Europa League draw 2013-14: Swansea to play Napoli and Tottenham against Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk

Draw for the last 32 has taken place in Nyon

Swansea have been drawn against Napoli in what appears a cracking tie as reward for their advancement from the group stages.

Tottenham, the only other Premier League side remaining in the competition, will play Ukrainian side Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.

With the club managerless following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas this morning, it will be seen as an irony that they will come up against a team managed by Juande Ramos, who was dismissed from White Hart Lane in 2008.

While Swansea's tie will be seen as the more glamourous, it will be much tougher to negotiate. Napoli, managed by former Liverpool and Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez, may have dropped out of the Champions League, but only on goal difference in a particularly tough group that included Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal.

Should Spurs come through the two-legged tie against Dnipro, they face a last 16 encounter against the winner of PAOK v Benfica, with the latter finishing as last season's runners-up after they lost the final to Chelsea.

For Swansea, should they record what would be a historic and shock win over Napoli, they would face another extremely testing two-legged affair against the winner of Porto v Frankfurt.
