  • Europa League

Eintracht Frankfurt has reached the quarterfinals of the Europa League an dis the last Bundesliga team still in an international competition. Adi Hütter’s team completely dominated Inter Milan in a very one-sided game and secured their place in the next round with a 1:0 victory. Luka Jovic scored the deciding goal for Frankfurt.

There are some strong teams remaining in the competition, most notably teams like Chelsea, Arsenal and Napoli but at this point nobody should count out Frankfurt.

  • Champions League draw

The Champions League quarterfinals are set and we have some exciting draws. Manchester United against Barcelona is probably the biggest match-up in the next round. In addition the possible semifinals were also drawn, the winner of Tottenham vs Manchetser City will play the winner of Ajax Amsterdam vs Juventus and the other semifinal will be played between the winners of Manchester United vs Barcelona and Liverpool vs Porto.

Who do you think will go through to the next round?

Daily Buzz: Axel Witsel will be out with an injury against Hertha BSC Berlin so who should replace the Belgian midfielder in the starting line-up? A Julian Weigl-Mario Götze pivot seems likely at this point but Thomas Delaney and Mahmoud Dahoud are other options.
