Manchester United to face Sevilla in the Europa League semi-finals on Sunday after the Spanish club defeated Wolverhampton in their quarter-final.
(African Stand) — Manchester United will face Sevilla in the UEFA Europa League semi-finals on Sunday after the Spanish club defeated Wolverhampton in their quarter-final.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men booked a place in the last four by recording a 1-0 win over FC Copenhagen thanks to a confident Bruno Fernandes penalty that was scored in extra-time.
We now know the reward for that victory is an exciting meeting with a Sevilla side that earned a slender but dominant 1-0 win over Wolves at the MSV Arena in Duisburg.
Wolves made a decent start to the quarter-final by earning an early penalty, but striker Raul Jiminez saw his effort saved by the goalkeeper, and the Spanish club controlled the game from thereon.
Sevilla enjoyed 75 percent of the possession and tallied 17 shots at goal, but their winning goal did not arrive until Lucas Ocampos headed home in the 88th minute.
Elsewhere, Shakhtar Donetsk cruised to a comfortable 4-1 win over Basel to set up a semi-final against Internazionale, which will take place on Monday night at the Dusseldorf Arena.
