How does the Europa League draw work?
The draw for the Europa League quarter-final is an open or free draw, which means that there are no restrictions such as seeding or country protection. That means we could potentially see Arsenal paired with Manchester United or Roma versus Juventus - in the event that they advance, of course.
The four quarter-final ties will be numbered one to four for the purposes of the semi-final draw that will follow immediately afterwards. Then, a draw will be held to determine which side of the draw will enjoy 'home' status in the final.
