Champions: Sevilla FC wins the 7th Europa League in its history

The Andalusian team is the king par excellence of a tournament that has won more times than anyone else; against Roma he added his seventh title.

Seville has done it again. Nervión celebrates after Jose Luis Mendilibar’s team clinched the 2022-23 Europa League title against Jose Mourinho’s Roma. Thus, the Andalusian team confirms its status as king in a match tonight for the seventh time in its history.


Sevilla once again reached the final of the UEFA Europa League, beating Roma at Budapest’s Puskas Arena this Wednesday. The Spaniards, who had left Juventus on the road in the semi-finals, are now ‘loading’ another Serie A team to keep all the glory in Hungary. La Loba, who had kicked Bayer Leverkusen out of the tournament from Xabi Alonso in the semi-finals, was the last obstacle the Sevillans had to overcome to declare ‘champion’.

Sevilla fell into the 2022-23 Europa League after finishing third in Group G of the Champions League. In the second most important continental tournament, they knocked out PSV Eindhoven of the Netherlands in the preliminary round (3-2 aggregate), Fenerbahce of Turkey in the round of 16 (2-1 aggregate), Manchester United of England (5-2 aggregate) and in the semifinal against Juventus of Italy (3–2 aggregate). Finally, they defeated Roma on penalties following a 1–1 draw after 120 minutes.


Since its foundation, Sevilla had already won the league seven times, the most. Do you remember them?

2005-2006 | Middlesbrough 0-4 Sevilla | Philips Stadium (Eindhoven)

The first came in the 2005–06 season after beating Middlesbrough in the final (0–4). Maresca’s double and the goals of Luis Fabiano and Kanouté, the golden striker of recent years for the Sevilla team, were key to their debut.

2006-2007 | Espanyol (1) 2-2 (3) Seville | Hampden Park, Glasgow

The following year, Sevilla again demonstrated its power in Europe by winning its second Europa League. On that occasion, he had to sweat more than necessary to beat Espanyol, whom he beat on penalties thanks to Palop’s good performance. Adriano and Kanouté, the first in regular time and the second in extra time, scored the most effective goals for Sevilla in the penalty shootout where Kanouté, Dragutinovic and the highly anticipated Puerta made their three hits count against the two parakeets.

2013-2014 | Benfica (2) 0-0 (4) Sevilla | Juventus Stadium (Turin)

We had to wait more than five years to see Seville reign in Europe again, but it was worth it. After a blood-curdling semi-final against Valencia and an exciting final against Benfica from the then Oblak in goal, the inhabitants of Seville celebrated the third in the penalty shootout. Bacca, M’Bia, Coke and Gameiro were on target from eleven yards to send the Seville parish into delirium.

2014-2015 | Dnipro 2-3 Seville | National Stadium (Warsaw)

Another year later and best of all, he took the fourth European title thanks to goals from Krychowiak, Carriço and Bacca in the grand final against Dnipro (2-3). New joy to celebrate a title of the greatest in the league

2015-2016 | Liverpool 1-3 Seville | St. Jakob Park (Basel)

In what was probably the most memorable game, he won the titles in Europe after beating Liverpool, then already with the appearance of King of the Old Continent, thanks to goals from Gameiro and the double from Coke, the true hero of that Europa League.

2019-2020 | Inter 2-3 Seville | RheinEnergie Stadium (Cologne)

Sevilla had to wait four years to reign in their favorite league. He did it again in 2020 when Jesús Navas lifted the cup in Cologne after beating Inter 3-2 in the final. Julen Lopetegui’s team recovered from goals from Lukaku and Godín thanks to a brace from Luuk De Jong and the final goal from Diego Carlos.

The final was played in August and without an audience due to the coronavirus and for the first time the tournament was determined with a final to 8 and Sevilla defeated Roma, Wolves, Manchester United and Inter in one game to lift their favorite trophy.
