The Bayer Leverkusen of former Ajax coach Peter Bosz and former Ajax player Daley Sinkgraven is almost certain of a place in the quarterfinals. The German club will play the return of the eighth finals in-house against Rangers FC on Thursday-evening. Just before the corona crisis, Bayer Leverkusen managed to win 1-3 in Scotland and thus Bosz and his men are already with one leg in the quarterfinals.
The first leg between Sevilla FC and AS Roma did not go through before the corona crisis and so the eighth final between these two teams will be decided on one game on Thursday-evening. Sevilla FC has to do without Nemanja Gudelj. The Serbian former Ajax player was tested positive for the coronavirus last week and is therefore not among them.

On Wednesday, the Europa League resumed with the eighth finals. FC Copenhagen, the club of former Ajax players Nicolai Boilesen in Viktor Fischer, settled in the return with Istanbul Basaksehir, who had won the first game 1-0. With Boilesen in the base and Fischer not in the match selection, FC Copenhagen convincingly won 3-0.
Manchester United had already won 0-5 in the first game with LASK Linz and therefore did not really have to work on Wednesday evening. Although LASK still took the lead, Manchester United turned this deficit into a 2-1 victory. Timothy Fosu-Mensah had a starting place at Manchester United and played 84 minutes.
The Internazionale of Christian Eriksen played against Getafe CF on Wednesday-evening. These teams have not met before and so this eighth final was about one game. Without Eriksen in the base, Inter took the lead after more than half an hour due to a goal from Romelu Lukaku. Former Ajax player Eriksen, who came in after 82 minutes, decided the game shortly after his raid with the liberating 2-0. This was also the final score.
