Sevilla crowned Europa League champions after a five-goal thriller

Published

on

Sevilla won the Europa League for a record sixth time, with Luuk de Jong scoring twice in a 3-2 win in the final over Inter.

This exhilarating match saw the pendulum swing back and forth, with Romelu Lukaku giving Inter the lead after just five minutes.

Diego Carlos conceded his third penalty kick in his third match, felling Lukaku to give the Belgian the chance to convert from the spot.

Sevilla levelled soon after as de Jong added to his semi final winner against Manchester United with another headed goal, this time guiding home a Jesus Navas cross. And the Dutch striker scored another just after the half-hour mark to put the Spaniards head.

Inter hit back before the break, with Diego Godin beating Bono with a header from a Marcelo Brozovic freekick, but it was Sevilla who struck the decisive blow in the second half, with a Carlos overhead kick diverted into the net by the outstretched leg of the unfortunate Lukaku.
