Fulham drawn with Wolfsburg

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

• Europa League draw in full
• Rafa ready for tough Benfica

• Villa disappointed with Spanish tie

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.

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. Valencia will be at home for the first leg on April 1, before a return trip to Madrid seven days later.

Their last trip to the Vicente Calderon was notable not only for the thumping they received at the hands of hot-and-cold Atletico, but also for a controversial refereeing decision, when Alfonso Perez Burrull gave a penalty and sent off Carlos Marchena after consulting with the fourth official.

Valencia, who won the tournament as the UEFA Cup in 2004, progressed following a 4-4 draw at 2009 finalists Werder Bremen last night, while Atletico saw off Sporting Lisbon.

It is unlikely to get any easier for whichever side progresses as they will face the winners of the tie between Benfica and Liverpool.

The Reds, UEFA Cup winners in 2001, were handed a trip to Portugal as their reward for seeing off Lille on Thursday night. The Europa League is their only remaining chance of silverware after a disappointing Premier League season.

German champions Wolfsburg will hope to avoid the fate that befell Juve in their tie against Fulham.

For the first leg, they will travel to Craven Cottage where the Bianconeri were last night subjected to a humiliating 4-1 defeat by Roy Hodgson's men, who will make their first appearance in a European quarter-final.

The winners of that tie will next face either Hamburg or Standard Liege, with a potential all-German semi-final in the offing.
