Juventus head to Spain to face Sevilla in a tight Europa League semi-final with a lot on the line for both teams.
Sevilla have already demonstrated that their league form has no bearing on their European ambitions. They had this type of personality while they were playing under Unai Emery, winning the Europa League or UEFA Cup on a regular basis.
This time, Sevilla may have revived that intensity, and they will meet Juventus in a carefully poised second-leg semifinal in Seville.
Sevilla picked up where they left off against Manchester United in the first leg against the Serie A side. They travelled to Turin knowing how cagey Juventus can be at home, but they took the lead thanks to a goal from Youssef En-Nesyri. The Spanish team held their composure and were on the verge of a historic win over the Serie A powers.
Federico Gatti, on the other hand, had other ideas, scoring a late equalise to put the game back in doubt. Furthermore, they are in terrific form, having won back-to-back league games against Girona and Real Valladolid. Everything points to an exciting encounter at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, with a lot on the line.
Juventus approaches this game on a roll and under pressure to qualify for the Champions League. Allegri would hope for a strong performance in Seville to give their fans hope of a title before the end of a contentious season.
