The draw for the quarter-finals of the Europa League Conference took place on Friday 17 March at UEFA headquarters in Nyon (Switzerland). After its two victories against Sheriff Tiraspol, OGC Nice is the only French representative on the European scene. The coastal club will face FC Basel, with the first leg in Switzerland (April 13). The Aiglons inherit an affordable draw on paper but will meet, in case of qualification in the semifinals, one of the winners of the bill that opposes Lech Poznan to Fiorentina.

Elsewhere, competition favorites West Ham will take on Belgian club La Gantoise, while Dutch side AZ Alkmaar have inherited Anderlecht. The return matches will be played on 20 April.
