– Wolves vs Sevilla saw the Premier League side crash out of Europa after defeat in Nyon, Switzerland
– Lucas Ocampos’ late goal in the Europa League quarter final tie was enough to send Sevilla to the last four
– The La Liga giants will now play Man United in the semis slated for Sunday, August 16
Man United will take on Sevilla in the Europa League semis after the La Liga giants saw off Wolves in the last eight.
Lucas Ocampos’ 88th-minute header was enough to sink Wolves on Tuesday night, August 11, as Sevilla confirmed their place in the competition’s semis.
Both sides had played out a barren draw in the first half of the clash played in Nyon, Switzerland, with Wolves squandering a golden chance to go ahead inside 13 minutes of the match.
This came after the Premier League side won a penalty after Sevilla’s Diego Carlos tripped Adam Traore in the dangerous area.
Raul Jimenez stepped up to take the spot-kick, only for the Mexican to miss the target after Yassine Bonou who was in goal for Sevilla saved the effort.
Youssef En-Nesyri had a chance to put the Spanish side ahead in the 22nd minute but had to watch as his powerful header flew wide.
With the first half ending goalless, both sides showed clear intent to score in the early minutes of the second but none was able to find the back of the net.
With the match destined for extra time, Sevilla netted the ultimate match winner in the 88th minute through Ocampos who flicked a lovely header across goal from Banega’s cross.
The victory means Lopetegui’s men are through to the semis and will now battle Man United for a chance to reach the finals.
United booked a place in the last four after a hard-fought win over FC Copenhagen on Monday, August 10, in Cologne.
