It is not just the fate of the UEFA Champions League clubs that was decided in Nyon, but also that of the UEFA Europa League 2018-19 club who found out their opponents for the quarterfinals of the competition. The good news for Evertonians is that 8 of those 9 have come at Goodison Park, making the odds of 3/1 for Everton to win good value.
Giroud said: 'I'm 32 but I'm still young. "I'm really very happy for him".
Hudson-Odoi also continued his fine run in the competition with a fourth goal in Europe this season and while Walker thinks he will only get better, Giroud could act as the ideal role-model for him. I have the motivation to carry on.
"But I'm still hungry and I know how much I will miss football after my career". I want more and more.
The summer transfer window coming up is going to be a pivotal moment for Silva to add a few more quality players and the goal next year has to be to qualify for Europe.
Following the match, Giroud was quizzed about whether or not he is content with his current role as a rotational option under Maurizio Sarri. Giroud, however, may yet push for a move away as he searches for first-team opportunities. Willian is the captain for the night while Gonzalo Higuain's absence means a start for Olivier Giroud.
"I am a competitor, I want to play every single game and to be happy on the pitch", he said. But I am not picking the team, the manager makes some choices.
Napoli's passage was rather less straightforward, advancing 4-3 on aggregate against RB Salzburg after falling to a 3-1 defeat in Austria, but both clubs remain on course to fight for the Europa League trophy in Baku on May 29. The target is clearly to win it'. Eintracht Frankfurt's star striker Luka Jovic scored a delicious chip to secure the victory and put them through to the quarter-finals.
