Roma won that match 1-0 in Tirana to give Jose Mourinho another European trophy.

The draw on Monday pitted the teams who finished second in their Europa League groups with the clubs who were third in the Champions League groups.

AC Milan stayed alive in European competition by beating Newcastle in its final Champions League group game and was rewarded with a two-legged match against Rennes. Milan is a seven-time European champion but has never won the second-tier Europa League or its predecessor, the UEFA Cup.
