Europa League: Quarter Final, who do we want?


Eight Times

Recommended Posts


I was gonna say anyone but Spuds, would rather they just get the hardest draws possible and hopefully someone else knocks them out, because i'm not entirely confident we would beat them.

If I had to order my preferences

Basel

Newcastle

Benfica

Rubin

Fenerbahce

Lazio

Spuds

Really any of those top 4 i'd be happy with provided we don't have our away leg in that week where we play 4 games in 8 days. I think Spuds and Lazio are the teams to beat and would be delighted if they got drawn together, and I don't really fancy a trip to Turkey as it's always an incredibly difficult and intimidating place to go to.

That being said I also don't fancy a trip to Rubin who knocked Atletico out and who are even more east than Moscow. A trip to Rubin or Turkey in that 4 games in 8 days period would be brutal.

So yeah, any of those top 3 will do me.

Regardless who we get, pray we get a home first leg, because we have a game on the Saturday (Southampton), Monday (United), Thursday (Europa) and Sunday (Sunderland), 4 games in 8 days.

If we have to go away to Turkey or Russia in that period, lol.

They won the league a couple of seasons ago as I recall, I also seem to remember Martins playing for them. They have Salomon Rondon, M'Vila and our very own Gokhan Tore on their books. I would imagine they will be the best side we have faced so far in the Europa League and we're certainly going to need a convincing home leg victory to go through.

Well, this is awkward!
