Europa League Quarter-final, 2nd leg, Apr 18
April 18, 2019 -- Europa League quarter-final second leg matches include Napoli against Arsenal, with the Italians aiming to use home advantage to recoup a two-goal deficit. Elsewhere, Benfica travel to Frankfurt while Chelsea and Valencia host Slavia Prague and Villarreal respectively.
European heavyweights Napoli, Benfica and Valencia could all progress to the Europa League semi-finals following elimination from the Champions League in December. Since 2000, seven teams have gone on to win the tournament in this way, including 2018 winners Atletico Madrid.
The 2018-2019 UEFA Europa League is the 48th season of Europe’s secondary club football tournament. The final will be played at the Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan, on May 29, 2019.
The winners automatically qualify for the 2019-20 Champions League group stage, and earn the right to play against the winners of the 2018-2019 Champions League in the 2019 UEFA Super Cup.
Clubs qualify for the competition based on their performance in their national league and cup competitions.
