Ancelotti's Napoli faces Arsenal in Europa League

Europa League

That's all for today!

"I am doing everything to make it happen and my team-mates are the same".

The Europa League draw on Friday nicely allowed the two London sides to be separated all the way to the final, should they both proceed through the next two knockout rounds.

Giroud has mostly had to make do with second striker status - first to Alvaro Morata and then to Gonzalo Higuain - after signing for the club in an £18m transfer from Arsenal in January 2018.

Arsenal or Napoli were drawn to play Villarreal or Valencia, and Benfica or Eintracht Frankfurt would be at home first against Chelsea or Slavia Prague.

The remaining tie pits Benfica against Eintracht Frankfurt, with the victor facing Chelsea or Slavia Prague in the semi-finals.

A very favourable tie for the Premier League club, as they take on Czech side Slavia Praha.


And accordingly the victor of the third quarter-final will play the victor of the second in the semi-finals. "Despite standing at just 5'4", he carries huge importance to the side and Carlo Ancelotti will be desperate to bring him back to full fitness in time for this quarter-final clash.

The final will be played in Baku on May 29. Two big guns there - what a tie!

Let's take a quick look at the teams involved.

Whereas Chelsea or Slavia Prague will face either Benfica or Eintracht Frankfurt, Villarreal or Valencia will be Napoli or Arsenal's next opponents in the Semi-Finals.

Welcome to our live coverage!

Whilst Spurs or United will be allowed to try and retain the Champions League trophy next season should they win it at the Wanda Metropolitano, Madrid, at the beginning of June, Arsenal or Chelsea will gain entry upon winning the Europa League.
