A day after the last of the English teams was eliminated from the UEFA Champions League, two Premier League teams rose to the occasion to keep the league represented in the Europa League.

Liverpool posted a dominant 4-1 victory against Benfica to score a 5-3 aggregate victory and book a place into the semifinals. Over in Germany, Fulham scored a 1-0 victory at Wolfsburg to secure its own semifinal place.

Liverpool will now take on Atletico Madrid, which reached the semis on away goals after tying Valencia, 0-0, at home. Fulham will face Hamburg, which disposed of Standard Liege, 3-1, to one step closer to playing in the Europa League Final in its own home stadium.
