Sevilla and Roma meet in Budapest on Wednesday to battle in the Europa League final.
No team has ever won this competition more than Sevilla, who have lifted the trophy a whopping six times – twice more than anybody else – and they head into this one full of confidence after a real resurgence under Jose Luis Mendilibar.
If Sevilla want a seventh, they’ll need to go through reigning Europa Conference League champions Roma who, led by Jose Mourinho, frustrated Bayer Leverkusen in the semi-final to earn a chance to compete for more silverware.

Mendilibar happily rested most of his big names last time out against Real Madrid, with the likes of Jesus Navas, Alex Telles, Fernando, Lucas Ocampos and Youssef En-Nesyri all set to return to the starting lineup.
Left-back Marcos Acuna is suspended, not for the red card he picked up against Real, but rather the two yellows he was shown in the semi-final second leg against Juventus. Two red cards in nine days? Pretty good going, that.

Paulo Dybala faces a late fitness test as he seeks to overcome an ankle injury. The Argentine trained on Monday and is expected to start.
Lorenzo Pellegrini and Leonardo Spinazzola are both expected back as well, but Rick Karsdorp, Marash Kumbulla and Mady Camara are likely to miss out.
Roma predicted lineup vs Sevilla
Roma predicted lineup (3-4-2-1): Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez; Celik, Cristante, Matic, Spinazzola; Dybala, Pellegrini; Abraham
Sevilla are specialists in this competition and their experience should not be overlooked. They’ve picked themselves up after a tough start to the season and have their sights firmly set on a seventh triumph here.
That should give them an edge against a Roma side cursed by a handful of injuries which, although not serious, could be problematic enough to limit their performance on this stage.
Expect a tough, tactical affair which Sevilla should just-about edge.
Prediction: Sevilla 2-1 Roma
