Conference League bracket 2023: West Ham's path to the final

The 2022/23 UEFA Europa Conference is closing in on finding just its second ever champion.

The newest UEFA tournament was won by AS Roma last season and now just four teams remain in the quest to lift the title next.

While not as sought-after as the Champions League or Europa League, the Conference League is still a piece of European silverware and no club can sneeze at that.

With the semifinals underway, The Sporting News takes a look at how the draw is shaping up.
