The draw for the 2021/22 Europa League quarter-finals and the remaining knockout fixtures took place on Friday, producing some mouth-watering ties.

 Clubs discovered their fates on Friday afternoon at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, for the Europa League quarter-finals, semi-finals, and the final itself.

Unlike the Europa League last-16 draw, UEFA placed the remaining eight clubs in a ‘free’ draw. That meant there was no seeding or country protection, allowing anyone to face any team no matter what.

The first team drawn plays its first match at home, against the second team drawn.
