West Ham face Lyon and Rangers draw Braga in Europa League quarter-finals

  • West Ham or Lyon to face Barcelona or Frankfurt in semi-final
  • Leicester draw PSV Eindhoven in Europa Conference League

West Ham will play Lyon and Rangers face Braga in the Europa League quarter-finals after avoiding the most daunting-looking opponents in Friday’s draw.

Barcelona will take on Eintracht Frankfurt and RB Leipzig drew Atalanta in the other ties. The winners of the Barcelona-Frankfurt tie will face West Ham or Lyon in the semi-finals.

West Ham beat the record six-time winners, Sevilla, 2-1 on aggregate to reach their first European quarter-final since 1981. David Moyes’s side will have home advantage in the first leg on 7 April, with the return a week later.

Lyon are 10th in Ligue 1, 24 points behind the leaders, Paris Saint-Germain. They beat Porto 2-1 on aggregate to reach this stage, drawing 1-1 at home on Thursday.

Rangers will play away in the first leg against Braga, who are fourth in the Portuguese league – also 24 points off the top – and knocked out Monaco on Thursday. They are managed by Carlos Carvalhal, who has previously been in charge at Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea.

Rangers lost 2-1 at Red Star Belgrade on the same night but progressed 4-2 on aggregate. The Scottish club are in the last eight for the first time since losing the 2008 final to Zenit St Petersburg.

Leicester will meet PSV Eindhoven in the quarter-finals of the Europa Conference League, playing the first leg at home on 7 April and the return a week later. The winners will face Bodø/Glimt or José Mourinho’s Roma, who lost 6-1 to the Norwegian side in the group stage in October. In the other ties, Feyenoord play Slavia Prague and Marseille meet Paok.
