Juventus managed to salvage a 1-1 draw against Sevilla, thanks to Federico Gatti's dramatic headed goal in the 97th minute.

The match began with both teams showcasing their skills and determination, seeking to gain an early advantage.

It was Sevilla's Youssef En-Nesyri who broke the deadlock in the first half, giving the record six-time champions a valuable lead.

However, Juventus refused to surrender and pressed forward relentlessly in search of a crucial goal.

In the dying moments of the match, Federico Gatti emerged as the hero for the Italian giants.

With the clock ticking, Gatti displayed impeccable timing and positioning, connecting with a header that found the back of the net, sending the Juventus faithful into rapturous celebrations.

Gatti's late intervention proved to be a game-changer, not only securing a vital equalizer for Juventus but also shifting the momentum heading into the second leg of the semifinals.

The Italian side now have an away goal as they prepare to travel to Seville for the decisive clash.

The Old Lady are facing an uncertain future this season in the Serie A with several investigations into the club's transfer activity which could mean point deductions and lose out on a Champions League spot but presently they are second, 17 points behind newly crowned champions Napoli with 4 games to go.

Winning the Europa League, on the other hand, will secure an automatic qualification in next season's Champions League.

The same can be said of Sevilla who currently sit 11th in La Liga and would need to win to be in Europe's elite competition next season.

The draw sets the stage for an enthralling second leg, where both Juventus and Sevilla will battle it out to secure a place in the Europa League final.
