Sevilla will be looking to add yet another Europa League title to their trophy cabinet when they face Roma in tonight’s final in Budapest. The Spanish outfit are the undisputed kings of the competition, having won the title on six occasions, making them the most successful team in the history of the competition. Their first victory came against Middlesbrough in 2005/06 with a 4-0 win in Eindhoven and they have since gone on to retain the title a year later with a penalty shootout victory over fellow La Liga side Espanyol. Sevilla then went seven years without winning the tournament, but when they finally did so again it was the first of an historic treble of wins under Unai Emery. The hat-trick started in 2013/14 with victory over Benfica on penalties, followed by a 3-2 win over Ukrainian side Dnipro a year later and a 3-1 win over Liverpool to complete the three-peat. Their last Europa League trophy arrived in the delayed 2019/20 final, with a late own goal from Romelu Lukaku sealing a 3-2 win over Inter Milan in Cologne. Sevilla’s only other European trophy is the UEFA Super Cup from 2006. Manager Jose Luis Mendilibar believes Sevilla’s Europa League pedigree will give them an edge in tonight’s final, saying: ‘I think that Sevilla will be favourites given we have won this competition six times.’
