Tottenham will face Borussia Dortmund in the last 16 of the Europa League at the start of next month.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side made easy work of Fiorentina at White Hart Lane on Thursday night to cruise past the Serie A side 4-1 on aggregate and move a step closer to the final in Basel in May.

Dele Alli and Toby Alderweireld were rewarded for their fine displays with spots in UEFA’s team of the week for the second legs and the pair will hope to continue their fine form in Germany.

Spurs will travel to Germany on Thursday 10th March with the return leg at White Hart Lane on Thursday 17th March.

Elsewhere in the draw Liverpool drew Manchester United in an all-British tie.

Full draw:

Shakhtar Donetsk v Anderlecht
