Wolverhampton Wanderers held Olympiacos at bay on Thursday to reach the Europa League quarterfinals and maintain hopes of an all-Premier League semifinal later this month.
Raul Jimenez converted his sixth penalty of the season and 27th goal in all competitions to give Wolves a 1-0 win (2-1 on aggregate), keeping them on a collision course with Manchester United.
In the remaining last-16 fixture, FC Basel advanced with a 1-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt, having already built a 3-0 aggregate lead in the first leg back in March.
Wolves will now face Sevilla in a one-off quarterfinal on Aug. 11 in Duisburg. Basel will meet Shakhtar Donetsk on the same day in Gelsenkirchen.
All Europa League games will be played in Germany due to COVID-19 restrictions. The tournament will follow a single-elimination format, up to and including the final on Aug. 21.
The quarterfinal bracket reads as follows:
- Inter Milan vs. Bayer Leverkusen (Aug. 10)
- Manchester United vs. Copenhagen (Aug. 10)
- Wolverhampton vs. Sevilla (Aug. 11)
- Shakhtar Donetsk vs. FC Basel (Aug. 11)
