Uefa Cup draw: Tottenham face Sevilla in quarter-finals

103895100 Quarter-final draw
AZ Alkmaar v Werder Bremen
Bayer Leverkusen v Osasuna
Espanyol v Benfica
(Ties to be played on 5 and 12 April)

Semi-final draw
Espanyol or Benfica v AZ Alkmaar or Werder Bremen
Bayer Leverkusen or Osasuna v Sevilla or TOTTENHAM
(Ties to be played 26 April and 3 May)

Favourable draws for English clubs in Europe was never going to last. Following Uefa's best attempts to ease all three English clubs into the semi-finals of the Champions League, the luck has ran out for Tottenham. Spurs will face competition-holders Sevilla in the next round. On current form this should be the final really. The winners of that tie will face either Bayer Leverkusen or Osasuna.

In the other half of the draw, Espanyol - who I fancy as an outside bet for the tournament - take on Benfica, while AZ Alkmaar (fresh from tickling Newcastle's bellies) play Werder Bremen. [Rob Parker]

Don't be too sure, AZ were able to beat Sevilla away and they only just edged through v Donetsk (WTF?), so I think Spurs can take them.

I still fancy them to beat Sevilla, Jay, but I also think it was the toughest draw they could have got.

If Klose can get fit and Diego can get his head back together, I'm still backing Bremen.
