This year's UEFA's Europa League Final sees the Ukrainian team FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk and the Spanish side Sevilla FC clash for the title. 

Both teams overcame an Italian opponent in the Semi-finals with Dnipro eliminating Napoli with a 2:1 aggregate and Sevilla defeating Fiorentina with a combined score of 5:0.

The two teams have more at stake than simply taking the trophy home. According to new rules, the winner of the tournament is guaranteed a spot in next year's Champions League. With both teams outside of their league's qualifying position for that prestigious tournament, this is the only way to get their ticket.

Englishman Martin Atkinson will be the main referee for the game.
