The Europa League quarter-final draw takes place today, with great British interest in the proceedings in Switzerland.
West Ham fought back to stun Sevilla at home in the Round of 16 last night, while Barcelona won in Turkey against Galatasaray after a goalless draw at Camp Nou.
Rangers – who had already toppled Borussia Dortmund – saw their comfortable lead over Red Star Belgrade, while Atalanta and Braga qualified after first-leg advantages over Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco respectively.
The quarter-finals are just approaching and the draw will also decide the rest of the competition. Already in the hat were RB Leipzig, after Spartak Moscow were kicked out of the competition.
Here’s everything you need to know before the draw…
