After dispatching Greek champions Olympiakos Piraeus in the round of 16 with a 5-2 aggregate scoreline, Beşiktaş have been paired with Olympique Lyonnais  in today’s UEFA Europa League quarter final draws.

As per usual the draw took place in Nyon Switzerland following the UEFA Champions League draw earlier on the day. Beşiktaş have reached the quarter final of the Europa League for the second time in their history, should they edge out Olympique Lyonnais they’ll play their first ever European semi final.

The first leg will take place on Thursday the 13th of April in France while the return leg will take place a week later on the 20th of April at the Vodafone Arena.

This the first time these two sides meet in an official capacity in European club competition.
