Sahtior vs Sevilla – Europa League – 28.04.2016

Shakhtar lost the championship and the mathematical point of view, after the last round earned only a draw. It may still qualify directly into the Champions League next season if he wins Europa League trophy now. In the quarterfinals of the competition, “miners” had an easier task than many expected, eliminating an overall score 6-1 Braga, Portuguese band that get undeserved place in that phase. Moreover, Shakhtar has 5 wins and a draw in six matches in the final stages of the Europa League this season.

Sevilla este castigatoarea ultimelor doua sezoane de Europa League, insa acum risca sa nu prinda niciun loc european. In sferturile acestei competitii, formatia condusa de Unai Emery a avut mari emotii, eliminand-o abia dupa loviturile de departajare pe Bilbao. Ambele formatii se impuneau cu 2-1 in deplasare. De altfel, victoria cu Bilbao a fost singura a andaluzilor din cele 3 deplasari efectuate in acest sezon de Europa League.
