The Europa League’s final four has been decided, with some intriguing potential ties as sides attempt to get to the final in Warsaw on May 27th.
Rafael Benitez’s Napoli made it through with an enterprising 2-2 home draw against the Bundesliga’s second placed side Wolfsburg. The Italian side had already set the Germans a mountain to climb though, with a ruthless 4-1 win away from home and another Europa League victory could potentially be Benitez’s final act as Napoli boss.
The semi-finals could throw up an all Serie A tie as Tottenham’s victors Fiorentina made it through with a 2-0 home win over Dynamo Kiev, who humbled Everton in Ukraine. La Viola fared better in the east after managing to pick up a credible 1-1 draw which contributed to a 3-1 aggregate win.
Dnipro made it into their first ever European semi-final too, after a tight 1-0 win at home against Belgian side Club Brugge. A 0-0 draw in Belgium had left the tie in the balance, but the Ukrainians did just enough to seal their passage through.
The tie of the round though, came in Saint Petersburg as the holders Sevilla edged past Zenit 4-3 on aggregate in a tie which culminated in a breathless 2-2 draw in Russia.
