A brilliant hat-trick from Mislav Oršić secured a stunning comeback win for Dinamo, who lost the opening leg 2-0 and failed to make an impact in the first half.

Slavia claimed a place in the last eight for the second time in three years thanks to a deserved win in Glasgow. Peter Olayinka's header gave them an early advantage and, after Rangers duo Kemar Roofe and Leon Balogun had been sent off in the second half, Nicolae Stanciu's wonderful free-kick sealed the result.

Ajax had done most of the hard work in the first leg, but David Neres' early effort against the run of play ensured that there was no doubt for the Dutch champions. Dušan Tadić grabbed a second from the spot after a handball by Mohamed Ali Camara and Jean-Pierre Nsame had a goal ruled out for the home side as the 2017 finalists made serene progress.
Key stat: Ajax have now won two consecutive away games in the UEFA Europa League, having lost their previous four.

Shakhtar 1-2 Roma (agg: 1-5)

Roma cruised through after completing a comprehensive aggregate victory in Kyiv. Trailing 3-0 from the first leg, Shakhtar needed to be adventurous and Roma goalkeeper Pau López was forced into a string of good saves, yet a close-range header and dinked finish from Borja Mayoral – either side of a Júnior Moraes consolation – made the difference on the night.
Key stat: Mayoral's second-half double took him to seven goals in the Europa League this season.

Key stat: Granada progressed despite losing the second leg for the second consecutive round and have now conceded two or more goals in seven of their last eight competitive away games.
