Sevilla will face Serie A’s Lazio in the third round of the Europa League on Wednesday. Sevilla scored 18 goals in an undefeated march, but Lazio was ranked second with third and third place. La Liga’s other three teams have faced tough competitors, including Valencia meeting former European champions Celtic, Villarreal, Portugal’s Sporting and Betis, and France’s Lenin.
Inter Milan, one of the teams that dropped out of the competition after third place in the Champions League, will be playing Rapid Vienna and Napoli. Napoli was also eliminated from the first competition in FC Zurich. We were disappointed with the Champions League elimination, but we are now ready for a very good publicity in the Europa League,” said Javier Zanetti, Vice President.
The two English Premier League teams were able to face winter conditions but maintained a relatively straightforward relationship. Arsenal play against Belarusian champion BATE Borisov. Chelsea will visit Malmo and have a away game in the second week of February. Elsewhere, Benfica defeated Galatasaray, Frankfurt Aintracht, Shakhtar Donetsk, Zenit St. Petersburg and Fenerbahçe.
