Sevilla in final of Europa

1 min read

Luuk de Jong fired Sevilla into another Europa League final as the LaLiga side won 2-1 in Cologne to shatter Manchester United’s hopes of silverware.

Winners of this competition in 2014, 2015 and 2016, Sevilla took another stride towards glory after resisting heavy pressure from United in this semi-final.

United took the lead through Bruno Fernandes penalty after nine minutes of kick off. Suso grabbed a 26th minute equaliser

And De Jong connected sweetly with a cross swung over by Jesus Navas  in the 78th minute to send Julen Lopetegui’s side through to Friday’s showpiece.

Manchester United suffered one more semi-final defeat again as their Europa League dreams were shattered in Cologne.

After losing in the last four of the EFL Cup to neighbours Manchester City and in the semi-finals of the FA Cup to Chelsea this was almost too much to take.

United’s three fronts Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood could not find the net between them out here in the two games.
