Unai Emery’s side will be desperate to reach the Europa League final having missed out on a top-four finish, with the competition offering them the opportunity to compete in next season’s Champions League.

Emery is looking to reach his fourth Europa League final, having won three at Sevilla.

Five of the previous 28 teams to lose the first leg of a UEFA Cup/Europa League semi-final by 2+ goals have ended up progressing, most recently Espanyol against Club Brugge in 1987-88.
