Sevilla, the biggest winners of the Europa League titles, defeated Manchester United in the semi-finals of their favorite competition, with Youssef En Nesyri scoring twice in a categorical 3-0 victory on Thursday that secured qualification on aggregate. of 5×2.
Both of En Nesyri’s goals came after mistakes by United goalkeeper David de Gea when trying to play with his feet, in an apathetic performance full of errors by the English team.
Sevilla were relentless with their high pressure and United, who led the first leg 2-0 before conceding two late goals, never threatened to return to the game in the noisy atmosphere at the packed Sanchez Pizjuan stadium.
“I’ve never seen an atmosphere like this in my entire life,” En Nesyri told Movistar Plus. “I’m very happy for the two goals and for the fans who supported us until the end. We have to stick together, with the fans, because that’s how we go far.”
Languishing in the bottom half of the Spanish league table during a difficult season in which two managers have already been sacked, Sevilla rediscovered their best form at Old Trafford, pulling out a 2-2 draw late in the first game.
In the second leg, Sevilla took just eight minutes to break the deadlock after De Gea played a pass to Harry Maguire, who was tackled by Erik Lamela, and En Nesyri pounced on the loose ball to finish from close range.
Sevilla will face Juventus in the semifinals.
