Europa League, round of 16, first leg

Villarreal 1 – Sevilla 3

Sevilla have a foot and a half in the quarter finals after a 1-3 victory at Villarreal on Thursday evening. Bad luck had paired together the two remaining Spanish sides, but the defending champions got off to a best possible start when Vitolo put them ahead from Gameiro’s assist with under fifteen seconds gone, the fastest goal in Europa League history. Vietto hit the crossbar soon afterwards and Jaume Costa went close with a header, but midway through the first half M’Bia got on the end of a Trémoulinas cross to head a second past Sergio Asenjo. Aleix Vidal came close to a third when he hit the bar before the break, but just three minutes after the restart Vietto got one back after Musacchio set him up, the referee consulting with his fellow officials about a possible offside before finally awarding the goal. However two minutes after that Gameiro restored the two goal cushion after Iborra headed across a Banega free kick, and although Campbell, Cheryshev and Moreno all tried their luck later on, the scoreline remained unchanged.
