If Sevilla and the Europa League are together, anything can happen. United knew it and ended up suffering late on in one of the great matches in Sevilla's illustrious 130 year history. Although things looked to be turning sour with a debatable penalty awarded for a Diego Carlos challenge on Rashford, which was converted by Bruno Fernandes, the winning gene came back in its purest form. Suso equalised soon after and the Nervionenses had to dig deep as United threw everything at Bono's goal early in the second half, but the Moroccan goalkeeper held firm and Sevilla saw out the storm. With just 12 minutes to go, Luuk de Jong took advantage of some poor defending to score the winner. Again, they had to dig deep, but United were out of ideas. We are in another final!!!
Unlike in recent matches, Sevilla did not come out with the situation under control. United pressed high up almost immediately and tested the strength of the Nervionenses. They played in Sevilla's half and opened the scoring with their first chance. Rashford had a shot well saved by Bono but the official awarded a penalty for a challenge by Diego Carlos on Rashford. Bruno Fernandes took the spot kick and placed it into the top corner. An impossible shot to save.
The early penalty changed the course of events in a tough match
Sevilla recovered from the early set back, although Fred had a huge chance to double the English side's lead. The first effort came from Ocampos, but his powerful drive was within the reach of De Gea, who sent it out for a corner. The Nervionenses had improved and took full advantage. A wonderful team move, beginning in their own half, released Reguilón down the left, who whipped in a fantastic ball for Suso at the far post, who fired low into the corner beyond De Gea to level the scores.
