Liveblog: Europa League Sevilla-Roma

Join us for all the build-up and action as it happens from the Europa League, as Roma and Sevilla face off for a place in the quarter-finals.

It kicks off in Duisburg at 17.55 UK time (16.55 GMT).

As the first leg was also called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this Round of 16 tie is a one-off knockout round played on neutral turf in Germany.

The winners will gain access to the Final Eight tournament, facing Wolves or Olympiakos on August 11.

It’ll therefore be decided in 90 minutes, or if necessary extra time and then penalties.

Sevilla are the Europa League masters, winning the tournament three times in 2014, 2015 and 2016, not to mention two UEFA Cup triumphs in 2006 and 2007.

Only once since 2007-08 have Roma reached the quarter-finals of any major European competition, when they knocked out Barcelona on their way to the Champions League semi-finals in 2018.
