Sevilla FC will take on FC Porto in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League. The Andalusian outfit, who qualified by beating Real Betis Balompié in a penalty shootout on Thursday, will play the first game in the Estadio do Dragão on the 3rd of April.

Ramón Rodríguez 'Monchi' saw it as a positive draw: "It is not a long way to travel and we will have our fans with us". The return match will be played in the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium on the 10th of April.
