Benfica and Sevilla seize the advantage in Europa League

Home comforts have become a necessity in the Europa League semi-final second legs, matches which will be played in two weeks time.

Both Benfica and Sevilla hold an advantage in their ties after last night registering wins against Juventus and Valencia, respectively.

The Portuguese side - who won their domestic title last week - took the lead after just two minutes as Ezequiel Garay scored. Carlos Tevez equalised for Juventus but Lima out the home side back in the lead six minutes from the end.

The home side scored twice in the tie between Spanish rivals Sevilla and Valencia. Stephane Mbia and Carlos Bacca got the goals.
