April 15, 2021 - UEFA Europa League Quarter-final second leg matches include a contest between Slavia Prague, who could become the first Czech team to reach the Europa League semi-finals, against 2019 finalists Arsenal. The first leg, at the Emirates, ended in a 1-1 draw.

The remaining contests include those between 2017 champions Manchester United, who hold a two-goal advantage over tournament debutants Granada, and Roma and Villarreal, who have the upper hand over Ajax and Dinamo Zagreb respectively.

The 2020-21 UEFA Europa League is the 50th season of Europe’s secondary club football tournament.

The season culminates with the final at the Stadion Energa Gdańsk in Poland on May 26, 2021.

The winners of the tournament automatically qualify for the 2020-21 Champions League group stage, and earn the right to play against the winners of the 2020-21 Champions League in the 2021 UEFA Super Cup.

Clubs qualify for the competition based on their performance in their national league and cup competitions.
