The Sevilla football club, has qualified for his fourth final of the Europa League in seven years by knocking down Sunday, Manchester United (2-1) in Cologne, behind closed doors, but the Red Devils can bite your fingers as they have had the stranglehold on this game. Friday, the Andalusians, in contention to win their sixth C3 over the last fifteen editions, will be opposed to Inter Milan or Shakhtar Donetsk, who face off Monday night. Against Copenhagen in the previous round, Manchester had long foundered on the defence and the goalkeeper Danish Kalle Johnsson in a state of grace before you find the fault during the extension period, on a penalty shot. This scenario is a bit reproduced with Yassine Bono.
The guardian morocco has almost justified to himself why his team had not conceded for five matches prior to this encounter and why she is still on a record streak of 19 matches in defeat since February, range now to 20. He pushed fists a free-kick floating of Marcus Rashford (39th), a firm shot from Bruno Fernandes, before going out into the feet of Mason Greenwood (46th) and by two times in Anthony Martial (53rd), which he had already repelled an attempt in closed-angle three minutes earlier. The main difference is that this time, the men of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had managed to quickly take the advantage in the score. After a pass is brilliant on the surface of Martial in the race Rashford, Bono had postponed the shooting of the attacker English, but the referee German Felix Brych had sanctioned the intervention, dangerous, Diego, Carlos, already at the origin of a penalty against Wolverhampton in the quarter.
Two releases guilty
Bruno Fernandes, with his funny run which ends with a kind of leap of cabri before hitting the ball, had propelled the latter in the transverse opposing (0-1, 7th), for his 12th goal of the season and especially the 22nd penalty in 61 games this season for Manchester. Unfortunately for him, United has done to punish two times on releases. After a first warning from Lucas Ocampos in a closed angle, pushed by David De Gea of new holder (16th), Suso found himself in the second post at the conclusion of a beautiful collective action entered into by a fleeing Sergio Reguilon to equalize (1-1, 26th).
The key to the origin of the action was wrongly allowed to Sevilla, defender Julius Koundé touching the ball of the head, eliciting protests from the United. Seville has worn the nails in the coffin to twelve minutes from the end by the Dutch Luuk De Jong, who took advantage of a lack of aggressiveness of the rear-guard mancunienne, visibly blunt, to mark quietly to the second pole. An epilogue bitter for Manchester United, who had seen a phase to go poor before you make a superb end of the season after the arrival of Bruno Fernandes, finishing 3rd in the Premier League. Manchester could also find the next season in C1 Sevilla, the two clubs having already qualified for the group stage.
