Chelsea have drawn Sparta Prague in the round of 16 of the Europa League.

Prague came 2nd last year in the Gambrinus liga (Czech league) and could prove to be a tough test for the Blues, especially if we don't bring our A-game.

Hopefully we won't decide to make things difficult for ourselves (as we often do) come February 14th!

For those who are interested, here is the full draw;

BATE vs Fenerbahce
Inter Milan vs CFR Cluj-Napoca
Levante vs Olympiacos
Zenit St Petersburg vs Liverpool
Dynamo Kiev vs Bordeaux
Bayer Leverkusen vs Benfica
Newcastle vs FC Metalist Kharkiv
VfB Stuttgart vs Genk
Atletico Madrid vs Rubin Kazan
Ajax vs Steaua Bucuresti
Basle vs Dnipro
Anzhi Makhachkala vs Hannover 96
Sparta Prague vs Chelsea
Borussia M'gladbach vs Lazio
Tottenham vs Lyon
Napoli v Plzen

First legs to be played on February 14, second legs on February 21

& this is the draw for the quarter finals;

Napoli/Plzen vs BATE/Fenerbahce
Bayer Leverkusen/Benfica vs Dynamo Kiev/Bordeaux
Anzhi Mackhachkala/Hannover 96 vs Newcastle/FC Metalist Kharkiv
VfB Stuttgart/Genk vs Borussia M'gladbach/Lazio
Tottenham/Lyon vs Inter Milan/CFR Cluj-Napoca
Levante/Olympiacos vs Atletico Madrid/Rubin Kazan
Basle/Dnipro vs Zenit St Petersburg/Liverpool
Ajax/Steaua Bucuresti vs Sparta Prague/Chelsea

First legs to be played on March 7, second legs on March 14

So if we get through to the quarter finals, it looks like we will more than likely be facing Ajax (who caused Manchester City plenty of problems). That will definitely be a tough one!

I for one want us to win the Europa League, we are in it now and should definitely look at going for the trophy! It will be excellent experience for our newly acquired young talent and also a statement that even though we fell at the first hurdle in the Champions League, we are still a European force!

So Chelsea fans, what are your views on the draw?

Do you think we should go all out to win the Europa League?
