Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says he's pleased with this season's UEFA Europa League quarter-final draw.
The Magpies have been tied with Portuguese giants Benfica, with the first leg being at Stadium of Light in Lisbon on April 4th.
Pardew said: "They're top of the league. They're going well, and it's a fantastic history. Perhaps even better than our own."
The Newcastle boss added that he was glad his side avoided Premier League rivals Chelsea and Tottenham in the draw.
