#UELdraw: Arsenal Battle Russia’s CSKA, Atletico Face Sporting


Arsenal will welcome Russian giants CSKA Moscow in the quarter finals of the Europa League. The Gunners were 5-1 victors over Italian side AC Milan in the last 16. The Premier League has been tipped as favourites to lift the trophy but will have to prove their mettle against CSKA Moscow who qualified for this stage at Olympique Lyonnais' expense on away goal.

In other draws, Spanish big boys Atletico Madrid will do battle with Portuguese powerhouse Sporting CP. Atletico made mincemeat of Lokomotiv Moscow to qualify and have also been tipped to emerge champions.  The last time they met Sporting, they won the competition in 2009/10.

German side RB Leipzig will play against Olympique de Marseille while Lazio battle Red Bull Salzburg, who knocked out Borussia Dortmund.

The first and second legs will played on April 5 and 12 respectively.
