Sevilla vs Juventus: summary, score, goals, highlights | Europa League 2022-23 semi-final
Sevilla vs Juventus: as it happened
Thanks for following the live coverage of a fantastic game of football that went right down to the wire!
Sevilla make it through to the Europa League final once again and will play against AS Roma on 31 May at Puskás Aréna in Budapest.
And they will face José Mourinho's AS Roma!
A 0-0 draw in Germany was enough for Italy to have a representative in the final this year.
The party will last long in the Spanish city
Sevilla are through, once again, to the Europa League final.
After the season they have had, after the lows of dipping their toes in the relegation battle in LaLiga, after the despair that the fans have suffered all year, the side are through to the final of what is their competition.
Juventus go out after a valiant effort but overcoming the Spanish side at home, in a ground that was willing to support them through everything, was always going to be a herculean task.
THE STADIUM ERUPTS FOR THE THIRD TIME THIS EVENING
SEVILLA ARE INTO THE EUROPA LEAGUE FINAL
Lamela is down and Sevilla have a free-kick in their own half.
Thirty seconds to go.
We're into the last minute of the match.
The ball fell to the World Cup winner on the edge of the box but his shot was just too high to worry Bono.
PAREDES FIRES OVER THE BAR
En Nesyri clears the cross from Kostic.
A corner for Juventus... Sevilla are suffering.
Sevilla have dropped into a low block and seem prepared to bail water for what is left of the game.
4 added minutes.
We're into the last minute of extra-time... and Bono catches the high ball from Miretti.
Bremer intercepts a pass from Rakitic towards En Nesyri, another that would have seen the striker through on his own. It's been a very strong performance from the centre-back tonight.
Suso has been booked now...
It looks from here that the referee was not aware that Acuña was to be sent off until Paredes went flying over to remind him that the left-back had already been booked.
The Egg has just been shown a second yellow for timewasting!
He took too long with the throw and the referee showed him a yellow.
ACUÑA IS OFF!
Señor Doctor is on for Sevilla as Rakitic is down with that appears to be a fatigue injury.
Miretti handles the ball as he goes to ground and the home side are in no rush to get things rolling again.
Just under 10 minutes to go and Juventus are pushing Sevilla back and look closer than ever to grabbing an equaliser.
The ball was half cleared by Sevilla's defenders and it lands with Chiesa on the right corner of the box. The winger has time and space but his shot is lifted into the stands to the delight of everyone in red and white.
WHAT A HUGE CHANCE FOR JUVENTUS
CHIESA MISSES FROM INSIDE THE BOX
Sevilla defend a Juventus free-kick that is whipped into the box. Gatti andMilik are two huge presences along with Vlahovic.
Juventus attack again and the home side, who look incredibly tired, manage to get the ball away.
Bono collects a low cross from Chiesa as Milik is lurking around the six-yard box. Sevilla have started the final fifteen minutes in a very nervous manner.
A nervous touch from Badé sees the ball bobble out after a long pass from Juventus.
Milik has come on for Cuadrado
And we are off!
Into the final fifteen minutes!
Papu Gómez ON
Fifteen minutes to go for Sevilla to hold on or for Juventus to find an equaliser and potentially take the game to penalties.
The atmosphere inside the stadium has gone past the nervous stage of emotions and is in fully-choreographed support mode! What a noise!
Half-time in extra-time!
Sevilla take the lead as we go into the final 15 minutes!
1 added minute.
Montiel with a big yet fair challenge on Miretti and Danilo reacts by pulling the player's shirt.
Sevilla are still trying to attack Juventus, but they are definitely taking their time with certain stoppages in play, which the Italian team are obviously not taking very well.
Cuadrado takes out Lamela with a ludicrous challenge that is both late and from behind. He gets away without a booking. Is that Casemiro in disguise?
Juventus want a penalty after the ball hit Acuña on the shoulder...
(Suso is fine, by the way).
Suso is on the ground yet the referee waves to play on. The player took a heavy hit on the floor and crashed onto the ground quite badly.
Bryan Gil OFF
There are plenty of fans inside the ground who are crying from the emotion - we've got over 20 minutes to go!
Juventus are looking more dangerous in this period: Bono saves again from Vlahovic who directs a weak header towards goal.
We're underway again and the stadium is singing on all four sides.
Bryan Gil dances past his marker on the left and lofts a cross into the box which Lamela meets with a thunderous header past the Juventus goalkeeper!
THE STADIUM ERUPTS ONCE AGAIN
LAMELA SCORES FOR SEVILLA
BONO WITH A HUGE DOUBLE SAVE
Bono stops a Vlahovic shot after the striker tried to turn back on his left foot to find the perfect angle to bend the ball into the goal. Gudelj defended well against the forward.
The game starts off as it has been for the past 90 minutes: Sevilla have possession and are looking immediately to pin Juventus back into the box so they can fire crosses at them.
Here we go again!
We're underway - again!
Hold me, thrill me, kiss me...
What a game of football we have seen so far tonight. And now we'e got at least 30 minutes more!
Both teams have fought tirelessly but I must say Sevilla probably deserve to be ahead and through to the final. Suso's strike was a fantastic equaliser after it looked like Vlahovic had stunned the Sánchez Pizjuán.
The two teams are finishing their on-pitch team talks and we're almost ready to go again.
That's all... but we've got extra-time coming right up!
RAKITIC HAS HIS SHOT BLOCKED JUST YARDS FROM GOAL
2 added minutes.
Suso's cross finds En Nesyri after 90 minutes of waiting - but Szcezsny is there to tip the ball over the bar!
WHAT A SAVE FROM SZCEZSNY!!!!!!
We're into the last minute of normal time...
Gudelj gets a huge cheer after he cuts out Danilo's counter-attack. The nerves are filtering into the crowd.
Bremer has been brilliant today: he saves Juventus again with another defensive header that clears away Navas' cross.
En Nesyri doesn't see the ball after it bobbles awkwardly inside a crowwd of players and Juventus manage to recover possession on the edge of their own box.
Kostic and Miretti ON
Iling-Junior and Locatelli OFF
A counter-attack from Juventus ends in a corner after Gudelj blocks Vlahovic's cross. The Italians broke like Ferraris there, and Sevilla need to be careful.
I thought the free-kick was too far out to shoot, but Suso disagreed, and fired a laser-guided effort towards goal that the Polish stopper got two firm hands to.
SZCEZSNY SAVES SUSO'S SHOT FROM DISTANCE
Sevilla have a dangerous, central free-kick after Paredes leaves his mark on Bryan Gil.
Juventus have found some late energy and are trying to force their game plan onto the home side.
The screams from the stands every time Sevilla win a corner are simply epic. Another home goal and this place might actually lift off the ground.
Juventus are pinned back with all 11 men inside the box as Sevilla press and look for spaces to shoot or cross. Just over ten to go...
Navas whips in a ferocious cross from the right and En Nesyri is inches from making contact and firing towards goal.
Two big challenges almost crush poor little Bryan Gil but the referee waves play on. Bryan gets up instantly and continues to scuttle around, as he does.
Suso tries an ambitious pass towards En Nesyri but Bremer cuts out the ball that would have seen the Moroccan striker through on goal.
We're back underway. What a noise inside the stadium.
Pass after pass on the edge of the Juventus box forces the away defence to shift from side to side.
Suso takes advantage of a gap in the lines and hits a rocket that explodes off the end of his boot that almost breaks the net behind Szcezsny!
SUSO SCORES FOR SEVILLA AND THE STADIUM ERUPTS
GOLAZO GOLAZO GOLAZO GOLAZO GOLAZO
More crosses come from Sevilla who are constantly looking for the head of En Nesyri.
Nine of them are finding their target in a good position, and Juventus look happy to clear them away.
A big chance for Sevilla after Bryan's shot into the crowd of players hits Ocampos on its way to goal.
We're back underway...
The man has made his mark on the game.
Sevilla get mixed up in the build up and the ball falls to Vlahovic on the edge of the box, who takes a few touches to control the bounce before scooping a calm chip over Bono.
Eek. Di María is asking the Juve bench to explain the change and is not a happy man.
Vlahovic and Chiesa ON
(A very angry) Di María and Kean OFF
Suso's first act of the game is a shot from the edge of the box that fizzes wide.
Kean almost gets on the end of a pass in behind but Bono does well to collect the ball before the striker can reach it.
Rakitic has a shot with his left foot that is skied into the stands. Bryan Gil won the ball back on the edge of the box and slipped past three challenges again before playing the pass to the captain.
Navas sends a cross into the box towards En Nesyri but he's neither a giraffe nor the Loch Ness monster and as a result can't stretch his neck long enough to reach the floating ball.
A simple free-kick came floating in and Bremer was allowed to make contact as Sevilla's players fell asleep, with the ball bouncing agonisingly wide.
BREMER'S HEADER FLIES WIDE!
THE STADIUM WAS SILENCED
With Bryan and Navas on either wing, Sevilla have two players who are the definition of 'squirming'.
They can beat a man by shrinking to the size of a mouse's wallet and slide around challenges that would otherwise see them on the floor. The pair are causing havoc.
A flick from Kean sees Rabiot away and on his own in front of goal. After what feels like thirty touches of the ball after receiving it in a flash, the French midfielder opts to shoot and drags his shot wide. Sevilla get away with one.
RABIOT MISSES THE CHANCE OF THE GAME
Bryan Gil spins on his heels and flies away from the defence like one of those unsuspecting beetles that you don't realise has wings until they take off towards your face.
The Juventus players can't catch him when he gets going.
Sevilla have found a new level of energy and are being pushed on by the crowd. Rakitic has just hit a shot from the edge of the box that is blocked wide.
Juventus are against the ropes at the moment.
ANOTHER SAVE FROM SZCEZSNY
Bryan dived in from the left and fizzed a low drive towards goal!
The ball pinged off a few heads inside the box and could have ended anywhere, but the goalkeeper reacted well to clasp it in his hands.
Ocampos asks for more from the crowd after a heroic run from his own half with the ball that ends in a corner to the home side.
Rabiot skipped in from the right, dancing past one, two, three challenges before his shot was hit that went low and central and into Bono's hands.
CHANCE FOR JUVENTUS!
A good save from Bono.
Sevilla waste a chance to hit a long free-kick into the box after they play it short and eventually see themselves pressed by Juventus.
Quite a frantic start from both sides who can't keep hold of the ball.
Acuña, who is quite hilariously known as 'The Egg', fires a shot wide from distance.
And we're off for the second half!
No changes from either side.
The players are in the tunnel for the second 45!
The stadium has been a bear pit for 45 minutes.
What a fantastic atmosphere we have all experienced at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán. Just look at that stand!
Monchi was not a happy man at the half-time interview
I'm not surprised. Looking at the replay, it's incredible how Cuadrado's challenge on Óliver did not given.
"It was a kick and it was inside the box. Unless they've changed the rules, which I don't think they have, it was a penalty."
Sevilla have had more attacking threat
Their crossing has been superb, they just need one to find En Nesyri's head in the second half...
What a fantastic half of football that has had just about everything you cold ask for: a fantastic atmosphere, great saves, huge chances, disallowed goals, bad puns and brilliant, attacking football!
Juventus are playing a lot better than in the first leg, and definitely have come to show their worth in Spain. Sevilla, for their part, have thrown a million crosses into the box and the crowd are carrying them up the pitch at every opportunity.
Both Szcezsny and Bono have pulled off fantastic saves and we have seen flowing moves from both sides in what has been a breathless first 45 minutes.
Sevilla probably deserve to be ahead and the penalties in question - the handball and the foul from Cuadrado - have already filled tomorrow's nwespapers.
And that's all for now!
What an exciting 45 we've just seen.
NO PENALTY. An incredible decision.
I have no idea how that is not a penalty. Cuadrado went in on Óliver with his studs up on the line of the 18-yard box, making clear contact with the player.
Óliver Torres it was who went down after Cuadrado slid in ferociously with his studs up.
The game is still ongoing... it hasn't stopped yet...
Oh my, the crowd have nearly thrown the stadium down after a HUGE challenge in the box on Acuña, which the referee has allowed...
Sevilla look to end the half the stronger side, but a few misplaced passes allow Juve to step up and threaten their defence.
4 added minutes.
Kean almost gets away from the Sevilla defenders after he takes a huge touch behind the line and backs himself to win in a foot race. Bono comes flying out of his goal after smelling the danger and collects the ball.
Danilo tackles Navas but Fernando races back to chase down his compatriot and recovers possession for the home side.
Another stoppage after Kean and Ocampos begin to push each other... handshakes all round and everyone is now best friends again.
Rabiot got on the end of a cross after Paredes broke through the lines, but he was offisde.
We're back underway...
Gudelj got the ball in the clearance, but it was a hugely powerful body smash that most WWE stars would be proud of.
Fagioli can't continue... it looked like his collarbone took a huge hit.
Ouch. Gudelj throws his whole body into Fagioli, man-bun and all. That's going to hurt in the morning.
Bryan Gil squirms away from the Juve midfield and plays the ball right to Navas, who finds Óliver inside the box. The midfielder hits a powerful shot towards goal that is saved by Szcezsny.
ANOTHER SAVE FROM THE JUVENTUS GOALKEEPER
Szcezsny with another save!
Óliver's header into the ground is caught after another cross causes Juventus all sorts of problems!
The Italian side are stuck in a moment they can't get out of.
The striker got the ball in a tight angle and his difficult shot skimmed off the far post!
Sevilla go up the other end and a shot from Rakitic is fired over after a wonderful flick over the top from Óliver.
KEAN OFF THE POST!
Rakitic is the latest player to head over one of the twenty-five million crosses that Sevilla are peppering the Juve box with over the past few minutes.
Big shout for handball after Navas' cross is controlled well - too well according to the Sevilla fans - by Fagioli. Nothing given.
What a hit from the left back, who smacked a wild shot from a central position after his run broke Juventus' midfield line. Szcezsny got a fantastically strong hand to the ball.
ACUÑA ALMOST SCORES A SCREAMER!
Another chance for Juve, again for Di María. A low shot is driven low from distance that is dragged just wide of the goal.
What an upturn in intensity we've seen over the last few minutes!
The winger got in behind of a wide-open Sevilla defence and Di María went for the chip instead of firing a low shot towards Bono - the shot looped wide!
DI MARÍA MISSES A GREAT CHANCE!
GATTI STOPS A CERTAIN GOAL!
It looked as though En Nesyri was through and on his own... but Gatti managed to get his body in the way of the ball and stop the attack!
The goal line technology has shown us that the ball did NOT cross the line from Ocampos' header, despite half of the ground believing it did.
Navas got on the end of an early free-kick and the cross was whipped in towards goal, and somehow Szcezsny got down to stop the header from Ocampos!
WHAT A HUGE SAVE FROM SZCEZSNY
The game is swinging one way and then the other: both teams are having nice mini-spells of possession and things look quite even as it stands.
Juve, for their part, seem to have sewn up the early gaps that were gaping after the first whistle went.
Just an update on how things are going on the tactics board: Juve are playing their 3-5-1-1 with ex-Madrid man Ángel Di María lurking just behind ex-Everton striker Kean.
Some nice passing from Sevilla ends with Navas' cross that doesn't find their number 15 up front.
Gudelj tries his luck form distance but the ball floats high and wide and possibly into the Guadalquivir river.
Acuña risks a yellow with his angry reaction after Locatelli goes down under the challenge from the Argentine. Sevilla are dropping deeper by the second and Mendilibar is not a happy bunny rabbit on the sideline.
Juventus now with some zippy possession between the midfielders, and they all of a sudden look dangerous.
Sometimes you can't make it on your own and Sevilla definitely needed Bono there...
Gatti's header thundered towards the goal from the corner and Bono got two strong hands to the shot to push the ball away!
WHAT A SAVE FROM BONO!
Badé heads over a shot from Fagioli after the young midfielder found some space on the edge of the box.
Torres hoofs a ball over the top and forces En Nesyri to chase it behind the Juventus defence. Sevilla's early charge of the light brigade seems to have calmed, at least for now.
Kean goes into the naughty boys' book early on after stabbing his toes into Gudelj's stomach. That could easily have been a red card.
Juventus get their first proper touches of the ball, but Sevilla press them like wild dogs...
Óliver Torres is down after being clattered by Rabiot. He looks OK to continue.
Another cross from Sevilla - this time from Navas - is cleared away by a desperate Juventus defence, who are outnumbered by thousands of white shirts.
Rakitic tries a shot from the edge of the box that is blocked; Juventus seem to have huge holes everywhere and especially on the wings, where their tackling is weak. Sevilla are repeatedly stabbing the ball in behind to great effect.
Acuña is feeling full of fire in the early stages, he's just spun past Cuadrado with what I believe the youth of today call 'a five-star skill'.
There is a huge space down Sevilla's left side where I imagine Gatti is supposed to be. Acuña and Bryan from The Beatles are having a lot of impact in the opening minutes.
Oof, En Nesyri gets a head on the cross from Acuña after a nicely worked move from the corner. Juventus defend well.
Rakitic snatches the ball from the feet of Cuadrado inside the box and all of a sudden he's away, but his cross is poor and is blocked out for a corner.
CHANCE FOR SEVILLA!
Bryan Gil gets a huge roar after putting the ball through Locatelli's legs on the left side. Sevilla have started brightly.
I can't hear myself think, the atmosphere is simply incredible.
And we're off!
The ball is rolling in Sevilla!
The away side get us going from left to right.
Dutchman Dani Makkiele is the referee today.
And here come the teams!
And now it's time for the Sevilla anthem, which is, without a doubt, one of the best in Europe...
What an atmosphere!
The stadium is bouncing! Four walls of red shirts and flags are flying and swaying in the evening sun as the team looks to get to another Europa League final!
"Nobody loves it like we do" reads the huge banner that has appeared on one side of the ground.
Almost ready to go!
The players have finished their warmups and are headed down the tunnel for the final team talks before kick off!
With just minutes to go, here's the info on whether the winner of the final will be allowed to make the step up the Europa League.
A reminder of the starting XIs:
Sevilla: Bono; Navas, Badé, Gudelj, Acuña; Fernando, Rakitic, Ó Torres; Bryan Gil, En Nesyri, Ocampos
Juventus: Szcezsny; Gatti, Bremer, Danilo; Cuadrado, Rabiot, Fagioli, Locatelli, Iling Junior, Di María; Kean
Juventus have returned around 1,000 tickets
The Sevilla stadium will not be full tonight as it seems that plenty of Juventus fans are expressing their anger with the side by returning their tickets for tonight's game.
You eagle-eyed readers may have noticed that the scores are currently level as we get ready for today's game - but what happens if the two teams can't be separated after 90 minutes?
- Are things the same as in the Champions League?
- Do they go straight to penalties?
- Do they have extra-time?
- Do they play rock, paper, scissors?
Well, here's an explainer so you can find out.
Paul Pogba will miss tonight's game against Sevilla due to an injury he picked up against Cremonese and could even be ruled out for the rest of the season.
The injury comes as a major blow to his morale after the French midfielder had been sidelined for over a year with a knee issue which forced him to miss the 2022 World Cup. The club say he has started his recovery process.
The players are out on the pitch!
Nice and early from Juventus, who have already been out to inspect the pitch.
The Italian side have only won 2 of their last 17 away games in knockout rounds in Spain, with their only clean sheet in those coming in a 0-0 draw vs Barcelona in 2016.
And here's the Sevilla starting XI!
Navas - Badé - Gudelj - Acuña
Fernando - Rakitic - Ó Torres
Ocampos - En Nesyri - Bryan Gil
Early team news...
The news is filtering out that Sevilla are unchanged from the first leg while Juventus manager Allegri has made 5 changes to his side, including the addition of Kean to the XI.
Once I get official confirmation, you'll be the first to know.
Mexican winger/full-back Jesús Corona spoke about how he felt after coming back from an injury that had kept him out for months this season.
"It has been a moment in my life that I never imagined I would go though. I know that life brings difficult things and that there will be many more ahead - hopefully not many".
"But I never thought something like that would happen to me. I had a really hard time, and my family did too."
What's going on in the other game?
Well, it's an intriguing clash between Bayer Leverkusen and AS Roma. If anything juicy happens in that one, I'll let you know.
In the first game, the Italian side led by José Mourinho came away with the advantage over Xabi Alonso's men, but now they are at home...
Sevilla are the kings of this competition, but what is there record in Europe's second tournament? Well, it's pretty impressive, to be honest.
Here's Sevilla's superb Europa League yearly breakdown.
The Juve dressing room is ready for the players!
Their kit is, for me, pink and blue. Let's see what Adidas call it...
Well, it's officially known as... "pink and blue". Not that exciting in all honesty.
What is exciting is that Juventus say that pink and blue are "two historical club colours that come together for a fresh, eye-catching kit. The star, reimagined as part of a kaleidoskope pattern, acts as a symbol of magic that represents the history of the club." Great stuff.
How they got here: Sevilla
The 6-time winners made it to the semi-finals after beating Erik ten Hag's Manchester United in the previous round. A crazy draw at Old Trafford gave them the confidence boost needed to thump the English side 3-0 at home in the return leg.
Sevilla dropped out of the Champions League after a difficult group stage that saw them defeated by Manchester City and Dortmund, and they took on PSV in the Europa League shortly after, slipping by them 3-2 on aggregate. Fenerbahçe came next and the Spanish side won again, albeit with an equally slim scoreline of 2-1.
If Juventus win the Europa League, they'll automatically be given a spot in next year's Champions League... or will they?
The Italian side had a 15-point penalty reversed earlier in the season but could still be excluded from next season’s UEFA competitions.
In Serie A, they currently sit second thanks to their points being re-awarded, but it seems like the battle is not over and UEFA may have the last laugh.
Here is all the information you need on whether or not The Old Lady will be able to play in Europe's elite competition next season.
Sevilla's amazing home record:
Sevilla have never lost a two-legged tie in the Europa League knockout stages when playing the second leg at home, as the Sánchez Pizjuán certainly knows how to whip up a terrifying atmosphere for the away side.
How things went last time:
Magical, magical Sevilla: they simply have something when it comes to this tournament, and the result - a near win - against Juventus in Turin showed that. Their season has largely been terrible, with relegation looming for large parts of it, but José Luis Mendilibar's introduction into the side has seen the side given new life, and they have flown upwards in the table and now sit comfortably on enough points to see them safe.
The game in Italy was a masterclass from Ocampos who showed his ability with a wonderful performance. En Nesyri's goal on 26 minutes looked to settle the result and seal a historic victory for the Spanish side, but it was Federico Gatti who managed to equalise in the 97th minute of the game.
The home side will be relying on their famously noisy crowd tonight which is looking to see the team progress to yet another final in what is undoubtedly their competition.
Remember, dear reader, if you would like to follow the action with your eyes as well as with your, erm, eyes, then make sure to check out the link above, which has all the information you could possibly wish for on how to watch the game on TV or online.
Sevilla: A double boost for Sevilla comes in good time as both Ocampos and Suso look fit to return to action. Marcao is out, as is Joan Jordan, and Lioc Bade is the only doubt before the lineups are released.
Juventus: Paul Pogba was just 22 minutes into his first start for Juve in 390 days when a thigh injury saw him leave the pitch in tears. Leonardo Bonucci went off against Sevilla with what looked like a hamstring issue. Defender Mattia De Sciglio has a ligament issue that will force him to miss the game.
