Europa League: Frankfurt in the quarterfinals after 1-0 in Milan, Sevilla loses thriller


Eintracht Frankfurt have made their way into the quarter-finals of the Europa League without coach Adi Hütter. The German cup winner knocked out Italy's fourth-placed Inter Milan on Thursday with a 1-0 away win. Luka Jovic scored the match winner in the sixth minute. In Frankfurt, the two teams were scoreless.

Sevilla had a extremely difficult time in the Czech Republic from the start. Slavia's first two goals were scored by Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui (15) and Tomas Soucek (47./1), while Wissam Ben Yedder (44) and Munir (54) saved the Spaniard's into extra time. There was the Joker Franco Vazquez (98.), who supposedly laid the foundation for the ascent. Mick van Buren (102) and Ibrahim Traore (119), who profited from a failed attempt at Simon Kjaer's clearance, made the surprise victory after the 2-2 in the first leg.

Benfica rose thanks to goals from Francisco Ferreira (94) and Alex Grimaldo (105) in extra time against Zagreb.

England's top clubs were not shy at all. Arsenal made it 3-3 home win against Stade Rennes the 1: 3 from the first leg yet. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice (5th, 72nd minute), while the third goal went to Ainsley Maitland-Niles (15th).

Chelsea beat Dynamo Kiev after the 3-0 in the first leg away 5-0. Outstanding was triple scorer Olivier Giroud.
