When is the Europa League final 2022? Date, time and how to watch

The Europa League looks wide open this season as eight clubs remain in the battle for Europe’s second biggest club prize.

The quarter-final stage sees Barcelona, RB Leipzig and Atalanta, normally more accustomed to the Champions League knockout stages, attempting to win a different European trophy.

Britain is well represented in the quarter-finals, with both West Ham United and Rangers through to the latter stages of the competition. The two sides can now only meet in the final and both will be keen to make it an Anglo affair in Seville on May 18.

For some, the Europa League also offers the most realistic route into next season’s Champions League proper. So, how does the route to the final look for the eight sides, and when is the showpiece set to take place?

Xavi: Camp Nou has to be a pressure cooker

Barcelona’s quest to win each of Uefa’s three major tournaments remains on track following a 1-1 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Last week’s opening leg fixture between Barcelona and Frankfurt, the first between the sides, saw them play out a 1-1 draw. Ansgar Knauff scored the only goal for the hosts in the 48th minute. Ferran Torres scored the only goal for the La Liga club in the 66th minute.

However, on Barça head coach Xavi’s mind was the state of Frankfurt’s pitch. The outspoken tactician felt his side were hindered by the Deutsche Bank Park’s field and is hopeful a fiery home atmosphere can propel the Catalan giants into the semi-finals.

“They were a very physical opponent. They got forward like hell in transitions. We didn’t have the ball circulation and the state of the pitch didn’t help us,” he told reporters.

“We leave quite satisfied and Camp Nou will have to be a pressure cooker, like it was in their stadium.

“Normally the team that’s in control creates more, but we were not able to stop their devilish counter-attacks. We had already been warned – they eliminated a team like [Real] Betis [in the last 16].”
