Europa League Quarter Final Draw and Thoughts


Sporting Braga v Shakhtar Donetsk

Villarreal  v Sparta Prague

Athletic Bilbao  v Sevilla

Borussia Dortmund  v Liverpool

  • Well it’s pretty obvious what the story of the round is, Jurgen Klopp is handed a return to Dortmund as his Liverpool side are paired up with the conquerors of Tottenham
  • Many felt this was going to be the final but they will meet at the Quarter Final stage instead
  • Athletic Bilbao are handed another all Spanish tie after beating “Gary Neville’s Valencia” this time it’s holders Sevilla who are looking to win the competition 3 years in a row
  • Sparta Prague are rewarded with a tie against Villarreal after knocking out Lazio
  • While Shakhtar are paired up with Braga
  • Liverpool could do the Premier League a massive favour if they advance as it will give England’s coefficient the chance to increase and preserve those 4 berths for the Champions League
