The 2022/23 Europa League And Conference League Semi-finals Teams, Fixtures and Dates

Manchester United have been knocked out after losing 3-0 away to Sevilla, and 5-2 on aggregate.

Erik ten Hag’s men had thrown away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 in the first leg of the quarter-final tie at Old Trafford.

Following a string of defensive errors from Harry Maguire and David de Gea, Youssef En-Nesyri scored twice in the 8th and 81st minute, and defender Loic Balde header goal in the 47th minute at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán helped the Spaniards sent Ten Hag’s injury-hit side out of Europe.

The Spanish La Liga side will now face Juventus, who defeated Sporting in the first Europa League semi-final.

In other quarter-final games, Italian giants Juventus narrowly booked their place in the last four with victory over Sporting Lisbon and will take on Sevilla next.

With a 1-0 lead from the first leg, Adrien Rabiot netted after just nine minutes in Portugal to extend Juventus' advantage.

But former Tottenham forward Marcus Edwards equalised for the host Sporting, but Juventus held on to win 2-1 on aggregate.

Bayer Leverkusen overwhelmed Union Saint-Gilloise in Belgium as Moussa Diaby, Mitchel Bakker, Jeremie Frimpong and Adam Hlozek scored for the away team, while Union managed a consolation goal from Casper Terho when his side were already 3-0 down.

The sides were level at 1-1 after the first leg but the Germans progressed comfortably to the final four winning 5-2 on aggregate.

Roma scored two goals in extra time to come from behind and eventually crushed Feyenoord to reach the Europa League semi-finals.

Jose Mourinho's side, trailing 1-0 from the first leg, won  4-1 at the Stadio Olimpico and 4-2 on aggregate.

Roma had taken the lead after an hour through Leonardo Spinazzola, but Igor Paixao's late goal in the 80th minute looked to be sending the visitors through.

Talisman Pablo Dybala struck in the 89th minute to force the game into extra time in Rome.

Stephan El Shaarawy and Lorenzo Pellegrini then added two more goals for Roma to make it 4-1 on the night.

Roma also beat Feyenoord in the final of the Europa Conference League last season.

In the Europa Conference League, West Ham, Fiorentina and AZ Alkmaar were the first three sides into the next round, with Basel beating Nice after extra time.

Fiorentina reached the semi-finals when they hosted Polish side Lech Poznan, with the Serie A outfit starting 4-1 ahead on aggregate after the first leg.

Poznan cut the deficit with three goals from Afonso Sousa, Kristoffer Velde and Artur Sobiech leaving the scores tied, but Riccardo Sottil and then Gaetano Castrovilli scored late to clinch a 2-3 defeat for Fiorentina, and a 6-4 win overall.

Dutch side AZ Alkmaar are through after they levelled the aggregate scores against Anderlecht with a 2-0 win on the night with two earlier contributions from Vangelis Pavlidis, and then held their nerve for a 4-1 penalty shoot-out victory to reach the last four.

Two goals from West Ham veteran Michail Antonio and one each from Lucas Paqueta and Declan Rice meant that Hugo Cuypers’ opener for away side Gent was irrelevant, with David Moyes side winning 4-1 on the night and 5-2 over two legs.

Gaetan Laborde put Nice 1-0 up and level in the tie after nine minutes against Basel, but Jean-Kevin Augustin levelled late, and Kasim Nuhu scored an extra-time winner.

In the next round, Basel will play Fiorentina, with Alkmaar to face West Ham.
