Our match prediction:
This will be the clash of two teams that landed to Europa League via Champions League group stages, and they are the only two such sides left in the competition. Shakhtar hammered Sporting Braga in the quarter-finals to reach the last four, and they now hope to get revenge on Sevilla for the narrow defeat to los Rojiblancos in the 2007 competition. The game will be played at L’viv Arena, but that does not seem to be the problem for the hosts who have won last five fixtures in Europa League, two of those at home. Sevilla head into the clash as Europa League holders and they made it to the semis after beating Athletic Bilbao in the penalty shoot-out. Unai Emery’s side have struggled for form of late and having won just one of last 11 away matches on all fronts, they could find it hard to extend the unbeaten run in matches against Ukrainian teams (W4 D1).
