Europa League: Quarter Final draw

While the majority of the focus will be UEFA Champions League, there is plenty of excitement in the Europa League, and now, we know the lineup of the quarter final fixtures.

British hopes rest on the shoulders of Arsenal, who comfortably navigated their way through the round of 16 with a 5-1 aggregate win over European giants AC Milan.

Despite Arsenal’s presence though, they are far from being the favourites in the tournament, with Spanish side Atletico Madrid still expected to lift the trophy in Lyon on 16th May having beaten Lokomotiv Moscow 8-1

Elsewhere, Marseille edged past Athletic Bilbao, Lazio overcame Dynamo Kiev, and Sporting Lisbon got an extra time winner to edge past Czech side Victoria Plzen.

The main casualty of the round of 16 was Borussia Dortmund who went out 2-1 on aggregate to Austrian side RB Salzburg, while their sister club RB Leipzig beat Zenit St Petersburg. Elsewhere CSKA Moscow beat Lyon to deny them a chance to play in the final in their home stadium.
