See: Europe League last 16 draw: Arsenal face AC Milan, Dortmund get Salzburg [See full draw]

Arsenal have been drawn against Serie A side, AC Milan in the last 16 of the Europe League

The Gunners narrowly overcame Ostersunds in the second led of their last-32 tie, with Sead Kolasinnac’s goal ensuring that, despite being beaten 2-1 on the night, they advanced through 4-2 on aggregate.

Milan, meanwhile, were comfortable winners over two legs as they claimed a 4-0 aggregate win over Ludogorets with Fabio Borini scoring the only goal of the night at San Siro in the return meeting last night.

Arsene Wenger’s side last faced Milan in Champions League back in 2012, with the Premier League side dumped out 4-3 on aggregate despite winning the second leg of that last -16 tie 3-0.

Laurent Koscielny is the only Arsenal player that still plays for the club since that last meeting.

The French defender was even on the scoresheet that night, along with Tomas Rosicky and Robin van Persie.

Elsewhere in the draw, Dormund will face RB Salzburg – the Bundesliga side advancing past Atalanta in a game marred by alleged racial chants aimed at on-loan striker Michy Batshuayi.

Atletico Madrid have been drawn alongside Russian outfit Lokomotiv Moscow, and Ligue I side Marseille will take on another La Liga side in the form of Atletic Bilbao.
