Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma has won tickets to the Europa League quarter-finals after overcoming Real Sociedad with a total score of 2-0 after 2 matches.
In the 8th round of the strongest teams, they can face 1 of 7 other opponents including Manchester United, Juventus, Sevilla, Sporting CP, Feyenoord, Bayer Leverkusen and Union SG.
Notably, in the opinion of coach Jose Mourinho, clubs that are eliminated from the Champions League such as Juventus, Sevilla or Sporting CP should not participate in the Europa League.
Specifically, the captain of AS Roma expressed: “We have eliminated two quite strong opponents, RB Salzburg and Real Sociedad. Now, we are in the quarter-finals and there are many stronger clubs here, because there, let’s wait and see.
In my opinion There are some football teams that shouldn’t be here. If they get eliminated in another tournament, they should go home. If the Europa League is conquered by a team that has been eliminated from the Champions League, this playing field will lose much of its meaning in my eyes.”
