Fulham's reward for their stunning victory over Juventus is a Europa League quarter-final with German side Wolfsburg.

Roy Hodgson's side recovered from losing the first leg 3-1 and conceding an early goal in the second leg at Craven Cottage to secure a memorable 5-4 aggregate win over the Italian giants.

Today they were drawn to face Bundesliga champions Wolfsburg in the last eight, with the first leg at home and a potential semi-final against either Hamburg or Standard Liege to follow.

In the other quarter-finals, Liverpool take on Portuguese side Benfica with the second leg at Anfield.

The winner of that tie will face the winner of the all-Spanish tie between Valencia and Atletico Madrid.

Liverpool lost the first leg 1-0 to Lille in the previous round but goals from Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres (two) at Anfield last night kept their hopes of silverware this season alive.



The quarter-final draw for the Europa League is as follows:

Fulham v Wolfsburg

Hamburg v Standard Liege

Valencia v Atletico Madrid

Benfica v Liverpool

The first legs will be played on April 1 with the second legs on April 8.

The semi-final draw for the Europa League is as follows:

Hamburg/Standard Liege v Fulham/Wolfsburg

Valencia/Atletico Madrid v Benfica/ Liverpool

The first legs will be played on April 22 and the second legs on April 29.
