Sevilla vs Manchester United summary: En-Nesyri goal, De Gea mistake, score, goals and highlights | Europa League
Sevilla vs Manchester United: As it happened
Sevilla cruise past sorry Manchester United
A resurgent Sevilla blew aside Manchester United to book their place in the semi-finals of the Europa League.
The Spanish side are languishing at the wrong end of the table domestically but once again showed that they are the team for the big occasion. The atmosphere inside the Estadio Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan was bouncing from the start and the home side fed off the energy in the stands.
Within the opening ten minutes three Sevilla players pounced on an ill-judged pass to Harry Maguire and picked the United captain's pocket. The ball fell to Youssef En-Nesyri and the Moroccan forward slotted coolly past David De Gea.
The hosts could have made it two before the break but were made to wait until the opening minute of the second half to double their lead. Ivan Rakitic swung in a dangerous corner and Loic Bade flicked a pinpoint header past De Gea.
Manchester United threw on Marcus Rashford, Wout Weghorst and Fred in a bid to add fresh impetus but it was Sevilla who looked the more likely to score again.
And they did, albeit thanks to a calamitous mistake from De Gea. The United stopper sought to control a ball on the edge of his box but succeeded only in passing the ball to the left foot of En-Nesyri who clipped home his second.
Sevilla saw out the 3-0 win in front of a raucous home support. If tonight's performance is anything to go by, they will be a match for anyone in the Europa League.
We're down to four teams in the Europa League after a thrilling night of action of Thursday. There were late goals, shocking upsets and plenty of goals across the four matches.
Here are the four teams who have booked their place in the semi-finals...
Oh dear, David
The Manchester United goalkeeper divides opinion. He is one of the finest shot-stoppers in the world and has keep a top performer for United over the past decade. But his struggles with his feet continued tonight.
He put his side under pressure early on when an ill-judged pass to Harry Maguire led to the first goal. With five minutes remaining he miscontrolled a long ball on the edge of his box which handed the tie to Sevilla.
Much has been said about his suitability for a ball-playing system like Ten Hag's. The was little in tonight's performance to suggest that he has what it takes.
We saw a fantastic all-round performance from Sevilla tonight but it was a neatly taken brace from Youssef En-Nesyri that started and finished a memorable evening in Seville.
Twice he pounced on defensive lapses in the Manchester United backline to put his side into the final four of the Europa League.
'Can we play you every week?'
Sevilla extend their brilliant record against Manchester United with an emphatic 3-0 victory at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan. In the past five years the two sides have met five times and the Sevillians have had the better of every tie.
Ahead of this tie the gap between the two sides, in United's favour, appeared to be the biggest to date. Not on tonight's evidence.
More Sevilla magic in the Europa League
Celebrations in Seville after another memorable night in Europe. They may not be at their best in the league this season but there is something about this side that makes them a truly formidable outfit in knock-out competition.
A fantastic performance and a well-deserved win.
And there we go!
What a showing from the Europa League specialists. A richly deserved three-goal victory over Manchester United that could, in all honesty, have been even more.
A late booking for the left back.
Added time: Four Minutes
Four more minutes of relentless bouncing for the Sevilla fans, can their calf muscles take it?
That's the only real jeopardy left after a brilliant performance from the home side.
Chance! Manchester United
A long punt downfield from Luke Shaw finds Marcus Rashford running in behing the Sevilla defence.
He's pushed wide by the recovering defending and nudged out of play, but he does at least win a corner for his side. Nearly into added time now.
What a night for Sevilla
Fighting against relegation for much of the season, Sevilla have absolutely pulled apart Manchester United tonight. The La Liga side are three goals up on the night, 5-2 on aggregate, and deservedly so.
In the stands the Sevilla fans are absolutely bouncing and savouring every moment of the final few minutes.
Sevilla in the Europa League, what more can you say?
What on earth was David De Gea doing?
A long ball was punted forward by the hosts and the United goalkeeper charged out to meet it. His first touch turned into a 10-yard pass and En-Nesyri pounced on the loose ball to pass the ball into an empty net.
Sevilla again, En-Nesyri again, awful from Manchester United again.
Chance! Manchester United
We're nearly into the final ten here and Manchester United are getting increasingly desperate. The ball falls to Casemiro on the edge of the Sevilla box and the Brazilian scoops the ball towards the goal.
Not entirely sure what he was aiming for but the ball bobbles tantalisingly across the Sevilla box.
Goal kick for the hosts.
They are starting to sit back more, but the home side maintains a real threat from set pieces. An Ivan Rakitic corners is scrambled clear but the Croatian picks up the ball out wide and fires low and hard across the United box.
The ball, somehow, evades everyone and goes out for a goal kick.
You get the sense that there could well be another goal here, but it could be either side who make the breakthrough.
CLOSE! Manchester United
What a strike from Christian Eriksen!
The Dane steps up and fires a wicked dipping shot towards the top corner. Bono is at full stretch but get nowhere near the ball as it zips just wide of the post.
Free kick: Manchester United
Finally, a decent spell of possession from the visitors with some neat build-up play in the final third. The Sevilla defence repels two hopeful balls into the box but Fred is felled 25 yards from goal.
A chance for a strike here...
Fred / Marcel Sabitzer
The Brazilian enters the fray in Seville.
Unless Manchester United can bring about a pretty major turnaround in the final 25 minutes, Erik ten Hag's side will soon be vacating the Europa League.
Sevilla have been by far the better side in the first hour of action and are deservedly two goals to the good. The home crowd, sensing another famous victory, are enjoying every single second of it.
Scarves are being swirled around heads, the stands are bouncing, and the Sevilla players are taking every opportunity to rally their support.
Something big is needed from Manchester United here.
Close: Manchester United
Casemiro drops a shoulder on the edge of the Sevilla box and curls a loopy left-footed shot goalwards. Bono sees it coming though and palms the ball comfortably away.
The winger kicks out in frustration at Marcos Acuna and is rightly given a booking.
"We have to use emotion as a tool, but you have to control it as well" - Erik ten Hag, yesterday.
Chance! Manchester United
First real opening for Marcus Rashford since his halftime introduction.
The Englishman runs onto a pass behind the Sevilla defence but takes a heavy touch and the ball is smothered by Bono.
The former Real Madrid man goes into the book, and he looks absolutely astonshed.
Wout Weghorst / Anthony Martial
The Dutchman joins Marcus Rashford and Antony in the United frontline.
It should be three.
The hosts win the ball from a Rakitic corner and it bounces around the six yard box for what seems like an age. Legs are dangled and bodies are hurled but the ball stays out of the United net.
The hosts could almost kill the tie with another goal here. Can United stay strong?
Dream start to the second half for Sevilla as they convert the first opportunity that comes their way. The marking was a little loose in the United box but it was a sensational header from Bade, managing to flick the ball over his shoulder and past a stranded David De Gea.
What can Manchester United manage now?
What a start for Sevilla! An early corner, a great stooping header from Loic Bade and a two-goal lead for the hosts!
And we're off for the second half
Improvement needed from Manchester United to turn this around
Other scores at half time in the Europa League
As it stand, Sevilla, Juventus, Bayern Leverkusen and Feyenoord will be competing in the semi-finals of the Europa League.
45 to go
Half time recap
Well, what a half of football for Sevilla.
Struggling towards the wrong end of La Liga for much of the season the Europa League specialists are now 45 minutes away from another famous win in this competition. And they have certainly deserved it.
The hosts have shown incredible intensity throughout that half, both with and without the ball.
Out of possession they have denied any space for Manchester United's midfield and strangled the service to the forwards.
With it, Sevilla have looked devastating on the break and could easily have added to their early goal. Lucas Ocampos in particular has been a constant thorn in the side of the United defence and nearly doubled his side's lead with a brilliant finish.
Work to be done for Erik ten Hag to turn this around...
Whistle blows for half time
What a half for Sevilla...
he hosts have dominated the opening 45 and could easily be two ahead. Manchester United can count themselves lucky but know that big improvement is needed if they are to turn it around in the second half.
It's end to end stuff to finish the half!
The corner kick is cleared and Sevilla launch a lightening-quick counter that sees the ball fired across the United box. It's nudged out for a corner by Antony and the visitors are able to clear their lines.
Chance! Manchester United
The visitors manage a foray forward and Casemiro finds space on the edge on the box. His shot is deflected wide for a corner.
Four minutes of added time...
And Manchester United will be glad to see the end of the opening 45.
The hosts are really pushing now, Suso skips past Dalot on the right and dinks a lovely ball into the box. A ball just too high, however, for the Sevilla forwards.
OFFSIDE: Goal disallowed
With apologies to any Sevilla fans cruelly led on by a recent post, the goal is ruled out for a fairly marginal offside.
Still 1-0 on the night, 3-2 to Sevilla on aggregate.
What a strike! The hosts are two goals to the good and deserve it.
Lucas Ocampos fires the ball into the top corner from just inside the box.
But wait, VAR.....
The hosts have looked the better side throughout this half and they work a decent opening for Eric Lamela on the break.
Quick passing, forward runs, and some neat footwork from Lamela. Unfortunately a rather weak effort to finish. That's the blueprint for Sevilla now.
OK, think we've worked out the Sevilla change:
Nemanja Gujelj has replaced Macao in the heart of the defence...
Ivan Rakatic has moved further back in midfield...
Eric Lamela has taken his spot as the attacking midfielder...
And Suso has replaced the former Spurs man on the left wing.
Suso / Macao
Confirmation of that change, right winger Suso replaces the burly defender.
Let's see how Sevilla set up now...
Macao down injured for the hosts
Here's certainly been in the action this evening. The big centre half has gone down under a challenge from and it looks like he won't be able to continue.
Seville ready Suso to replace him
Sevilla getting the best of United's midfield
We've seen a frenetic pace in the opening quarter of the game here in Seville, one that the hosts have undoubtedly got the better of. Manchester United are looking to build the play through the middle but are struggling to break through Sevilla's compact shape.
It's heating up in Seville...
Marcel Sabitzer goes flying in on Marcao, possibly dolling out a bit of payback for an earlier foul.
Casemiro punts the ball away after the free-kick is given and is slightly lucky to avoid a booking.
Pre-match Erik ten Hag spoke about his side needing to control their emotions tonight. Let's see if they can...
Sevilla hit the wall with a free kick
Ivan Rakitic steps up for a free kick on the edge of the box but can only fire into the United wall.
The visitors launch a counter attack and Antony wins a corner kick for his side
Manchester United are struggling to get a hold of the ball here. The hosts, roared on by the crowd, are pressing in midfield and denying United the chance to get their wide players into the game.
The hosts take an early lead
It's a nightmare for Harry Maguire but Sevilla are in dreamland here, with a 3-2 lead in the tie.
The fans are really up for this now as Marcos Acuña flies into a challenge in front of the dugouts.
Oh Harry Maguire...
The United captain was played the ball by De Gea on the edge of his box, surrounding by three Sevilla forwards. The trio pounced on Maguire's attempted pass and En-Nesyri was on hand to slot the ball past De Gea.
Manchester United appear to be setting up with Eriksen and Casemiro playing fairly close together in a double pivot, with Sabitzer given freedom to roam further ahead.
Given Sabitzer's first leg brace, Ten Hag may be looking to make the most of his attacking energy.
BIG tackle from Marcao
The Sevilla centre half clatters into Marcel Sabitzer on the touchline, giving away a free kick in a dangerous area. United demand a card but the referee is satisfied with the foul.
Eriksen takes but the free kick is punched away by Bono in the Sevilla goal.
Peeep... and we're underway!
Manchester United get us started in this Europa League quarter-final second leg
What an atmosphere in Seville!
The home crowd have had more than their fair share of European success in recent seasons. With Yousef En-Nesyri back in the starting XI and a 2-2 draw from the first leg, the Sevilla fans will be confident of another famous night in this competition.
We're just moments from kick-off now...
Sevilla vs Manchester United: H2H
There's just over ten minutes until kick-off in Seville and both sides are readying themselves for a massive Europa League clash. So, lets take a second to look at their performances in this year's competition.
Manchester United create much more than Sevilla, but tonight's hosts have a knack of getting the job done in the Europa League.
In historic terms Sevilla have the edge over the Red Devils. The two sides have met four times before tonight and Sevilla are yet to lose.
Will tonight be the night for Manchester United?
Erik ten Hag: 'We dropped a level'
“I think we played for over 60 minutes quite well. Then the last 30 minutes we dropped a level and we became passive. It is not acceptable and we know that, you see what happened when you are playing a game for only 60 minutes.”
“You cannot do it and when you do, you get punished. You have to be aware of it.”
Manchester United arrive at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan
The Red Devils got off to a flying start in the first leg at Old Trafford but were pegged back by two late own goals. Can Manchester United take control of the game in Seville, or will the hosts take the initiative?
Less than half an hour to go until kick-off in the Europa League quarter-final...
Will Manchester United miss Bruno Fernandes?
Manchester United are without Bruno Fernandes tonight after the Portuguese playmaker picked up a booking in the first leg at Old Trafford. Fernandes has been a key part of United's resurgence under Erik ten Hag this season, but the stats suggest that the team can perform without him.
In fact, Manchester United have a higher win percentage without Fernandes in the team.
But you can be sure that Manchester United fans would much rather have him available tonight. The 28-year-old has contributed ten goals and 13 assists in all competitions so far this campaign.
