Borussia Dortmund have drawn Sevilla FC in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.
Sevilla advanced to the knockout stage after finishing second in Group E, behind Chelsea , but ahead of Stade Rennais and FC Krasnodar. Currently sitting 5th in La Liga, Sevilla are a strong side who should be taken seriously. Some of their best players include those you might recognize, like Ivan Rakitic, Jesus Navas, Lucas Ocampos, Luuk de Jong, and Youssef En-Nesyri.
Even though Sevilla will be a tough opponent, Borussia Dortmund arguably dodged the two most dangerous possible opponents in the first round, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, who drew Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea respectively. The remaining Bundesliga clubs, Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig, and Borussia Mönchengladbach, drew SS Lazio, Liverpool, and Manchester City, respectively.
Here’s a complete list of all the draws:
