The UEFA Europa League quarterfinal draw is upon us and you can catch all the action from the House of European Footbal in Nyon, Switzerland, on CBS Sports HQ.

There are now only eight teams left with Tottenham Hotspur dumped out of contention following a 3-0 extra-time loss to Dinamo Zagreb, who lost their manager Zoran Mamic to prison this week for fraud. However, Spurs' north London rivals Arsenal are through despite losing 1-0 to Olympiacos at home in the second leg. As for their Premier League counterparts Manchester United, they dispatched AC Milan and former striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic thanks to a clutch second-half goal from Paul Pogba in the second leg.
