Happy Not To Draw Arsenal - Chelsea Director

16 March 2019

That's all for today! "First of all, because it means we are in the final and I am happy with that", Sarri said.

Olivier Giroud scored his first hat-trick - and a flawless one to boot - for Chelsea as the west London club progressed serenely into the quarter- finals of the Europa League.

While Napoli are 18 points off Juventus at the summit of Serie A and have not been able to challenge the Bianconeri like they did last season, Carlo Ancelotti has attempted to nurture an evolution of "Sarriball" since he took over at the club.

"In the second leg against Rennes, we were in a hard position and managed to find our way out".

Despite Arsenal coming out of the hat second, this time the first leg of the quarter-finals will be at the Emirates on April 11, with the Gunners heading to Napoli a week later, because of a potential clash with Chelsea's tie against Slavia Prague.

The draw will originally match teams up for the quarter-finals next month.

The remaining tie pits Benfica against Eintracht Frankfurt, with the victor facing Chelsea or Slavia Prague in the semi-finals.

Huong's lawyer Hisyam Teh Poh Teik was more blunt, telling the court the decision was " perverse ". Aisyah and Huong have said they thought they were taking part in a prank for a TV show.

Napoli's passage was rather less straightforward, advancing 4-3 on aggregate against RB Salzburg after falling to a 3-1 defeat in Austria, but both clubs remain on course to fight for the Europa League trophy in Baku on May 29.

Sale Marchetti, secretary general, is in control of the draw.

An all-Spanish pairing sees Villarreal play Valencia, and three-time runner-up Benfica will face Eintracht Frankfurt.

Victory on Merseyside would be a major boost to their hopes of finishing in the Champions League places, then, although it would take a win by six clear goals for them to end the day in fourth.
