  5. Post update

    Chelsea’s 8-0 aggregate win over Dynamo Kiev was their second biggest European victory over two legs. Number one was a 21-0 aggregate win over Jeunesse Hautcharage in the first round of the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1971-72.

  6. Post update

    Slavia Prague knock out Unai Emery's old side. Sevilla are out.

  7. Post update

    Slavia have a corner deep into injury time and they're taking their time.

  8. Post update

    That's 6-5 on aggregate.

  9. Post update

    SCENES IN PRAGUE. Slavia Prague are seconds away from dumping out Sevilla.

    Simon Kjaer makes a huge mess of clearing an Ibrahim Traore shot off the line and helps put it into his own net.

    Sevilla had been set to go through on away goals.

    SMS Message: What happens if 2 of the teams that finish in our top 4 win the CL & Europa league? Where do extra CL place for next season go for EL winners if they qualify via the league? from Disho

    It won't go to an English team. France would get a third team in the group stages instead of having to go through a qualifier as the next highest ranked league.

  11. 'A good evening'

    Arsenal 3-0 Rennes (4-3 agg)

    Arsenal

    Arsenal boss Unai Emery to BT Sport: "It was a good evening. 3-0 is good for us.

    "We had chances to score the fourth goal and be more calm. I'm very proud of the supporters and players. We worked very well this week. We can be happy.

    "We were very competitive over 90 minutes but can do better. We could have had more control of the ball. It's easy to say here instead of on the pitch."

  12. Post update

    Benfica surely heading into the quarter-finals, Alejandro Grimaldo has given them a 3-0 lead over 10-man Dinamo Zagreb (3-1 agg).

    SMS Message: This just reiterates how good the English game is and where we are going. I'm a Liverpool fan but six English teams through to the next round of Europe's elite football. I'm just a little disappointed about Celtic, any who - fab result for every English team from Cyril, North East

    SMS Message: I think Arsenal, Chelsea and Napoli are all hoping to avoid each other in the draw tomorrow. Good to see all the English teams progress in Europe, plenty of work ahead though. from Matt in Leicester.

  14. 'We're showing we're good enough'

    Arsenal 3-0 Rennes (4-3 agg)

    Arsenal goalscorer Ainsley Maitland-Niles, speaking to BT Sport: "It was fantastic [to score] and a great feeling to go 2-0 up so early.

    "We're showing that we're good enough as a team. We have great spirit and we're all fighting for each other."

  17. Elsewhere in Europe

    Franco Vazquez's header put Sevilla in front in extra time at Slavia Prague. But Mick van Buren has just levelled matters up for Slavia Prague.

    The score is now 3-3 on the night and 5-5 on aggregate.

    As things stand Sevilla are going through on away goals.

  18. 'The mask represents me'

    Arsenal 3-0 Rennes (4-3 agg)

    Arsenal's two-goal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, talking to BT Sport: "I missed two chances to close the game but the most important thing is that we won and everybody is happy and proud."

    On the physical nature of the game: "Rennes were a bit nervous and angry as well but that's football sometimes and it can happen like that."

    On his goal celebration: "I needed a mask which represents me and that's the Black Panther. In Gabon we call the national team the Panthers!"

    The Time Worrier: Why is donning a superhero mask a bookable offence? What's the specific law relating to that? Maybe the ref prefers the DC Universe?

  20. Post update

    Rennes edged the stats in the second half, 51.1% possession, eight shots - but they never really felt like pegging back Arsenal.
