UEFA Europa League: Your Running Commentary

If you are hungry for some quality soccer, there is a scrumptious pair of matches on tap that should fill your appetite.

The UEFA Europa League semifinals are set to get underway on Thursday with two match-ups that hold plenty of intrigue, as Benfica lock horns with Juventus in a battle of European heavyweights (3:05pm, ESPN Deportes/DirecTV/Fox Soccer Plus) at Estadio Da Luz while Sevilla and Valencia square off in an all-Spanish affair in the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan (3:05pm, ESPN3/Fox Soccer 2Go).

All four clubs possess plenty of quality on both sides of the ball, which should make these opening legs as entertaining as the UEFA Champions League semifinals matches from earlier in the week.
