  • Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool
    4/10 Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool: Coutinho magic ensures Reds' progress: Philippe Coutinho's superb individual goal ensured Liverpool progressed to the quarter-finals of the Europa League at the expense of Manchester United after a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. Jurgen Klopp's team claimed a dominant 2-0 win at Anfield but United were much improved from that lacklustre showing and sparked hopes of a turnaround when the impressive Anthony Martial won and netted a 32nd-minute penalty. Visiting striker Daniel Sturridge struck the crossbar before Coutinho extinguished United's ambitions of a comeback with an exquisite solo goal on the stroke of half-time.
  • Sevilla 3-0 Basel
    5/10 Sevilla 3-0 Basel (agg 3-0): Gameiro goals help holders march on: Kevin Gameiro was at the double as Sevilla downed Basel 3-0 in the Europa League to advance to the quarter-finals of the competition. Adil Rami got the scoring underway for Unai Emery's men when the defender met Jose Antonio Reyes' corner with a glancing header.

  • Bayer Leverkusen 0-0 Villarreal
    6/10 Bayer Leverkusen 0-0 Villarreal (agg 0-2): Spaniards through in draw: Villarreal booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Europa League after a 0-0 draw in the second leg of their last-16 affair against Bayer Leverkusen saw them advance through 2-0 on aggregate. A resolute Villarreal rear guard protected that advantage brilliantly to frustrate a Leverkusen side that failed to show a clinical edge in front of goal.
  • Tottenham 1-2 Borussia Dortmund
    7/10 Tottenham 1-2 Borussia Dortmund (agg 1-5): Aubameyang & Co. coast into quarter-finals: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice as Borussia Dortmund eased into the Europa League quarter-finals with an aggregate 5-1 win over Tottenham. The striker ended any slender hopes Spurs had of overhauling a 3-0 deficit from the first leg when he beat Hugo Lloris from long range in the 24th minute. Aubameyang took his tally for the season to 35 with a second goal in the 70th minute, with Lloris failing to keep out a powerful drive that deflected into the net off the Frenchman's right arm. Neven Subotic's weak back pass allowed Son Heung-min score, although his effort was no more than a consolation for Tottenham.
  • Lazio 0-3 Sparta Prague
    8/10 Lazio 0-3 Sparta Prague (agg 1-4): Biancoceleste suffer crushing home humiliation: Lazio crashed out of the Europa League after they suffered a shocking 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Sparta Prague. Stefano Pioli's men held a slender advantage after drawing the first leg 1-1 but had no answer to their visitors at the Olimpico as they were eventually swept aside 4-1 on aggregate. Borek Dockal and Ladislav Krejci struck for the Czechs in two devastating minutes in the first half to put the visitors in the driver's seat. Any hope of a comeback was crushed when Lukas Julis volleyed in Martin Frydek's cross to complete the rout and send Sparta through to the quarter-finals.
  • Anderlecht 0-1 Shakhtar Donetsk
    9/10 Anderlecht 0-1 Shakhtar Donetsk (agg 1-4): Ukrainians reach last eight: Shakhtar Donetsk booked a spot in the quarter-finals of the Europa League after Eduardo's late goal sealed a 1-0 win at Anderlecht, putting the gloss on a 4-1 aggregate triumph. The Ukrainians had Oleksandr Kucher sent off six minutes from time but any hope Anderlecht had using their extra man to their advantage was ended when Kara Mbodji was sent off seconds later, before Eduardo prodded home late on.
  • Braga 4-1 Fenerbahce
    10/10 Braga 4-1 Fenerbahce (agg 4-2): Eight-man visitors squander first-leg lead: Braga mounted a stunning second-half turnaround as Fenerbahce's ill discipline cost them dear in a 4-1 defeat, handing the hosts a 4-2 aggregate win in the last 16 of the Europa League. It was Mehmet Topal's dismissal that swung the tie after Koka's early opener had been cancelled out by Alper Potuk on the stroke of half-time, the scorer of the away goal later given his own marching orders. After seeing a number of chances go begging the hosts began their comeback as Josue netted a 66th-minute penalty. Braga still needed another goal to progress and did not have to wait long as Nikola Stoiljkovic pounced after 74 minutes, the striker swivelling to fire beyond Volkan Demirel. Rafa Silva added gloss to their victory in the closing minutes, while Fener's frustrations manifested in further red cards for Potuk and Volkan Sen in the final few minutes.
