A wonderful morning to all our readers out there as we check out the results of the football matches played yesterday Sunday August 16, 2020
Sevilla moved into the Europa League final after beating lacklustre Manchester United side 2-1 in the semi-final in Cologne yesterday.
Sevilla taught the Old Trafford side a lesson, capitalising on their missed chances and most importantly defensive slackness.
United got the first lead thanks to a Bruno Fernandes’ penalty after Diego Carlos brought down Marcus Rashford very early in the first half. Sevilla equalised through Suso before the half-hour mark and the Spanish side won the match in the 78th minute thanks to a goal from Luuk de Jong who capitalised on defensive slackness from Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Victor Lindelof.
Sevilla will now play the final on Friday against the winner between Inter Milan and Shakhtar Donetsk. Manchester United lost their third semifinal match this season after already coming short in the Carabao Cup and FA Cup and this is the third consecutive season they will go without a major trophy, their longest run since four consecutive seasons between 1985 and 1989.
