Seville continues to demonstrate why it is one of the favorites when it comes to keeping the UEFA Europa League. On this occasion, those of Lopetegui eliminated Rome of the round of 16 and made history.
And it is that the Spanish team became the first team in the history of European competitions to eliminate both Roman teams, the Giallorossi and Lazio, consecutively.
