EUROPA LEAGUE QUARTER-FINAL DRAW: WEST HAM FACE LYON, BARCELONA PLAY EINTRACHT FRANKFURT.
West Ham edged past Sevilla in the round-of-16 and, on paper at least, face a kinder quarter-final after drawing Lyon in the last eight. And should they get past Lyon, they could face Barcelona who drew Eintracht Frankfurt in their quarter-final. Rangers, too, will fancy themselves to get past Braga and into the semi-finals where they could play either Leipzig or Atalanta.
West Ham have drawn Lyon in the quarter-finals of the Europa League and face a potential semi-final tie against Barcelona should they progress.
David Moyes’ men progressed after beating Europa League masters Sevilla in the Round-of-16, and in paper at least a quarter-final showdown against a struggling Lyon side looks an easier prospect.
Barcelona, playing in their first Europa League since 2001, drew 1980 winners Eintracht Frankfurt.
Rangers will be the happiest of the sides, drawing Braga who they beat two years ago 4-1 on aggregate in the same competition.
They could face either Leipzig or Atalanta in the semis.
The draw leaves open the unlikely yet mouth-watering prospect of a West Ham vs Rangers final.
The quarter-final first legs will be played on April 7, with the second legs on April 14.
