During the return leg of the 1/8 Champions League finals Sevilla has won away match over Manchester United and has got into a quarterfinal.
In the first match of the 1/8 Champions League finals Sevilla had serious advantage but Manchester United has defended a draw thanks to David de Gea's mastership. 0 points in Andalusia have left to José Mourinho and Vincenzo Montella's teams equal chances of getting into the quarterfinal as the first team didn’t lose the away match and the second didn’t miss any goal at home arena. Three weeks later the Red Devils and Los Nervionenses have met at Old Trafford and the draw result wasn’t acceptable this time – one team had to go further.
It was the day before when no one knew whether Paul Pogba will be able to take part in this match. The Frenchman, obviously, hasn't managed to restore his health completely and therefore he was warming the bench. His place in the middle zone of Manchester United wasn’t taken by Scott McTominay but by Marouane Fellaini. We suppose that José Mourinho needed more experienced and tall football player. If we speak about the squad of Sevilla in comparison with the first match Vincenzo Montell has made one change. The full back Simon Kjær who had managed to restore his health was playing instead of Jesús Navas.
Manchester United had managed to aggravate situation at the rival's gates. Romelu Lukaku was playing with Jesse Lingard and made one-touch shot but the Belgian forward had to be more accurate – the ball has flown over a crossbeam! Sevilla decided to answer this shot and has created quite good chance after the left wing corner. Joaquin Correa headed shot after Banega’s assist but this time the shot wasn’t accurate as well.
After that the game turned out to be not so bright for the neutral viewer. The price of the mistake was too high therefore football players of both teams preferred not to risk. We can point out quite good shot of Luis Muriel from the border of penalty area however the player of guests hasn't reached the far corner. Much more favorable moment has happened by the end of the first half to Marouane Fellaini. Having met with Alexis Sanchez, the Belgian midfielder has shot from the left part of the rivals’ penalty area but Sergio Rico did well that time.
During the debut of the second half Sevilla has carried out an excellent counterattack. In its end Joaquin Correa has appeared before David de Gea but the player of guests was making the decision for a long time and therefore Eric Bailly has managed to play in a tackle. Manchester United has answered with Jesse Lingard's shot but Sergio Rico has saved the team. Shortly Alexis Sanchez kicked however the Chilean has got into the rival.
In fifteen minutes till the end of the match the team of Vincenzo Montella has punished Manchester United for too boring football. Ben Yedder who has just substituted the football player received a pass from Pablo Sarabia, has avoided Eric Bailly and has shot in the right corner. It was only the knock-down and on the 78th minute the Red Devils have been knocked out. After the left pass Ben Yedder has made a head – David de Gea tried to save his team but the ball nevertheless has crossed the line of the gates. The French forward has scored two goals, having spent at the field only six minutes.
José Mourinho's team has rushed to the attack and shortly before the end of the normal time has won back one goal. After the corner the ball has found Romelu Lukaku and the Belgian has powerfully kicked from several meters. The Red Devils were not able to do anything more. Manchester United has left the Champions League and will draw certain conclusions and Sevilla will play in the quarterfinal.
