A ticket to the Europa League finals sets to activate this weekend between sides Sevilla and Manchester United. The match schedules on Sunday at Cologne with kickoff at 7 pm.
Sevilla made it to the last four courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Wolves in a heated match up. Manchester United held off against an incensed Copenhagen ending in a 1-0 win. Both sides went through thick and thin to finally secure a ticket to the last four—the winner of the clash with proceeds to meet either Inter Milan or Shakhtar Donetsk.
Sevilla has the highest reputation of clinching the Europa League with five record triumphs in the competition. The side has been victorious managing to get the better part of former Coach Jose Mourinho in the competition.
New Villarreal coach Unai Emery was the mastermind behind three successive wins of the Europa League. The side has a bitter taste following their unceremonious exit from last year’s competition courtesy of Slavia Prague in the last 16.
Ole Gunnar might contend with picking a slot in Champions League. A win will mark the start of a new threat in the Premier League. Bruno Fernandez has emerged as the hero for the side since his arrival in January from Sporting Lisbon.

Sevilla Team News
Lopetegui might start with the same starting lineup that got the job done against Wolves in the last eight. Man of the Match Yassin Bounou will start after a penalty save from Jimenez secured a ticket for the side. The defensive pairing of Diego Carlos and Jules Kunde has worked for the side well to this stage of the competition.
Manchester United Team News
Ole Gunnar looks likely to revert to a more experienced lineup without taking any chances given their past history with their opponents. Fred might start on the bench to pave the way for Nemanja Matic alongside Pogba.
