Sevilla have qualified for the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) after they surprisingly defeated Manchester United 2-1 on aggregate in their last 16 tie.
Substitute Wissem Ben Yedder was the hero for the Spanish side as he scored two goals in four minutes just after coming on to hand his side a 2-0 lead before Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for the hosts in the final ten minutes.
Vicenzo Montella’s men thereafter held on for the 2-1 scoreline at Old Trafford thus securing a 2-1 aggregate win over the Red Devils after a goalless affair in the first leg 20 days ago.
With the win, Sevilla secure a last eight berth for the first time in 60 years (since 1958).
Italian side AS Roma are also through to the quarterfinals after star striker Edin Dzeko scored very early in the second half to give the capital club a 1-0 win over 10-man Shakthar Donetsk who had Ivan Ordets sent off in the second half.
Roma secure passage into the last eight on away goals having lost 2-1 in the away leg in Ukraine three weeks ago.
