Leicester's tie is a repeat of a UEFA Cup tie from the 1997-98 season, which the Spanish side won.
Carlo Ancelotti will lead Bayern Munich against his former side and defending champions, Real Madrid.
The Champions League quarterfinal tie between Barcelona and Juventus is a marquee one, but one that looks a bit less likely to be a controlled tactical battle than in past years.
Sevilla, which lost to English champion Leicester on Tuesday, had already been held to 1-1 draws against Alaves and relegation-threatened Leganes in the league.
He added: "The second leg at home gives you a small advantage, but we need to play well in Germany".
Borussia Dortmund takes on AS Monaco which upset Manchester City in the previous round.
He said: "It was a very open game, they had chances in the second half and Oblak made some very good saves".
They were also beaten by Real in the quarter-finals in 2015 and won the Europa League in 2012.
Barcelona face Juventus after booking a place in the last eight with their astonishing comeback against Paris Saint-Germain, while Borussia Dortmund will take on Monaco.
Oblak ended the match a hero as Atletico advanced to the quarter-finals after winning a tense penalty shoot-out 3-2.
Ancelotti has three Champions League winners' medals, having bested the continent's elite twice while in charge of AC Milan, while Bayern were in rampant form as they dispatched Arsenal 5-1 home and away in a dominant last-16 showing.
Bayer Leverkusen CEO Michael Schade heaped praise on his team despite their exit from the Champions League at the hands of Atletico Madrid. Telles in the first leg and Pereira in the second made a tough task nearly impossible, but a professional if uninspiring performance from the Italian champions ensured safe passage the quarter finals with a 3-0 aggregate win.
