Sevilla and Juventus to reconvene

Sevilla and Juventus are looking to battle for their spot in the Finals of the Europa League, as they ended their first leg in a 1-1 draw. Although that match ended in draw, it gives both Sevilla and Juventus the confidence coming into this game. Juventus are aiming for a qualification in the Finals, as they last entered the Finals of the Europa League during the 1994-95 season. As for Sevilla, qualifying in the Finals of the Europa League is not new for them. In fact, they won the title during the 2019-20 season, so they are used in winning the title. Despite that advantage, Juventus will not get intimidated by the good momentum of their opponent. This meeting will be hosted by Sevilla on May 19, 2023, at 3:00 AM (GMT+8).

These two teams have played five European games, and it was the visitors who has the narrow advantage. They won two of those five European games, as opposed to the hosts’ one victory, while the remaining two ended in draw. However, when it comes to history, the hosts is the only second team to eliminate the visitors. Additionally, they are doing well in their knockout matches, as they are unbeaten in their last nine knockout games in the league. The visitors on the other hand are not doing well in their road games. In fact, they only managed to win two of their last 17 games against a Spanish opponent. Additionally, this may also be the first time in six years they would qualify in a European final.

Juventus on the other hand is a team who is sitting at the second of the league table with 69 points. Despite their slow start this season, they were able to bounce back and be impressive in their recent matches. In fact, they have come so far this season, after their poor start. Just like their opponent, they are also from a dominating win. They eased past Cremonense in a 2-0 win, that gives them a good momentum here. Coming into this important match, they are hopeful that this win would give them the confidence to achieve similar result. This season, Juventus had a strong resurgence under their manager and aiming for a trophy in this contest.

It is just unfortunate that they will be without Paul Pogba in this important match, after suffering a thigh injury on their last match. Along with him were Mattia De Sciglio, and Leonardo Bonucci, who are also absent in this game.
