Wissam Ben Yedder ended Manchester United’s prolific campaign in the Champions League, after netting brace to book his team a quarter final spot.
Manchester United had not lost a single home game in European competitions, since 2013, when goals by Luka Modric and Christiano Ronaldo denied them a chance to progress to the quarter finals.
Manchester carried their abject form in the second leg of the round of 16 tie with a catalogue of missed chances. Mourinho’s men would have gone ahead in the 2nd minute had Lukaku been more precise with his shooting.
Sevilla got the first corner of the match, after a shot from Vasquez was sent over the line. Ever Banega floated the ball to the near post but Correa sent the ball over the bar.
Things seemed to change when Ben Yedder came off the bench. Sevilla became bold in their attacking. He took advantage of Pablo Sarabia’s cross and slotted it into United’s net.
The second goal was more dramatic. The Frenchman won a header against Ashley Young, directing the ball towards the net, deflecting against De Gea. Lukaku got one back for United but it was too little too late.
Having been knocked out of the Champions League, the Premier League being a done deal, the F.A cup is the only silverware left to play for.
In other news, Roma ended their quarter final dry spell after overturning a 2-1 first leg loss.
Edin Dzeko made the best out of Kevin Strootman’s through ball, sending it past Andriy Pyatov, scoring the only goal of the match. Roma were unable to do any damage after Ivan Ordet was sent off for shirt pulling.
This will be Roma’s first quarter final since 2008
