Now the main event.
Napoli vs Arsenal
Hopefully Chelsea will draw Frankfurt.
Good stuff from a top4 chase perspective.
Villarreal vs Valencia. I remember they played against each other some time in Europa league.
Benfica vs Frankfurt.
Chelsea with easy run in to Semi finals.
Shit draw for us. Oh well, we’ll still beat Napoli.
Arsenal have their game switched to they are at home first against Napoli....
Chelsea in the final. Annoying.
If I was a Chelsea fan, I'd be booking tickets to the final already
Happy enough with that draw from a Gooner perspective, either we crash out & focus on the “top 4 trophy” or we go through with the confidence of knocking out a strong team.
Possibliity of meeting Santi in the semis & Giroud in the final!
Quarter final draw
Arsenal v Napoli *been reversed from Napoli v Arsenal
Villarreal v Valencia
Benfica v Eintracht Frankfurt
Slavia Praha v Chelsea
Semi final draw
Arsenal/Napoli v Villarreal/Valencia
Benfica/Eintracht Frankfurt v Slavia Praha/Chelsea
Benfica/Eintracht Frankfurt/Slavia Praha/Chelsea v Arsenal/Napoli/Villarreal/Valencia
Odds on Chelsea should go down after that.
Darren Bent wanted Arsenal and Chelsea to avoid Sevilla.
Without realising they were knocked out yesterday haha
Arsenal are out. The reversal fecked them over because they can't leverage their home advantage anymore. Ancelotti will be licking his chops at getting an away goal and then seeing out the game at home since Arsenal are horrible away from home.
Am I right in thinking that if two English teams who finish in the top 4, win the CL + EL, that means whoever comes 4th in the league misses out on CL qualification for next season?
So if City or Liverpool win the CL, and Chelsea or Arsenal come 3rd and win the EL, and United come 4th... we're fecked!
Watched Slavia last night, fun, attacking team.
I think were fcked if a non top 4 team wins the CL. So if Spurs finish 5th, us 4th but they win CL then yea.
otherwise Europa has no bearing.
I think the CL winner needs to finish outside the top 4 for that to happen.
5 teams will play
Ah ok, so I got that mixed up. Don't see Spurs winning the CL so nothing to worry about...
Maybe it's a stick to beat United but our draw wasn't easier than Atleticos last year or Chelseas this season.
Anyway, Chelsea would be mad to focus on the league after this. El all the way for them.
Good to have the second leg at home. Can't take it as an easy tie though.
Didn't want to play Arsenal over two legs, so that is good. They are far better at the Emirates than away / neutral. Would still be a tough final 50/50 game if we both make it.
Hopefully Sarri can get us to the final and redeem the league do final cup shambles.
Hope Arsenal and Chelsea get to the finals.
Great away trip to Prague for the Chelsea fans!
Why is our tie reversed again? We had our tie reversed against Rennes so shouldn't it be Chelsea's turn to have it reversed this time?
Let them win it. They are mostly Cup Winner's Cup and Uefa Cup club.
Because you finished below them in the Premier League last season.
Probably best if both Arsenal and Chelsea get to the final, though as long as they get to the semis that's good enough for me.
Arsenal Chelsea final hopefully. Strongly disapprove of hooliganism but in this case happy to sit at home and watch the scores come in.
Chelsea vs Napoli should be the final, the 2 strongest remaining teams.
Poor Arsenal. That was a fecked draw.
Kills my dream scenarios of an all English final
I'd bet my imaginary house on Jović scoring against his parent club.
for who? Us? Couldn't have picked an easier one! I am absolutely confident of getting to the final after seeing that draw. Away first v Prague aswell.
the Europa League is a far more valuable trophy now, as it has CL entry if you win. You literally would be mad to not want to win it.
Don't underestimate SP. They put in an incredibly spirited performance to knock out Sevilla yesterday, and Sevilla have run this tournament for years Of course you're favourites, but still, they have proven capable of an upset.
