Roma To Play Sevilla in Europa League final

Sevilla will take on Roma in this year’s Europa League final.

The La Liga side fought back to reach yet another final as substitute Erik Lamela scored with a fabulous header five minutes into extra time to earn a gritty 2-1 win over Juventus on Thursday, securing a 3-2 aggregate victory.

The Spaniards will bid for a record-extending seventh Europa League title when they face AS Roma in the final in Budapest on May 31, after Jose Mourinho’s side drew 0-0 at Bayer Leverkusen to secure a 1-0 aggregate victory in their semi-final.

Juventus, who were held to a 1-1 draw by Sevilla in the first leg, looked on course to reach the final when substitute Dusan Vlahovic scored with a tidy finish in the 65th minute at a raucous Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.

But midfielder Suso leveled six minutes later with a stunning long-range strike to take the game into extra time. Lamela then wrapped up the win when he leaped into a crowded area and sent a towering header into the net to delight the fans.
