Europa League Last-8 Fixtures: Arsenal, Atletico Madrid Favourites


Underperforming English side, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid of Spain emerged strong favourites for Europa League triumph this year with the quarter-finals draws made on Friday at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

With eyes on the trophy and a guaranteed spot in next season’s Champions League group stage competition, Arsenal, who comfortably brushed aside Italy’s AC Milan in the Last 16, must go all out to rejig themselves following their poor run in the domestic scene.

The Premiership club has a date with Nigeria’s Ahmed Musa Russian club and 2005 winners, CSKA Moscow for a place in the semi-finals holding in April. 

The other teams to fight for the semi-final spots in this incredibly competitive Europa League action are Atletico Madrid that will go up against Sporting CP and RB Leipzig slated to combat Olympic Marseille of France.

Italy’s Lazio FC have been drawn to confront Red Bull Salzburge.

2017/18 UEFA Europa League Quarterfinal Draw:

RB Leipzig vs Marseille

Arsenal vs CSKA Moscow

Atletico Madrid vs Sporting CP

Lazio vs Red Bull Salzburg

First leg ties will be played on Thursday, April 5, followed by the return legs one week later on Thursday, April 12, 2018.
