Liverpool’s last Europa League crown came in 2001, and with Jurgen Klopp‘s side not in Premier League title contention, it will likely be the team’s biggest goal for the remainder of this season.

La Liga will be well-represented by Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla, who will meet in the final eight. Sevilla has gone on to win the title four times after reaching the quarterfinals.

Additionally, Villareal-Sparta Prague and Braga-Shakhtar Donetsk rounds out the action.

The matches will be played on April 7 and April 14.
