Sevilla tops United in Europa League, gets Juventus in semis

Madrid, April 21 (BNA): Six-time champions Sevilla knocked Manchester United out of the UEFA Europa League today, Thursday, after winning 3-0 in the second leg of the quarter-finals.

United had earlier beaten Barcelona and Real Betis in Europe’s second-tier competition, but could not keep up with Sevilla – currently 13th in La Liga – at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.

Striker Youssef En-Nesyri scored twice and Sevilla advanced to the semi-finals 5-2 on aggregate after a 2-2 draw last week in the first leg at Old Trafford, reports the Associated Press.

Under pressure, United defender Harry Maguire lost the ball outside the area and Ensiri fired a left-footed shot into the corner past goalkeeper David De Gea in the eighth minute.

Defender Loïc Badé slotted home two minutes into the second half, and En-Nesyri doubled it 3-0 late on after De Gea’s blunder.

The Spaniards also eliminated United in the semi-finals of the same competition in 2020.

Sevilla will face Juventus in the round of four after the Italian team drew 1-1 with Sporting in Lisbon to win 2-1 on aggregate.
