Europa League

Andy Mattioli

Spanish football legend and former teammate of Xabi Alonso, Cesc Fabregas, weighed in on the upcoming Europa League semifinals involving Roma and Bayer Leverkusen.

During the event organized by the UEFA Enterprise sponsor “Rent-A-Player”, Fabregas discussed with anticipation Thursday night’s first leg at the Stadio Olimpico.

“Roma and Bayer Leverkusen in the semi-final will be a very nice match. It’s a very, very tight race between two really good teams. It’s a 50-50 toss.”

“Obviously Bayer Leverkusen is having a fantastic season. Having already won the championship, I think it will be a fantastic match, because Roma are also growing with the new coach, Daniele De Rossi. It’ll be interesting, I’ll be in front of the TV watching it.”

“I think Leverkusen are at a moment where everything they touch turns to gold. They can continue to win, even when they are down to 10 men. They have a great mentality. They feel this moment, where everything you touch can turn into a goal.”

“Or if something ever happens, they will find a way, and this is very important for a team when they are in this state of form, in these dynamics and I’m sure they will try to implement it until the end of the season and win something too important, in addition to the championship.”
