Man United Knocked Out Of Champions League With Defeat To Sevilla
Manchester United were knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage after an awful performance ended in a 2-1 home defeat by Sevilla.
Substitute Wissam Ben Yedder struck twice in four second-half minutes on Tuesday to send Sevilla into the quarterfinals for the first time in 60 years as United suffered a first European home defeat since Alex Ferguson‘s Champions League farewell in 2013.
After posing little threat in the goalless first leg, United again looked second best against the La Liga side, though Marouane Fellaini‘s thumping effort did draw Sergio Rico into a save and the away goalkeeper kept out Jesse Lingard‘s low strike.
The visitors were deserving winners as they controlled the game throughout, but had to wait for Ben Yedder’s introduction as a substitute 18 minutes from time to add a clinical finish by taking his Champions League tally for the season to eight goals in seven appearances.
Ben Yedder put Sevilla in front two minutes later when he blasted into the bottom corner before heading in a second shortly after.
Romelu Lukaku lashed home from close range with seven minutes remaining, but it proved to be merely a consolation.
United exit the competition along with Tottenham, but Premier League leaders Manchester City and Liverpool progressed to Friday’s quarter-final draw. Chelsea can join them if they beat Barcelona on Wednesday.
