NYON, Switzerland — Defending champion Sevilla has been drawn to play Fiorentina in the Europa League semifinals.

The Spanish club can become the first to win a fourth UEFA Cup or Europa League title.

In the other semifinal, Napoli will be at home first against Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.

Dnipro plays its home games in Kiev because UEFA judged Dnipropetrovsk unsafe to host matches during the conflict with pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.

The first legs will be played on May 7, with the return matches on May 14. The final will be played on May 27 at the National Stadium in Warsaw, Poland.

For the first time, the Europa League winner will also earn a place in the group stage of the Champions League next season.
