg

Best case scenario: Sparta Prague and FC Ausburg would appear the preferred options on paper.

Worst case scenario: It's going to be Borussia Dortmund, isn't it? Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool manager, drawn against the club where he established himself as one of Europe's brightest coaches, seems too perfect not too happen. There are plenty of other possibilities to trouble the Reds, however, including defending champions Sevilla. The chance to eliminate Gary Neville's Valencia is perhaps the most enticing option there
