Napoli test for Arsenal, Chelsea draw Slavia Prague


Arsenal will play Napoli in the Europa League quarter-finals, while Chelsea have been drawn to face Slavia Prague.

The Gunners overturned a 3-1 deficit from the first leg to defeat Rennes 4-3 on aggregate and secure a place in Friday's quarter-final draw.

Manager Unai Emery won the Europa League in three successive years with Sevilla and he is targeting another victory as he looks to deliver silverware in his first season in charge.

Chelsea, meanwhile, overcame Dynamo Kiev 8-0 on aggregate to book their place in the last eight and their reward is a quarter-final meeting with Slavia Prague.

Although Arsenal were drawn away to Napoli in the first leg, the game has been switched to the Emirates to avoid a clash with Chelsea's second leg against Slavia Prague at Stamford Bridge.

There is an all-Spanish ties as Villarreal taking on Valencia, while Benfica have been drawn against Eintracht Frankfurt.

An all-Premier League final remains a possibility with the winners of Arsenal's game with Napoli set to play either Villarreal or Valencia in the semi-final and Chelsea taking on either Benfica or Eintracht Frankfurt, providing they overcome Slavia Prague.
