Bosz calls for attention against Inter

Bayer Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz has claimed Inter ‘will punish’ his side if they continue ‘losing the ball’ like they did against Rangers on Thursday.

Leverkusen went through thanks to a 4-1 win on aggregate against Steven Gerrard’s side and will face Inter in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

But Bosz was not completely satisfied after yesterday’s 1-0 win at BayArena.

Roma to be reborn after Sevilla thrashing

Jim Pallotta’s era ends with a whimper against Sevilla, but at least new owner Dan Friedkin knows what he has to do at Roma, writes Owen Diana.

As one door closes for Roma, a new one opens. A marathon 2019-20 campaign came to a disappointing conclusion with a 2-0 defeat to Sevilla in Duisburg, but the club’s sale to American billionaire Dan Friedkin under 24 hours before kick-off brings hope for a brighter future.

Lopetegui: 'Sevilla deserved victory'

It was one-way traffic in Duisburg for the Europa League Round of 16 tie, as Sergio Reguilon and Youssouf En-Nesyri got the goals for a 2-0 result, but it could easily have been more.

“We played against a fantastic team who have fantastic players,” the Sevilla coach told Sky Sport Italia.
