The last Russian teams left in European competition this season, Krasnodar and Zenit, will face Spanish obstacles between them and the last eight.
Krasnodar, who qualified for the last 16 with late drama against Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday, will take a trip to Valencia. Zenit, who welcomed their players with a sublime pyrotechnic display to their game against Fenerbahce, will also travel to just down the road to play Valencia.
