All the same in the semifinals of Europa League. This Thursday (11), the seville even went ahead, but the Juventus sought a 1-1 draw in the last leg of the first leg at the Allianz Stadium.

The return match will take place at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium next Thursday (18), at 4 pm (Brasília time), with live broadcast by ESPN on Star+. Whoever wins qualifies for the big decision.

Even playing away from home, the Spanish team looked dominant in the first stage. In the first minutes, José Mendilibar’s team dominated.

In the 18th minute, however, Dusan Vlahovic had a series of very clear chances wasted. In the first, he was ‘saved’ by being offside. In the second, however, with the goal practically open, the Serb took the ball badly and isolated it.

But Sevilla does not forgive anyone who makes this kind of mistake. At 25 minutes, Ocampos crossed in the area, Bryan Gil let the ball pass and reached En-Nesyri, who finished well to open the scoring.

In the second stage, the Old Lady began to dominate the actions more, but with little chance of taking a big risk. At 41, Rabiot fell in the area after sharing with Badé, and the players asked for a penalty, but nothing was scored.

But Juve did not give up. And, at 51 minutes, Pogba scored a corner kick in the area, and Gatti completed to equalize at the end.
