Sevilla vs AS Roma Preview and Prediction.
Only a handful of crucial games remain in the 2022–23 season before the curtains are drawn on it. One such contest will take place on Wednesday night at the Puskas Arena in the UEFA Europa League final between Sevilla and AS Roma.
Sevilla’s 2022–23 season has been strange, and the team may not finish in the top half of La Liga. However, they will be pleased with the outcome given how long they spent in the relegation zone. Regarding Los Nervionenses’ performance in Europe, they came in third in Group G of the UEFA Champions League, behind Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City.
Despite their defensive flaws, the Andalusian giants have excelled in the UEFA Europa League. Prior to defeating Fenerbahce, Manchester United, and Juventus in the three knockout rounds, they defeated PSV Eindhoven in the playoffs. AS Roma placed second in Group C of the UEFA Europa League and then defeated Red Bull Salzburg to advance to the Round of 16.
Jose Mourinho once again displayed his European pedigree as the Giallorossi easily defeated Real Sociedad, Feyenoord, and Bayer Leverkusen. Roma’s Serie A season, however, is not going well as a seven-game losing streak has moved them to sixth place and eliminated them from top-four contention. The Europa League is therefore their best route to the Champions League for the following season.
Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Bono; Navas, Bade, Gudelj, Telles; Fernando, Rakitic; Ocampos, Torres, Gil; En-Nesyri
Probable Lineup (3-4-2-1): Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez; Celik, Cristante, Matic, Spinazzola; Pellegrini, El Shaarawy; Abraham
Sevilla 0-1 AS Roma
The contest will feature two European powerhouses who have never lost in a continental championship final. While Jose Mourinho has never lost a trophy game in a European competition, Sevilla has a spotless record in the finals of the Europa League. Both parties will therefore have no room for error when given the chance to make history.
