Spanish La Liga club, Sevilla has made history by carrying the Europa League trophy for three Consecutive times with an astounding victory over Liverpool. The match started out as expected with both sides testing each other at the opening stages but it was Liverpool who opened the scoring first through a wonderful curl in the edge of the area by striker Daniel Sturridge. After that goal the game almost looked far fetched for the Spanish side with Liverpool hitting them with everything they had. The English Premier League side also had three penalty claims denied by the referee and ended the first half of the game leading Sevilla by 1-0.

Sevilla, obviously outplayed in the first half of the game came back impressively in the second half and restored parity with just seconds into the game with a goal from Kevin Gameiro. The game continued balanced until Sevilla took control and a fine team play ended up with Coke driving a curling effort far into the Liverpool. Liverpool looked to come back into the game but with just 20 minutes left to play, Coke guided another ball past the goalkeeper in the eighteen yard box. There were initial misconceptions that the Sevilla player was in an offside position but replays showed that although in an offside position he got the ball from a back pass from one of the red’s defenders. At this point, Liverpool’s chances of a silverware and possible Champions League qualification were lost.

Jurgen Kloop’s men put up a good fight for the trophy, but Sevilla proved to be the Champions of the night.

Liverpool are on course to winning their first title under new coach Jurgen Kloop. The reds have improved drastically since the German took over in August/September last year. The road to the final of the competition has not been an easy ride for the reds as they have eliminated notable teams such as Manchester United, Borrusia Dortmund and Villareal. Since taking over the reds last year, Jurgen Kloop has gone on to rebuild the confidence of the fans in the team. Liverpool has now grown to become a threat like it use to be in the last decade, a resilient team at that. That characteristics was on display in their second match against favorites Borrusia Dortmund as they came from two goals down to end the match with a 4-3 victory and 5-4 victory on aggregate thereby eliminating the German side from the competition. It can be said that the players and the coach (the club) has done well for themselves by reaching the finals of the competition.

On the other side of the pitch is Sevilla who have won the competition three times in the last five years and would be looking to win in for three consecutive seasons with a win over Liverpool.
