Manchester United vs Sevilla Highlights:

02:27 (IST)17 Aug 2020
SEVILLA PROGRESS TO THE FINAL!

SEVILLA WIN! Despite bringing on Ighalo towards the end and trying with all their might, United go down fighting against an experienced Sevilla side who held on to their lead like the European royalty they are -- atleast in UEFA Europa League. Goals from Suso and Luuk de Jong have booked Sevilla a spot in the final against either Inter or Shakhtar Donetsk.

02:20 (IST)17 Aug 2020
88' United make changes

Juan Mata is on for Rashford. Fosu-Mensah and James are also on in place of Williams and Wan-Bissaka.

02:19 (IST)17 Aug 2020
86' Change for Sevilla

After Maguire goes into the book for a tackle on Munir, Shard-garfting midfielder Nemanja Gudelj is subbed on for Jordan.

02:09 (IST)17 Aug 2020
78' DE JOOOONG!

THE BIG GUY SCORES! Luuk de Jong, who hadn't scored in his last 11 matches, has come up with a crucial goal here. After a nice passing play, Navas find himself with the ball on the right wing and his cross finds an unmarked de Jong near the back post. Lindelof just lets him walk past him and Wan Bissaka is caught sleeping. Sevilla lead for the first time in the match.

02:06 (IST)17 Aug 2020
75' Suso goes off

Franco Vazquez comes on for Suso. Into the final 15 minutes now.

02:05 (IST)17 Aug 2020
72' Sevilla waste indirect free kick

After Sergio Reguilon is caught on the left of the United area by Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Sevilla waste the free kick opportunity as Jordan hits the ball and the resulting passing play results in just a goal kick. This game needs a catalyst now. 

01:58 (IST)17 Aug 2020
66' Quite scrappy from both sides

Fouls here, fouls there. Munir escapes a booking for a foul on Williams, and then he is fouled on the other end. Then Reguilon fouls Greenwood. All a bit scrappy in midfield and down the wings with neither team looking in control now.

01:47 (IST)17 Aug 2020
55' Changes for Sevilla

Munir El Haddadi and Luuk de Jong come on for Ocampos and El-Nesyri. 

01:46 (IST)17 Aug 2020
53' Bounou in form in goal

Yassine Bounou is having the game of his life here -- quick reflexes, brilliant timing with his rushing and great positioning so far. After he denied Martial a goal from Bruno's cross, he stops him not once, but twice with his hands.

01:42 (IST)17 Aug 2020
50' United looking deadly

United mean business here early on in the second half as they put the Sevilla goal under siege. First Martial's shot off Bruno's cross is saved by Bounou, and then Rashford's shot is blocked by Fernando's tackle. Attack, after attack, after attack.

01:37 (IST)17 Aug 2020
Second half starts!

And we're back underway at Rhein Energie Stadion in Cologne, and Bounou denies Greenwood early on.

01:19 (IST)17 Aug 2020
HT: Manchester United 1-1 Sevilla

A brilliant first half comes to an end where United were dominating the play towards the end. A Bruno volley and a Rashford snapshot, but nothing too lethal at the Sevilla goal. The match is brilliantly poised here where both the teams enjoyed their fair share of spells, with Sevilla relying on their midfield doing the hard work and United's wingers doing the magic. All to play for now!

01:12 (IST)17 Aug 2020
39' Rashford's attempt saved

Marcus Rashford's free kick from 40 yards out is well saved by Bounou, but the rebound falls to Maguire who hits a cross out to goalkick. Minutes later, he concedes a foul in his own half. It's been that kind of a game so far. 

01:05 (IST)17 Aug 2020
34' Martial shoots just high above the bar

A big, rare chance missed by United here. Pogba and Martial, both of whom haven't been involved much in the game so far, combine near the penalty box with quick passing but Martial curls the ball high above the Sevilla bar. Sevilla is in control though.

00:58 (IST)17 Aug 2020
25' SUSSSSOOOOOOO!

THE FORMER LIVERPOOL MAN EQUALISES! After ages parked inside the United half, Sevilla have finally found their breakthrough. From a throw on the right wing, Sevilla pass the ball around until Sergio Reguilon breaks away from Wan-Bissaka on the left wing and plays a low cross right in the feet of the unmarked Suso, who fires it past De Gea's near post. Game on!

00:48 (IST)17 Aug 2020
14' Chances galore for both teams

The match has opened up a lot more after the goal. After Sevilla went into a quick attack looking for a response, Jesus Navas skied an attempt to the stands. Minutes later, Bruno finds Fred in free space on the other end of the pitch... but the Brazilian fails to double the lead as he hits the side-netting with a wild right-footed shot. Things are getting interesting here.

00:43 (IST)17 Aug 2020
22 penalties for United this season
00:40 (IST)17 Aug 2020
9' BRUNOOOOO!

NO DOUBT AT ALL! Hit hard and towards the top-left corner -- Bruno Fernandes is a master at taking penalties. His 8th UEL goal this season -- the highest. Manchester United get an early lead here, and all pressure's on Sevilla now.

00:39 (IST)17 Aug 2020
7' PENALTY!

Manchester United awarded a penalty here after Rashford's shot is saved by Bounou, but Diego Carlos brought the forward down just after the forward produced a shot. Calamity for Sevilla.

00:38 (IST)17 Aug 2020
5' A slow but eventful start

Both the teams are still finding their feet here in Cologne, but United have started brightly with Bruno in the thick of things. Maguire has headed a corner over the bar, while Sevilla have also made their way into enemy territory once.
