Glory for Sevilla! Mourinho loses first European final


Sevilla claimed their seventh UEFA Europa League trophy after defeating AS Roma on penalties, following a 1-1 draw even after extra time.

Despite Jose Mourinho’s unbeaten record in a European finals, and leading Roma to their second consecutive final, it was Sevilla who emerged victorious in a frantic encounter.



Paulo Dybala opened the scoring for AS Roma with some neat work on the left flank, but Gianluca Mancini turned the ball into his own net for an unfortunate own-goal in the second half, drawing the Spanish side level.

The game ended without a winner in 90 minutes, and both teams remained inseparable still after extra time, so the encounter was decided on Penalties.
