That feeling once again. Once again, on the brink of glory. Sevilla FC are into the semi finals in this unusual UEFA Europa League, after a match that was very different to the win against Roma. After a strong start by the English side, including Bono saving a penalty, the Nervionenses began to dominate, but were unable to find that decisive goal until the 88th minute, with that man Lucas Ocampos scoring yet again. Banega whipped in a cross and the Argentine's header left Rui Patricio well beaten.
Sevilla were warned very early on about the speed of Wolves in transition, and they saw that within the opening minute, as Raul Jiménez tested Bono after heading a cross from Adama. The side from the West Midlands were the more active side, and Dendoncker also went close as he met a free kick in the box, but their best chance came in the 11th minute.
Diego Carlos could not avoid conceding a penalty, but Bono's save kept the scores level
Adama went on a long, surging run before being brought down in the box by Diego Carlos, leaving the referee with an easy decision to make. There were no protests as he awarded Wolves a penalty. Jiménez took it, Bono guessed correctly and pushed his effort away. A real let-off for Sevilla FC, who kept more control of the ball afterwards, and did not have to suffer from Wolves' counter attacks. However, the Nervionenses did not trouble Rui Patricio due to the good defensive work of Nuno's men. Long-range efforts from Suso, Ocampos and Jordán were the only real efforts in the first half, but the scoreline remained goalless at the break.
