Europa League: Liverpool get Besiktas, Celtic take on Inter, Spurs face Fiorentina and Everton tied with Young Boys


The Europa League last 32 draw was made with Liverpool and Celtic both facing familiar foes in Besiktas and Inter Milan respectively.

Celtic's tie against Inter Milan will hold plenty of nostalgia for the older generation of fans, as the tie is a repeat of the 1967 European Cup final in Lisbon, which the Glasgow side won 2-1, and in doing so became Britain's first European champions.

The side, who were all born in Glasgow, went on to be known as the 'Lisbon Lions' for their heroics that night.

Liverpool will have fond memories of facing their opponents as well, as their last meeting was an 8-0 thrashing of the Turkish side at Anfield in 2008.

Tottenham, who play Serie A side Fiorentina, and Everton, who face Swiss club Young Boys, are both facing their respective sides for the first time.

The two legs will be played on 19 and 26 February 2015.

This season's Europa League winners will qualify for next year's Champions League play-offs.
