Europa League 2014-15

(From 3-07-2014 to 27-05-2015)

 

 

COMPETITION SYSTEM

·          195 teams (best qualified clubs in domestic leagues, domestic Cup winners, title holder, and extra participants) play four qualifying rounds on a home and away basis. The access of participants in these rounds depends on how their country is ranked in UCR (direct berths) or other factors (extra berths). The aggregate score of both games decides the winner. Ties are resolved with: 1) the “away goals double value” rule; 2) a 30 minutes extra-time after regulation; 3) a penalty shoot-out (pk).

·          The 48 surviving teams after the previous knock-out rounds participate in a Group Stage, divided in 12 groups of 4 teams each playing a round robin (3 points per victory, 1 point per draw). The group winners and runners-up qualify for a Round of 32, with winners advancing further to a Round of 16, Quarterfinals and Semifinals. The criteria to determine the final classification within the groups are (in this order): 1) total points earned; 2) goal average; 3) away goals; 4) UEFA Country Ranking at the beginning of the season.

·          A final game is played at a predetermined venue.

PARTICIPANTS AND BERTH ASSIGNMENT

159 entrants as a result of UEFA Country Ranking (UCR) for the period 2009-2013 and 36 more entrants depending on different factors. The berth assignment is as follows:

 

Direct berths (159): 3 countries (places 7-9 in UCR) with 4 teams; 47 countries (places 1-6 and 10-53 in UCR, except Liechtenstein, Andorra and San Marino) with 3 teams; 2 countries (Andorra and San Marino) with 2 teams; 2 countries (Liechtenstein and Gibraltar) with 1 team.

 

Extra berths (36): 3 teams qualified via Fair Play (ranking of countries whose teams receive points based on criteria such as fewest yellow/red cards, positive play, respect for the opponent, respect for the referee, behavior of the team officials and behavior of the fans). 33 teams qualified via Champions League 2014-15 (15 losers from Third Qualifying Round, 10 losers from the Qualification Playoff and 8 third-placed teams after the League Stage).

RESUMEN DEL PARTIDO (GAME SUMMARY)

 

Confirmando los pronósticos generales (aunque con más dificultades de las previstas), el Sevilla rubricó una brillante temporada con la conquista de su cuarta Europa League en otras tantas finales e hizo historia al convertirse en el equipo con más títulos en esta competición (antiguamente conocida como Copa de la UEFA), superando a clubes de la talla de Juventus, Liverpool e Inter. El cuadro hispalense supo sobreponerse al gol inicial del Dnipro que, aunque sin tanto nombre como sus rivales, justificó plenamente su presencia en la final con un juego incansable e hizo sufrir a los hombres de Emery hasta el final. Para el Sevilla, el premio es triple, ya que el título de la Europa League le permitirá acceder directamente a la fase de grupos de la próxima edición de la Liga de Campeones (lo que supondrá un importante ingreso económico en las arcas hispalenses). Dentro de un brillante juego coral, dos hombres destacaron en el sevilla: el delantero colombiano Carlos Bacca (con dos goles plenos de oportunismo y rapidez) y el centrocampista argentino Éver Banega (con un inteligente control del centro del campo que le sirvió para ser nombrado mejor jugador de la final). Tras una primera parte plena de ritmo, en la que el Sevilla supo imponer su mayor calidad, el juego decayó notablemente en la segunda mitad, en la que el dominio territorial correspondió al Dnipro pero en la que el conjunto hispalense supo hacer valer su mayor experiencia para resolver el partido con un gol de oportunismo de Bacca.

 

El Sevilla comenzó dominador y dinámico, controlando la posesión del balón gracias a la calidad de Banega y Reyes. El veterano capitán sevillista fue una clara apuesta de Emery por desmontar el ordenado entramado defensivo del Dnipro, con lo que mandó a Aleix Vidal al lateral derecho. Sin embargo, tras un posible penalti sobre Reyes en el área ucraniana, los hombres de Myron Markevych se adelantaron en el marcador en su primera llegada a las inmediaciones de la portería defendida por Sergio Rico: en una rápida contra, Matheus centra desde la banda derecha al corazón del área, en donde el croata Kalinić cabecea el balón al fondo de las mallas. El partido se ponía de cara para el Dnipro, un conjunto especialista en defender ordenadamente hasta provocar la desesperación de sus rivales (como ya demostró en la semifinal frente al Nápoles). Sin embargo, el Sevilla no pareció afectado por este inesperado contratiempo y siguió practicando su juego de toque y control, sabedor de que aún quedaba mucho partido por delante y las oportunidades iban a llegar. Con Banega y Krychowiak como motores en la zona medular, el Sevilla pasó a encerrar a sus rivales en el área. Tras un primer aviso del centrocampista polaco del Sevilla en el minuto 24, con un cabezazo picado a la salida de un córner que Bojko despejó con apuros, Krychowiak no falló en su segunda oportunidad y batió al portero ucraniano tras controlar un balón dentro del área tras un nuevo saque de esquina. El gol dio alas al Sevilla, que vivió momentos de muy buen fútbol. Apenas tres minutos después del empate, un preciso pase interior del capitán Reyes a la penetración en carrera de Bacca permitió al delantero colombiano plantarse solo ante Bojko y hacer el segundo tras driblar al portero ucraniano. Sin embargo, tras consumar la remontada, al Sevilla le faltó aplomo para controlar el partido y permitió que el Dnipro reaccionara. A Matheus (una pesadilla en banda derecha para Trémoulinas) se unió Konopljanka por la izquierda. Tras avisar este último con un disparo ajustado a la escuadra que Sergio Rico sacó a mano cambiada, el conjunto ucraniano empató en el minuto 44 gracias a su capitán Rotan’, que transformó brillantemente un libre directo en la frontal del área.

 

En la segunda mitad, el miedo y el cansancio comenzaron a aparecer, y el ritmo y la calidad del partido en los primeros cuarenta y cinco minutos decayeron notablemente. El Dnipro fue entonces el equipo que mostró más empuje e intensidad, mientras que el Sevilla pareció acusar el esfuerzo de la primera mitad y quedó a la espera de aprovechar su mayor calidad atacante. Emery buscó entonces más fuerza que talento e introdujo en el campo a Coke en lugar del capitán Reyes (que se fue con mala cara). A medida que pasaban los minutos, quedó claro que el primer equipo en marcar un gol se llevaría con casi total seguridad la final… y ése fue el Sevilla. En una indecisión de la defensa del Dnipro, Vitolo envió un pase interior entre los centrales ucranianos y de nuevo el oportunismo y la velocidad de Bacca sirvió para que el Sevilla tomara una ventaja que, a falta de poco más de un cuarto de hora para el final, parecía definitiva. Aunque el Dnipro intentó reaccionar, las prisas, los nervios y su falta de definición atacante se convirtieron en un lastre demasiado pesado. En el minuto 79, Bacca pudo haber “matado” el partido con su tercer gol de la noche, pero Bojko despejó instintivamente por encima del larguero el cabezazo a bocajarro del delantero colombiano. Un impresionante silencio se hizo en el Estadio Nacional de Varsovia cuando Matheus se desplomó sobre el césped y tuvo que ser sacado en camilla. Con un hombre menos, el Dnipro intentó agotar sus opciones y buscó el empate a la desesperada, pero el Sevilla ya se sabía campeón y supo controlar el juego hasta el pitido final.
