The finalists for the 2022/23 UEFA Europa League will be decided! Leverkusen, Roma, Sevilla, and Juventus are all fighting for a ticket to Budapest in what should be an interesting 2nd-leg semifinal.

The 2022/23 UEFA Champions League final has been decided and now it's time for Europe's next best continental club competition to enter the ultimate stage. Thursday, May 18 will see the two finalists for the Europa League get determined as Leverkusen, Roma, Sevilla, and Juventus battle it out for a ticket to the Puskas Arena in Budapest.

The first leg was played last week, which means the curtain will be drawn on the penultimate stage. Given the score lines, neither of these two semifinals are done, which is exciting news for fans of the beautiful game.

The question on everyone's mind is who will move on to the 2022/23 Europa League final? Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming fixtures.

What are the aggregate scorelines from the UEFA Europa League 1st leg semifinals?

  • Leverkusen (0) vs (1) Roma

  • Sevilla (1) vs (1) Juventus


Leverkusen vs Roma

Two capable clubs face off at arguably the worst time as both Leverkusen and Roma are in horrible form. This is particularly true for the hosts, who need to overturn that 1-0 deficit, as the German club have failed to win any of their last four games. In the Bundesliga, Diaby and Co. boast only one win out of five and have thus dropped to seventh, leaving them at risk of missing out on European football altogether next season. Winning the Europa League would earn them a ticket to the UEFA Champions League but Die Werkself will need to improve on their disappointing first-leg performance if they are to even qualify for the final.

Roma, meanwhile, have won only once out of their last six games and haven't tasted victory in Serie A since their 3-0 victory over Udinese over a month ago. As a result, Mourinho's men are in sixth, two points behind AC Milan, and might be forced to settle for UEFA Europa Conference League qualification. However, the Special One is the master of European football and often delivers when needed. Last season, he led the Giallorossi to continental glory, albeit the Europa Conference League, and is a safe bet to repeat this feat.

Sevilla vs Juventus

Two clubs enduring contrasting league seasons face off in the other semifinal. Sevilla, the kings of the UEFA Europa League, are 10th in La Liga but after beating Manchester United in the quarterfinals, the Spanish club are on the brink of another European final. In fact, José Luis Mendilibar's side would have entered the second leg with the advantage had it not been for Juventus' 97th-minute equalizer in the first leg. Nonetheless, with the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium crowd behind them, expect the home side to give the Italian giants a rough test.

Juventus, meanwhile, have overcome a rough start to the season and are currently second in Serie A. While the 15-point deduction penalty still hangs above their head, the Bianconeri are still poised to qualify for the UEFA Champions League as things stand. Nonetheless, Allegri will be keen on getting his hand on silverware and the Europa League is Juventus' only remaining route. The Old Lady came within minutes of losing at home to Sevilla but salvaged a draw. Given that the aforementioned points deduction could return, Juventus might end up needing the Europa League to get back into the Champions League, thus adding extra weight to this fixture.

Who's out for the UEFA Europa League 2nd leg semifinal ties?
