The Norwegian team showed no tolerance when they had a 5-1 victory over The Bhoys.

All the remaining Europa League teams won’t have to wait long to find out who’s waiting in the next round as the round of 16 draw takes place TODAY.

Elsewhere, the Champions League final will no longer be held in Russia after the country invaded Ukraine, UEFA announced.

Several new venues are currently under consideration – and Wembley Stadium along with the Spurs’ White Hart Lane complex are being touted as possible alternatives.

Meanwhile, in transfer news, Tammy Abraham ‘hopes to return’ to his childhood club Chelsea in the future, according to reports.

The 24-year-old striker joined Roma in the summer for £34m, linked with legendary Premier League manager Jose Mourinho.

Abraham could get his wish in a year’s time with Chelsea’s £68m buyout option active.

Before Abraham can return to Stamford Bridge, Chelsea are said to be planning to ‘do their best’ to sign Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembele this summer.

The World Cup champion will become a free agent when his contract expires in June, which is expected to lead to an all-out attack from the Blues.

That is according to Spain’s Sport newspaper, who claim the west London side tried to land the winger in January.

And finally, Watford striker Ashley Fletcher is also about to join the New York Red Bulls on loan.

SunSport understands that MLS giants NY Red Bulls are confident of catching up with the former Manchester United and West Ham striker in an interim move.

Head coach Gerhard Struber is understood to be a big fan of the England player as he wants to strengthen his squad.
