SAINTS loanee Dani Osvaldo has one foot in the semi finals of the Europa League.

The Italian international striker started last night's 1-0 win at Lyon, the first leg of their quarter final.

But he was substituted just after the hour mark, so could only watch as Leonardo Bonucci scored the only goal of the tie five minutes from time.

Osvaldo's only two goals for Juve since joining the club on loan in January came in the Europa League, both against Trabzonspor.
