Europa League draw: West Ham vs Lyon; Barcelona could await

kbRLz_rEc9_Q
As the Champions League enters the quarterfinal stage, Joe Prince-Wright, Andy Edwards and Nicholas Mendola handicap the remaining field, from Man City and Liverpool as favorites to which underdogs may surprise.

West Ham United will be favored to reach the Europa League final if it gets past a stiff quarterfinal challenge from French mainstays Lyon.

The Irons will have to fend off Ligue 1 standouts Lyon to reach the semifinal round, where either Barcelona or Eintracht Frankfurt would await David Moyes’ men.

The other side of the bracket will see two USMNT players -- perhaps one should be considered an alum -- as James Sands’ Rangers tangle with Braga, while Tyler Adams and RB Leipzig gets a very difficult quarterfinal task in Serie A powers Atalanta.

There’s little doubt that Braga got the best draw and Rangers the second-best as the Portuguese side and their Scottish opponents were the weakest clubs left in the competition.
