Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui has hailed Europa League semi-final opponents as 'the biggest team in the world' ahead of their showdown on Sunday.

An 88th-minute winner from Lucas Ocampos sneaked Sevilla over the line against Wolves in Tuesday's quarter-final, with Raul Jimenez missing a first-half penalty for the Premier League side.  

Nevertheless, Sevilla - whose record in the Europa League is impressing, having won the competition three times in a row from 2014-2016 - will come up against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side on Sunday in Cologne, and Lopetegui did not underestimate the scale and reach of their English opponents.
