Sevilla to Face Zenit in Europa League Quarterfinals
NYON, Switzerland (AP) — Defending champion Sevilla will take on Russian side Zenit St. Petersburg in the quarterfinals of the Europa League, and Napoli will play against Bundesliga club Wolfsburg for the first time.
Sevilla, which advanced at the expense of Villarreal to stay on course to win the continent's second-tier competition for a fourth time in 10 years, will host the Russian club in the first leg on April 16, with the return leg on April 23.
Fiorentina, the other Italian team to reach the quarterfinals, has been paired with Dynamo Kiev, with the final match-up putting Dnipro of Ukraine against Belgian club Bruges.
Russian and Ukrainian sides could not meet in the quarterfinals under a decision of the UEFA Emergency Committee because of the crisis involving the countries.
