    First leg away. Not the easiest we could have drawn but certainly not the worst.

    From the potential opponents, I'd have taken them all day long.

    If Leicester can beat them over two legs we certainly can, Liverpool should have won both games against them this year as well

    Us and the other 3 ENG group winners had a 50% chance of facing one of the lesser sides (which included Sevilla) - I'll take that!

    We shouldn't fear them. So long as we don't suffer any serious injuries, we can progress with ease.

    On their day very good, but could be worse. We have problems against Spanish sides, but we should beat them over 2 legs

    Great draw! Especially as their defence are absolute shambles. We'll probably score at least two at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

    Sevilla don't turn up in the CL. Didn't Leicester knock them out last season?

    As good a draw as you're gonna get but still a tough one as the Scousers found out. Can't afford to underestimate them. It's gonna be a tough couple of fixtures.

    Based off the Liverpool vs Sevilla games, Sevilla is a good team but a team we should be able to overcome. We defend a lot better than the Scousers.

    I would say Sevilla has the worst defence (alongside Besiktas) of all teams still in the tournament. Great draw!

    Decent draw, could have been much worse, and no issues with the travel there. Having to go to Shakthar mid-week would have been a balls.

    Nothing to fear here. Sevilla are the not as tough a prospect as they were under Emery, if we play to our potential we should win over two legs.

    If we cannot beat Sevilla then we should just give up playing football altogether. No disrespect to them but this is a team we should be slaying considering our resources.

    It’s a perfect draw for us.

    Both teams know how to win in European knockout football. This won’t be easy, but we should be winning seven or eight times out of ten.

    Separate draw for each round nowadays. There’s no knockout tree drawn.

    Real just smashed them 5-0. All goals in the first half.

    Cup football is rarely that straightforward. Yes, we have a lot of money (and have spent a lot of it recently) but there's more to the game than that. Sevilla will put everything into trying to beat us, and they have some very good attacking players that should not be written off.

    We should beat them and we should be happy we did not get Bayern or Madrid. We should not underestimate the challenge though.

    We'll play in Sevilla between our away game to Newcastle and potential FA Cup 5th Round, or between that FA Cup game and our home game versus Chelsea.

    We'll play the return leg at Old Trafford between league games. Either Palace (A) and Liverpool (H), or Liverpool (H) and West Ham (A).

    Knocked out by Leicester last season. They're not Basel, but serious questions would need to be asked if we get knocked out by them.

    As many have said, could have been a lot worse. I expect us to beat them over 2 legs, we need a good away result to take some pressure off for the return leg. We saw how Madrid battered them on saturday they are there for the taking and we should have the know how to handle them.

    Fine draw. Not the best but certainly not the worse. Should be beating them in both legs.

    Their coach Berizzo has cancer so he might not even be their coach anymore by the time February rolls around.

    You’ll beat them easily, unless Banega decides to turn up, in which case you’ll beat them with some considerable difficultly.

    I don't think we'll beat them easily either way. With it being the KOs José's bound to be more cautious and when he's cautious we play so poorly.

    Relatively happy with this draw. If we can't beat Sevilla we have no business being in the CL.

    It'll be a tough one but one we can win. Spanish sides are very good, look how we just got past Celta last season. Also these games will be in February, I expect, and Sevilla will have had a two week break at Xmas whereas we'll be slogging it out in the PL and the FA Cup, even got a game on New Year's Eve !
