Arsenal was given a difficult assignment in the Europa League quarter-finals after being drawn against Napoli, while Chelsea will face Slavia Prague.

In the other two draws, c & # 39; is an all-Spanish draw with Villareal winning in Valencia, while the three-time winner of the Benfica will face the Eintracht Frankfurt.

The first phases of the ties will be held April 11, with legs back seven days later, April 18th.

Given that Arsenal and Chelsea were both led to play at home in the second round, the UEFA regulation means that the Arsenal draw with Napoli will now be reversed, with the Gunners hosting the Italian team instead in the first leg .

Napoli, which is chasing its first European title since Diego Maradona's team won the old UEFA Cup in 1989, is currently second in Serie A, 18 points behind leaders Juventus.

They went to the Europa League after failing to qualify from a Champions League group that included Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool. They finished with the same total score as Jurgen Klopp's team but finished third in the group due to the goals scored.

The Blues beat the round of 16 with a total victory of 8-0 over Dynamo Kiev.

The Arsenal will face Villarreal or Valencia in the semifinals if they beat Napoli. The opponents in the Chelsea semi-final will be Eintracht Frankfurt or Benfica if they overtake Slavia Prague.
