Match highlights: Sevilla 2 United 1

Monday 17 August 2020 00:39

An agonising second-half winner from Sevilla cost Manchester United a place in the Europa League final on Sunday night, despite a performance full of attacking threat from the Reds.

Bruno Fernandes had given us the lead from the penalty spot in the opening minutes, but Sevilla hit back through Suso and Luuk de Jong, despite intense United pressure for much of the second period.
Inspired goalkeeping from the Spaniards' stopper Bono thwarted Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood during a manic 15-minute spell, and then United were caught out from a cross from Jesus Navas that was tapped home by de Jong.

It made for a heartbreaking exit for the Reds, after a performance that promised so much in many aspects.
