UEFA Europa League Round of 16 - Second Leg

Van Damme targets Hamburg victory Anderlecht defender Jelle van Damme is confident his side can overcome a 3-1 deficit against Hamburg and reach their first European quarter-final for 13 years.
The German side took a huge step towards the last eight with a commanding performance in the first leg of this Europa League tie but Van Damme is optimistic they can turn it around at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.
"We still believe completely that we can qualify," he told Sportwereld.
"In Hamburg, we didn't play badly.
"We have good strong players in the side and I didn't think they were particularly good defensively even though they are currently fifth in the Bundesliga." Van Damme believes the support of the home fans and a good start are key to a thrilling night.
He added: "First and foremost, our fans need to encourage us even more than they did (in the last round) against Athletic Bilbao.
"We must score as soon as possible and then work hard for the second.
"Our final pass certainly needs to be better than it was in Hamburg because it let us down at times." Anderlecht will be hoping to have key midfielder Mbark Boussoufa back after a knee injury. He trained with the squad yesterday and Van Damme is desperate for the Moroccan to make it.
"Playing with Boussoufa is very different to not playing with him," he said.
"For me he is Anderlecht's best player. He provides creativity and with one move can make the difference, be it a dribble, a cross or a free-kick.
"Anderlecht doesn't depend only on Boussoufa but he gives us extra hope." Hamburg coach Bruno Labbadia expects a "tough opponent" with his main selection headache surrounding striker Ruud van Nistelrooy.
Labbadia has taken a cautious approach with the 33-year-old following his move from Real Madrid and now has to decide whether to play him from the start in the Belgian capital.
His assistant Eddy Sozer said: "The last two weeks have been very intense for him.
"Ruud needs time to rest his legs a little.
"But it's a fine line whether you play him or not. He is a very important player and this is a very important game.

Hamburg through despite defeat A goal 15 minutes from time from Mladen Petric sealed Hamburg's place in the last eight of the Europa League despite a 4-3 loss at Anderlecht on the night.
The Germans had appeared to be cruising through with the game goalless approaching half-time before it sprang to life with three goals in as many minutes.
Jerome Boateng put Hamburg 4-1 ahead in the tie in the 42nd minute but Romelu Lukaku headed home to pull one back and Matias Suarez then converted an injury-time penalty.
Marcell Jansen restored Hamburg's two-goal aggregate lead but Anderlecht responded through Lucas Biglia before Mbark Boussoufa, back from a knee injury, made it 5-5 on aggregate.
However, Petric struck on 75 minutes to break the home side's resistance.
Early on the game offered little in terms of clear-cut chances, with Frank Rost untested in the Hamburg goal until the 34th minute when he dealt with Ondrej Mazuch's shot from the right.
Anderlecht were putting Bruno Labbadia's side under little pressure and the match was devoid of creative spark until just before the break.
Hamburg appeared to put the tie beyond doubt when Boateng sent a right-footed shot into the top corner three minutes before the break.
However, the hosts pulled one back two minutes later when Boussoufa's cross from the right was headed home from close range by Lukaku.
Ariel Jacobs' side then rounded off a remarkable spell when Suarez coolly converted a penalty after he was fouled by Boateng.
Such a breathless end to the first half was followed by a tentative start to the second period until Hamburg restored their two-goal aggregate lead.
Ruud van Nistelrooy sent in a cross from the right for Marcell Jansen to convert but again the Germans could not hold onto their lead and Anderlecht restored their lead on the night five minutes later when Biglia scored from the centre of the penalty area.
Just seven minutes later and the hosts were back in it, Boussoufa slotting home Lukaku's left-wing cross from the six-yard box to put Anderlecht 4-2 ahead on the night and making it 5-5 on aggregate.
