Juve, who appear well on course to defend their Serie A title, are targeting a European and domestic double after seeing off Fiorentina in the last 16, and will make the relatively short trip across the French border for the first leg on April 3, returning to Turin a week later.

Juve's domestic dominance makes them the clear favourites in Europe's secondary competition, and the knowledge that the final will be played at their Juventus Stadium has given them added motivation from the start.

Last year's beaten finalists Benfica, top of the Portuguese Liga, have been partnered with AZ Alkmaar, whose performances to date in the Europa League have provided some relief from a difficult campaign which has left them down in seventh in the Dutch Eredivisie.

Basle, who reached last year's semi-finals, must beat Spanish side Valencia in order to repeat what was their best-ever run in European competition, while the final tie is an intriguing match-up between Porto and Sevilla.

Europa League quarter-final draw:

AZ Alkmaar v Benfica

Lyon v Juventus

Basel v Valencia

Porto v Sevilla

The first legs will be played on April 3 with the second legs on April 10.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
