EUROPA LEAGUE - Ro16: Dynamo Kyiv hammer Everton, Fiorentina breeze past Roma as Wolfsburg dump Inter

Everton are out of the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League after copping a hiding at the hands of Dynamo Kyiv on Thursday night.

The Toffees won the Round of 16 first leg over the Ukrainian side 2-1 last week but were put back in their place courtesy of a 5-2 hammering in the Eastern European nations capital.

Romelu Lukaku and Phil Jagielka both scored for Roberto Martinez's men but it did nothing to halt the flow produced by Sergei Rebrov's side who had the likes of Andriy Yarmolenko, Miguel Veloso and Oleh Husyev to thank.

Dynamo pulled off a 6-4 aggregate win to move safely through to the quarter-finals of Europe's second tier club competition where they will join Fiorentina who cruised past Italian rivals Roma.

Vincenzo Montella's Viola netted three times in the opening 22 minutes in Rome to eventually win 3-0 on the night and 4-1 on aggregate.

Fiorentina's Serie A foes Inter Milan, however, are out of the competition after succumbing to Wolfsburg 2-1 at the San Siro.

The German side saluted 3-1 in the initial bout to come away from Milan with a 5-2 collective triumph to keep the Bundesliga's hopes alive.

In other Round of 16 results, Napoli got past Dynamo Moscow 3-1 on aggregate following a scoreless second leg in Russia, Zenit Saint Petersburg edged Torino 2-1 overall despite losing 1-0 in Turin, Sevilla accounted for Spanish adversaries Villarreal 2-1 at home to win 5-2 on aggregate as Club Brugge breezed past Besiktas in Istanbul 3-1 to also record a 5-1 collective victory.

And in a dramatic encounter in Amsterdam, Ajax were unable to fly the flag for Holland with Dnipro nicking a goal on the road in the 2-1 extra-time result to get through on the away-goal rule after last week's 1-0 home win.

The draw for the final eight will take place on Friday, March 20 with the first leg of the quarter-finals to be played on April 16 and the second legs on April 23.
