Sevilla FC’s road to the UEFA Europa League Final

Sevilla FC has become synonymous with success in the UEFA Europa League, forging an indomitable legacy in the competition. With a fiery passion and relentless determination, the club has hoisted the coveted trophy aloft on multiple occasions. Their unrivalled prowess and tactical finesse have seen them navigate through intense battles, displaying unwavering resilience. The players, adorned in their iconic white and red jerseys, showcase technical brilliance and teamwork that often leaves opponents in awe. Sevilla FC’s ability to rise to the occasion in pressure-filled moments sets them apart, earning them the reputation of being a force to be reckoned with in European football. Their journey in the Europa League continues to captivate fans worldwide, eagerly awaiting the next chapter in their remarkable story. This will be their 7th UEFA Europa League final, having won the competition no less than six times. They are the experts…

This season Sevilla FC only lost two European matches and got into the groove in the quarter-final stages, where they faced Manchester United. It was the home side who took a 2-0 lead, but one should know by now that Sevilla, in this competition, should never be written off. Two late own goals levelled the score, and United were then flattened 3-0 in Seville. It was clear, Sevilla FC were going for it again. The semi-finals saw them paired against Juventus, and it was a 95th-minute strike by Erik Lamela that took them to the final in a 3-2 aggregate scoreline.

This side is resilient and always hungry, so watch out AS Roma fans.

AS Roma’s road to the UEFA Europa League Final

While Sevilla FC are the experts, AS Roma’s manager Jose Mourinho is himself a cup specialist too. He is no stranger to European silverware and having won the UEFA Europa Conference League last season, he’s looking to go one further this term.


AS Roma have lost four European matches this season and progression to this final seemed unlikely. But one thing you can count on is that a Jose Mourinho side simply never gives up, and a cup tie is a cup tie – meaning a good solid 90-minute leg can make all the difference. Their defining moment was how they handled the first leg Play-Off final defeat at Salzburg. Nicolás Capaldo’s 88th-minute goal was celebrated wildly in Austria, but a calm Mourinho was not to be phased. His side roared back in the second leg, winning 2-0. It was then onwards and upwards as Mourinho was shaping his side up for an epic end to the season. They topped Feyenoord in the second leg of their quarter-final, despite losing the first leg again, overcame Bayern Leverkusen 1-0 on aggregate in the semi-finals and now face a determined Sevilla FC side looking to dominate this competition once again.

These two sides are extremely well matched up, and in a final, literally, anything can happen!
