UEFA Europa League 2013, Round of 16 recap: Dramatic late winner for Newcastle; Zenit upset

Stu Forster

It was a wild day for English sides in the Europa League. Tottenham needed extra time, Newcastle won in the dying seconds and Chelsea engineered a two-goal comeback.

The quarterfinals of the Europa League will be set tomorrow after a great day of action to decide the eight participants. The English sides were involved in the greatest drama of the day, and all three managed to advance.

Rubin Kazan 2-0 (2-0) Levante

Valencia's other club did well enough to push Rubin to extra time, but couldn't hold on for penalties. Solomon Rondon and Vladmir Dyadyun sunk the visitors.

Zenit St. Petersburg 1-0 (1-2) FC Basel

While Zenit won on the night, they were unable to overturn their poor result at St. Jakob's Park, as the Swiss side impressively held on to advance on aggregate.

Inter Milan 4-1 (4-4) Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs advance on away goals, after extra time, in an insane match. Click above for a full match report.

Fenerbahce 1-1 (2-1) Viktoria Plzen

A bad defensive error early on led to Salih Ucan putting Fener 2-0 ahead on aggregate. Plzen pulled one back, but couldn't find the second goal they needed to go through.

Bordeaux 2-3 (2-4) Benfica

Thanks for playing, Bordeaux!

Newcastle 1-0 (1-0) Anzhi Makhachkala

A 94th minute goal by Papiss Cisse sent the Magpies through when it appeared that extra time was inevitable at St. James' Park.

Lazio 3-1 (5-1) Stuttgart

I guess crowd trouble does pay! Lazio won in front of an empty stadium.

Chelsea 3-1 (3-2) Steaua Bucharest

Steaua scored an away goal in the first half of this game after an early Chelsea goal, requiring the Blues to score twice. They managed to pull it off. Click above for a full match report.
