The first leg schedule of the UEFA Europa League 2021-22 quarter-final will begin with RB Leipzig taking on Atalanta on Thursday, April 7. The match will start at 10:15 PM IST.
Leipzig and Atalanta, who alongside Barcelona are the only remaining Champions League group stage third-placed teams in the UEL knockout phase, will play in their first-ever competitive match at the Red Bull Arena.
FC Barcelona, who play their first Europa League knockout match since 2000-01, will travel to the Waldstadion to face Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Europa League 2021-22 quarter-final first leg tie.
The Blaugrana are currently favourites to win the competition and hope to continue their revitalised form under Xavi when they take on Oliver Gasner’s Frankfurt.
The most entertaining fixture of the UEFA Europa League 2021-22 quarter-finals will be West Ham vs Lyon. West Ham, who reached the knockouts stage of a European competition for the first time in their history as they knocked out six-time winners Sevilla in the Round of 16, will host French giants Lyon at the London Stadium.
While David Moyes’ Hammers look to use the home advantage to take a sizeable lead in the match aggregate, Lyon are likely to make things difficult for the English side given the former are on a run of five straight away victories in UEFA competition.
The last UEL quarter-final matchup sees Braga cross swords with Scottish champions Rangers. The sides, unlike the other quarter-finalists, have met in the past with the Rangers winning both the meetings.
