Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso previews Europa League semifinal

Bayer Leverkusen Xabi Alonso discussed the upcoming Europa League semifinal with Roma after losing the derby with Koln.

“It was a difficult game, very chaotic and we must learn from it and do better,” the Spanish technician said in his post-match presser.

“Now we have more time to prepare for Roma. We hope to do better there than we did today. A semi-final in the Europa League is something very special for the club, and getting to the final would be even more special.”
