Arsenal Draw Napoli, Chelsea Face Slavia Prague in Europa League Quarterfinals

Premier League giants Arsenal have been drawn against Napoli in the quarterfinals of the Europa League.

It’s a rather tough draw for the Gunners who are hoping to win the Europa League and ensure a return to the glamorous world of the Champions league after a three-year absence.

Arsenal’s London rivals Chelsea got a kinder draw after they were pitted against Slavia Prague.

Gunners boss Unai Emery is chasing a fourth Europa League title as manager after winning the competition three successive times at Sevilla.

Like the Gunners, Maurizio Sarri’s men are banking on winning the Europa League to save what has been a rather faltering campaign.

There’s an all-Spanish tie as Villarreal take on Valencia, while Portuguese team Benfica take on Germany’s Eintracht Frankfurt in the last quarterfinal pairing.

Europa League quarter-finals:

Napoli v Arsenal

The first legs will be played on Thursday 11 April with the second legs on 18 April.
