Latest update:

The draw for the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals has produced some delightful posters. Top favorite Liverpool takes on . The still undefeated Bayer Leverkusen has to deal with the West Ham United of Mohammed Kudus and Edson Álvarez, among others. The first legs will take place on April 11, the returns will be played a week later.

AC Milan and AS Roma must decide in an Italian meeting which of the two Serie A teams will advance to the semi-finals. A third Serie A team can also reach the semi-final round.

To achieve this, Atalanta must eliminate Liverpool. A tough challenge. It is a Dutch-tinted poster for Teun Koopmeiners, Mitchell Bakker and Marten de Roon on behalf of Atalanta and Virgil van Dijk, Cody Gakpo and Ryan Gravenberch on behalf of the Reds.

Undefeated Leverkusen escaped twice against Qarabag, but retained its undefeated status. If it wants to extend that series, Xabi Alonso's team must deal with West Ham United. The Hammers recorded an impressive 5-0 win over Freiburg on Thursday – partly thanks to a world-class goal from Kudus.
