Barcelona seal Europa League quarterfinal spot with comeback win over Galatasaray

Baku, March 18, AZERTAC

Barcelona came from behind to beat Galatasaray 2-1 on Thursday evening and booked their spot in the UEFA Europa League quarterfinals, according to Anadolu Agency.

Galatasaray captain Marcao headed in from a corner kick to break the deadlock in the 28th minute.

A brilliant solo goal from Pedri, who beat two defenders in the penalty area before slotting a low shot into the net, wiped out the lead less than 10 minutes later.

Four minutes into the second period, Pena made two good blocks to deny Barcelona, but could do nothing as the second dropped to Aubameyang, who found the net from six yards out.

That proved to be the winner for Barcelona, who qualified for the quarterfinals with a 2-1 aggregate win.

Rangers, Atalanta and Braga also booked their places in the Europa League quarterfinals on Thursday evening.

Europa League Round of 16 results are as follows:

Crvena zvezda - Rangers: 2-1 (aggregate 2-4)

Monaco - Braga: 1-1 (aggregate 1-3)

Bayer Leverkusen - Atalanta: 0-1 (aggregate 2-4)
