Ghana ace Kwadwo Asamoah and his Juventus side will play Benfica in the semi-finals of the Europa League.

The versatile player lasted the entire duration as the Bianconeri beat  Lyon 3-1 on aggregate on Thursday night to reach the last four for the first time since 1995.

The last time the Old Lady met with Benfica was in the quarter-finals of the 1992-93 UEFA Cup, which Juve won through 4-2 on aggregate.

The other semi-final is an all Spanish affair, with Valencia drawn against Sevilla.

The first leg of both ties, which will have Juventus and Valencia as away, will be played on Thursday April 24, with reverse legs held a week later on Thursday May 1.

At today’s draw, UEFA also determined that the winners from the semi-final between Sevilla and Valencia will be the nominal home side for the final.

This means that should Juve make it through to the final on May 14, they will face the curious experience of being the designated away side at their own ground.
