20 March 2015, 16:02

Nyon - Holders Sevilla will have to win in Russia to keep their defence on track after the Spanish side were drawn to play Zenit St Petersburg in the Europa League quarter-finals on Friday in Nyon, Switzerland.

Sevilla, who crushed domestic rivals Villarreal 5-2 on aggregate to reach the last eight, have met the 2008 winners four times including a quarter-final triumph in 2006 when they went on to win the UEFA Cup.

The first leg will be in Sevilla.

In-form Bundesliga side Wolfsburg host Napoli in the first leg of their last-eight matchup while Dynamo Kiev await the second Italian side Fiorentina.

Sevilla (ESP) v Zenit St Petersburg (RUS)
