Arsenal and Milan will meet in the Europa League last 16, while favourites Atlético Madrid will entertain Lokomotiv Moscow 12.42pm GMT Thanks for your joining me. That was a good draw, with arguably the best saved until last, with Arsenal and Milan set to duel on 8 March. Bye! 12.38pm GMT It is an interesting draw for Peter Stöger, the Austrian manager of Borussia Dortmund. His side will do battle with FC Salzburg. Stöger was the last man to lead a team other than Salzburg to the Austrian title, in 2012-13 with Austria Wien. 12.33pm GMT The Gennaro Gattuso is, of course, the Milan manager these days. Here’s Paolo Bandini on how his man-management is already beginning to pay off: Related: Milan's spirit under Gennaro Gattuso starts to win over the doubters | Paolo Bandini 12.31pm GMT Arsenal’s fixtures make exciting, if a little daunting, reading. They face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday before doing battle again next Thursday. Then it’s Brighton away before a trip to Milan. The Italian side have though won on their last six visits to England, following a 1-0 win at Old Trafford in 2004-5. 12.29pm GMT Arsenal and Milan are sixth and seventh-place respectively in their domestic leagues, but it is sure to be a humdinger of a draw. It feels it, anyway. That night at the Emirates, six years ago, was Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s announcement on the big stage: Related: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain embodies Arséne Wenger's faith in spirit 12.23pm GMT The last time they met, in March 2012, Arsenal won 3-0, thanks to goals from Koscielny, Rosicky and van Persie. But, it was Milan who went through in the Champions League on aggregate after a crushing 4-0 at San Siro. Since 1995, they have met six times, with two draws, and two wins apiece. Related: Italian press: 'Milan-Arsenal was not a match, it was a massacre' 12.19pm GMT Well, how about that?

Who else but Éric Abidal, who is ready to play his part in plucking out the names in Nyon. “Lyon played two fantastic matches against Villarreal but deserved the results,” he says. 12.06pm GMT Uefa’s deputy general secretary Giorgio Marchetti, suited and booted, is speaking. “We are profoundly saddened by the tragic events in Bilbao,” he says, before congratulating the 16 teams on reaching this stage of the competition. “The adventure continues.” 12.02pm GMT “Uefa takes this opportunity to condemn these deplorable acts of violence,” begins the draw coverage. That was after those unsavoury scenes in Bilbao on Thursday: Related: Uefa investigates death of policeman before Athletic Bilbao v Spartak Moscow 11.57am GMT When will the games take place? The last-16 matches will be played on 8 and 15 March, although all of that will become a lot clearer inside the next hour. For those daring to dream, or pre-empting things by booking holiday off work, the final will take place in Lyon on 16 May. 11.53am GMT Who will Arsenal want to avoid? Atlético Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, for starters. “It looks like the level is high,” Wenger said last night. “You have some Russian teams, you have French teams, German teams. Overall, I believe that the competition will become tougher and tougher, so let’s hope we have a good draw.” 9.53am GMT Ben will be here shortly.
