2012-13 Europa League Quarter-Final Draw
Chelsea, last year's Champions League winners, will meet Russian side Rubin Kazan, while Tottenham face Swiss club FC Basel after Friday's draw.
Chelsea v Rubin Kazan
Tottenham v FC Basel
Fenerbahçe v Lazio
Benfica v Newcastle
First legs to be played on 4 April and second legs to be played on 11 April.
In each of the previous two campaigns in which a country has had three sides in the quarter-finals, one went on to lift the trophy – FC Porto in 2010/11 and Club Atlético de Madrid last May and they both beat domestic rivals in the final.
The five other teams will have something to say about that, though.
FINAL : Amsterdam Arena, 15th May 2013
