UEFA Europa League quarter-final draw
The french club, Olympique Lyonnais will take on Juventus .
With Sevilla in their fourth European quarter-final, Juventus are preparing for their 27th, though never in their long history in UEFA competition have the Turin team come up against seven-time French champions Lyon. The three-time winners, closing in on a third consecutive Scudetto, are seeking to become the first club since Feyenoord in 2001/02 to claim the trophy in their own stadium.
AZ Alkmaar and SL Benfica will also lock horns for the first time following Friday’s draw in Nyon, in the only tie not involving former winners. Both have plenty of pedigree, though. The Dutch side were runners-up in 1980/81 and are coached by Dick Advocaat, who won this competition with FC Zenit in 2008. Two-time European champions Benfica are in the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals for the fourth time in five seasons.
Quarter-finals (3 & 10 April, kick-off at 21.05CET)
AZ Alkmaar (NED) v SL Benfica (POR)
Olympique Lyonnais (FRA) v Juventus (ITA)
FC Basel 1893 (SUI) v Valencia CF (ESP)
FC Porto (POR) v Sevilla FC (ESP)
The draw for the last four will be made in Nyon on Friday 11 April, with the ties being played on 24 April and 1 May.
