Path to the final

Sevilla, who have the amazing record of winning the Europa League every time they have reached the quarterfinal stage, ‘dropped’ into the competition from the UEFA Champions League and went on to defeat PSV Eindhoven (3-2 on aggregate), Fenerbahce (2-1), Manchester United (5-2) and Juventus (3-2). They are just 90 minutes away from winning the Europa League for a record-extending seventh time (adding to triumphs in 2006, 2007, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2020).

Roma’s path to the final saw them finish second in Group C behind Real Betis, before going on to defeat Red Bull Salzburg (2-1 on aggregate), Real Sociedad (2-0), Feyenoord (4-2) and Bayer Leverkusen (1-0). Last season’s UEFA Europa Conference League champions, the Giallorossi are hoping for continued continental success.

In addition, the winners of this match will earn a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League – regardless of their finishing position in their domestic leagues.

What the teams are saying

Sevilla midfielder Fernando: “It’s been a very strange season, being down there, fighting to not go down, in a very difficult situation. But in two months everything has changed and now there’s euphoria about playing a final.”

Roma striker Tammy Abraham: “When I first arrived here, I told my team-mates I wanted to win trophies. Because they hadn’t won for so long, some of them never believed me. Now they’re seeing that things are coming true. Last season we made it all the way to the [UEFA Europa Conference League] final, we won. This year we’re in another so hopefully we can lift another title soon.”

Key Players

Youssef En-Nesyri – The Moroccan striker has not been prolific in La Liga, but in the Europa League he is a far more dangerous prospect and will  present a massive threat to the Roma defence in Budapest.

Paulo Dybala – The maverick Argentine attacker is already beloved by Roma fans, but would write his name into club legend if he inspires the Giallorossi to a second successive European triumph come May 31.

Head-to-head stats

In head-to-head stats, Sevilla and Roma have met in just one previous match: a round of 16 single-leg tie (due to the effect of Covid-19) in the Europa League in August 2020 which the Spanish side won 2-0 thanks to goals from Sergio Reguilon and Youssef En-Nesyri.

Battles to watch

Jose Luis Mendilibar v Jose Mourinho – Mendilibar has done an amazing job in turning Sevilla’s season around, but he faces a tough opponent in the wily and wizened Mourinho, who is chasing yet another continental title.

Fernando v Nemanja Matic – These two veteran midfielders have defied father time to be outstanding performers for their teams in the ‘engine room’ this term, but only one of them will walk away a Europa League champion from Budapest.

Gonzalo Montiel v Tammy Abraham – It has not been a vintage season for Abraham in goal-scoring terms, but he remains a talisman for Roma and will be a player that the determined Montiel will have to keep a close eye on.
