Europa League Semi-Final Draw

Juventus will need to see off Portuguese league leaders, SL Benfica, if they want to play the UEFA Europa League final in their own stadium.

Benfica will host the first-leg before travelling to Italy, where Juve will be looking to continue their quest to lift the trophy for the first time.

The other semi-final, it will be an all-Spanish affair as Sevilla clash with Valencia. Sevilla will be at home in the first-leg.

Valencia put in a heroic effort to overturn a 3-0 defeat away to Basel by beating the same opponents 5-0 in the second-leg.

Italian champions Juventus beat Lyon 3-1 on aggregate - winning 2-1 in Turin after having secured a 1-0 victory in France in the first- leg.

Benfica won 1-0 home and away against AZ Alkmaar to secure their progress while FC Porto were unable to contain Sevilla in Spain - where the 4-1 victory for the Spaniards saw them triumph 4-2 on aggregate.

The winner of semi-final one (Sevilla or Valencia), will play as the 'home' team in the final, with semi-final 2 winners (Juventus or SL Benfica) being considered the away team at the Juventus Stadium for the showpiece clash.

The full draw is as follows:

SF1: Sevilla v Valencia

SF 2: SL Benfica v Juventus

The semi-final matches are set to take place on 24 April and 1 May 2014.
