Olympiakos has drawn Spanish side Levante in the round of 32 of the Europa League.

The first leg of the knock-out tie will take place in Valencia with the second leg in Piraeus, the draw in Switzerland decided on Thursday.

Levante, currently holding the fifth spot in the Spanish league table, has former AEK defender Nikos Karabelas in its roster, and used to have Greece international Fanis Gekas, too until a few weeks ago.

The games will take place on February 14 and 21.

The winner of the tie will face the winner of the Atletico Madrid vs Rubin Kazan pair in March.
