Juve enter Europa League draw

Juventus go into the Europa League quarter-final draw tomorrow with the likes of Valencia, Benfica, Porto and Lyon.

The Bianconeri are the only remaining Italian side in Europe, but also have more reason than anyone to seek the Europa League Final, as it will be played at the Juventus Stadium.

Sevilla won the Spanish Derby on penalties after a dramatic tie. They had lost the first leg 2-0 at home, but repeated that result on the turf of Betis.

It all went down to the final spot-kick, which Nono drilled off target for the hosts.

AZ Alkmaar squeezed past Anzhi 1-0 on aggregate thanks to the first leg home victory.

Valencia added to the pain of Ludogorets with a 1-0 home result, having already won 3-0 in Bulgaria.

Viktoria Plzen beat Lyon 2-1, but it was not enough to overturn the first leg mauling and they went out 3-5 on aggregate.

Benfica drew 2-2 with Tottenham and swept through, having won 3-1 in the first leg at White Hart Lane.

Basel snatched a 2-1 victory away to Red Bull Salzburg, but could play the quarter-final behind closed doors after their fans threw objects and forced the game to be suspended.
