Just like the UEFA Champions League, the Europa League returned this week. The action officially kicked off on Aug. 5 as the second leg of six of the eight round of 16 matches are taking place to determine who will make it into the quarterfinals. Notable teams to reach the quarterfinals include Manchester United, Inter Milan, Shakhtar Donetsk and Copenhagen.
Once those round of 16 matchups are decided, the scene shifts to Germany, for the start of the quarterfinals, which will all be played as single-elimination matches as things progress toward the final on Aug. 21. The games will be split among four stadiums throughout the country: Stadion Köln, MSV Arena, Dusseldorf Arena and Arena AufSchalke.
