Europa: Sevilla launch late fightback to draw with Man Utd

Of course, we have to learn that we have to kill the game.

Sabitzer, who is on loan from Bayern Munich, netted his first European goal for United in the 14th minute, when he controlled a pinpoint pass from Bruno Fernandes and shot past keeper Bono.


The Austrian doubled his tally seven minutes later, latching on to a fine pass from Anthony Martial and finishing well.

Sabitzer, however, said it was tough to find words after his teams late meltdown.


A rollercoaster, Sabitzer said. We had to finish the game off, its a draw, was not what we wanted, have to go to Seville and get it down there.

We had the chances, we were confident in the game and I think we controlled the game, but unfortunately we gave easy goals away.


Martinez appeared to suffer a serious ankle injury and was carried off the pitch by two Sevilla players who are his Argentina team mates.

United, bidding for their second trophy of the season after winning the League Cup, thought they had scored seconds after kickoff, but Jadon Sanchos effort was disallowed for offside.


Sevilla, languishing in the bottom half of La Liga, were outplayed in the first half but they nearly got on the scoreboard seconds before the interval.

This was when De Gea stopped Tianguy Ninazous closerange header and Raphael Varane cleared it off the line.



Manchester United conceded two late own goals to allow Sevilla to snatch a 22 draw in the first leg of their Europa League quarterfinal at Old Trafford on Thursday.

Marcel Sabitzers quickfire double in the first half put Erik ten Hags team in control of the tie, but Sevilla, record sixtimes Europa League champions, pulled one back in the 84th minute.


This was when Jesus Navass shot pinged off the feet of Tyrell Malacia and keeper David de Gea into the net.

Manchester United were reduced to 10 men when defender Lisandro Martinez was carried off injured and Youssef EnNesyris stoppagetime header glanced off Harry Maguire into the goal to give Sevilla a huge lift ahead of next weeks second leg.


I think we had the game in hand, Ten Hag told reporters.

We should have scored three or four. . .

We then conceded two own goals and thats bad luck.


We have to deal with it.
