The 2022/23 UEFA Europa League quarter-final and semi-final draws have been made.
Having eliminated Real Betis in the round of 16, Man United face their city rivals Sevilla in the last eight. The six-time UEFA Cup and Europa League winners Sevilla have won both previous ties against United, knocking them out 2-1 in the 2019/20 Europa League semi-finals in Cologne, and by the same aggregate score in the 2017/18 Champions League round of 16 (0-0 h, 2-1 a).
Juventus and Sporting met for the only time in the 2017/18 Champions League group stage, the Italian side winning 2-1 in Turin before a 1-1 draw in Lisbon. Feyenoord and Roma, meanwhile, met in last season's Europa Conference League final, Nicolò Zaniolo scoring the only goal for the Serie A side in the 32nd minute in Tirana.
