Sevilla vs Roma XI: Predicted Lineups and team news for UEFA Europa League Final 2023


The UEFA Europa League culminates in an exciting final this week as Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma lock horns with an impressive Sevilla side in an important encounter at the Puskas Arena on Wednesday.

Sevilla are currently 11th in the La Liga table and have improved after a slow start to their campaign. The Andalusian side suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat at the hands of Real Madrid at the weekend and will have to work hard to bounce back in this fixture.

AS Roma, on the other hand, are currently sixth in the Serie A table and have been quite impressive so far this season. The Giallorossi suffered a devastating 2-1 defeat against Fiorentina in their previous game and have a lot to prove this week.

Sevilla team news

Mendilibar happily rested most of his big names last time out against Real Madrid, with the likes of Jesus Navas, Alex Telles, Fernando, Lucas Ocampos and Youssef En-Nesyri all set to return to the starting lineup.

Left-back Marcos Acuna is suspended, not for the red card he picked up against Real, but rather the two yellows he was shown in the semi-final second leg against Juventus. Two red cards in nine days? Pretty good going, that.

Sevilla predicted lineup (4-2-3-1):

 Bounou; Navas, Bade, Gudelj, Telles; Fernando, Rakitic; Ocampos, Torres, Gil; En-Nesyri

Roma team news

Paulo Dybala faces a late fitness test as he seeks to overcome an ankle injury. The Argentine trained on Monday and is expected to start.

Lorenzo Pellegrini and Leonardo Spinazzola are both expected back as well, but Rick Karsdorp, Marash Kumbulla and Mady Camara are likely to miss out.

Roma predicted lineup (3-4-2-1): 

Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez; Celik, Cristante, Matic, Spinazzola; Dybala, Pellegrini; Abraham
