Europa League Preview – Round of 16 | Second legs

The Europa League last eight will be decided on Thursday with the second legs of the last 16 clashes taking place.

Favourites Chelsea already have one foot in the quarter-finals after their 3-0 win over Dynamo Kiev in the first leg.

But the other Premier League contender Arsenal have it all to do, as they trail 3-1 to French side Rennes.

Napoli, considered second favourites, are already well on their way to the next round as they take a 3-0 lead to Salzburg to take on Red Bull.

Benfica need to come from behind if they want to progress as they host Dinamo Zagreb, trailing 1-0 from the first leg.

Inter Milan will be hoping to progress as they welcome Eintracht Frankfurt at the San Siro, following a goalless draw in Germany.

Sevilla face a tough task at Slavia Prague after being held to a 2-2 draw in Spain, but Valencia will be hopeful of progressing in Russia – holding a 2-1 lead.

Villarreal will also be confident of knocking out Russian opposition as they lead 3-1 against Zenit.

We run through every game including predictions from former England, Crystal Palace and Tottenham midfielder Andy Gray, our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey and BoyleSports’ Lawrence Lyons.
