Europa League kings Youssef En Nesyri struck twice as Sevilla cruised to a 3-0 victory against Manchester United on Thursday to go to the semifinals of their most important competition. This victory ensured that Sevilla would prevail over Manchester United on an aggregate score of 5-2.
David de Gea, the custodian for Manchester United, made two errors while attempting to play the soccer ball with his feet, which led to both of En Nesyri’s goals. Overall, the performance of the English team was listless and riddled with errors.
United, who controlled the first leg 2-0 until losing a pair of late strikes at Old Trafford, rarely threatened with getting again in the game in the midst of the rowdy environment at a fully booked Sanchez Pizjuan stadium.
Sevilla was persistent with their intense pressing, and United never threatened to make comeback into the game.
According to what En Nesyri said with Movistar Plus, “I have never experienced a setting like this throughout my entire life.”
I am overjoyed that we scored two goals and that our fans stayed behind to cheer us on to the very end.
It is imperative that all of us, including the supporters, remain united in order to achieve our goals.
Sevilla, who had been floundering in the lower half of the La Liga standings and had gone through a challenging season in which they had already sacked two managers, regained their fighting spirit at Old Trafford and grabbed a late 2-2 draw.
It required Sevilla just eight minutes to get on the scoreboard. De Gea sent a poor pass to Harry Maguire, who was then tackled by Erik Lamela. En Nesyri picked up the loose ball and scored from close range.
Just before halftime, Sevilla squandered a number of scoring opportunities, and a goal scored by Lucas Ocampos was overturned by the video assistant referee owing to offside play in the buildup.
Luke and Marcus Rashford Shaw were brought on by United manager Erik ten Hag as halftime substitutes; however, immediately after the break, defender of Sevilla Loic Bade struck with a spectacular header from the corner that deflected in off the crossbar.
En Nesyri sealed the victory for Real Madrid with a goal in the 80th minute following the goalkeeper of United David De Gea was unable to cope with a long ball played over the top. The Morocco attacker finished the game strong to bring Real Madrid one step closer to setting a new record for consecutive wins.
En Nesyri scored the game-winning goal in the 80th minute following the goalkeeper of United David De Gea’s failure to contain him with a long pass over the top. The striker of Morocco finished the game strong to move the Spanish team closer to breaking the record for most wins in a single competition with seven.
According to what Ten Hag said to BT Sport, the expectation is that we should perform better.
We lacked composure and were not calm at all. We were not able to beat the press because if you succeed there will be so many spots open for you to fill, and it was immediately evident how to do so.
We were unsuccessful in our military endeavors because our opponents possessed a higher level of zeal, desire, and willingness. We blew a fantastic chance, a fantastic moment, to win something, and we are the ones who are to blame because we are the ones who gave it away. It’s too late; we can’t get it back.
In the semifinals, Sevilla will face off against Juventus.
On Sunday, United will compete against Brighton & Hove Albion in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
