Hampden Park is set to stage a Spanish fiesta on Wednesday as UEFA Cup holders Sevilla defend their trophy against Primera Liga rivals Espanyol.

Nineteen points separate title-chasing Sevilla and mid-table Espanyol in the Primera Liga but the Catalans have been in imperious form in Europe, reaching their first continental final since 1988 by winning 11 and drawing three of their 14 games en route to Glasgow.

Should his side triumph, Sevilla coach Juande Ramos will follow in the footsteps of Luis Molowny and win UEFA Cups in successive seasons. Molowny guided Real to back-to-back UEFA Cup victories in 1985 and 1986.
