Sevilla crush wasteful Man United, book ticket for Europa Cup finals

English side, Manchester United were dumped out of the Europa Cup by 5 times champions, Sevilla after losing the semi final game played Sunday night by 2 goals to one.

United opened the scoring with a Bruno Fernandes ninth minute spot-kick which was converted after Marcus Rashford was fouled by Diego Carlos. This was before former Liverpool winger Suso levelled things up with a tap-in for Sevilla in the 27th minute.

Ole Gunnar Solsajear’s men were wasteful on the night despite series of opportunities in the early stage of the second half and they failed to take the lead with Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial, Fernandes and Rashford all coming close and were punished when Sevilla’s Luuk de Jong scored in the 78th minute after poor defending from Victor Lindelof and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The result leaves Manchester United without a major trophy for the third-straight season for the first time since a stretch between 1987-89 and has now been beaten in the semi-finals of the competition for the third time this season following losses at the same stage in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.

Sevilla is now aiming for a sixth Europa League trophy and will face with the winner of the semi-final clash between Inter Milan and Shakhtar Donetsk in the final of the tournament on Friday in Cologne, Germany.
