We have been drawn alongside Sevilla, PSV Eindhoven and Lens in the group stage of this season's Champions League.
The draw took place in Monaco this evening, and we found ourselves included in Group B alongside the three other sides.
Sevilla won last season’s Europa League for a record seventh time to qualify for the group stages, whom we last faced in the 2007/08 edition of the competition when we recorded a 3-0 home win before losing 3-1 in Spain.
We will return to Eindhoven for the second-straight season having been drawn alongside PSV in the Europa League last term, winning 1-0 at Emirates Stadium before losing 2-0 away from home. The Dutch side qualified via the play-off round, eliminating Rangers 7-2 on aggregate. We have faced each other eight times before, with us winning three and drawing two of those games.
Ligue 1 runners-up Lens were our first-ever opponent in the Champions League in the 1998/99 season, when we drew 1-1 in France but lost 1-0 at Wembley. We did though beat them home and away the following season in the UEFA Cup.
Fixtures for the group stage will be announced in due course.
