Uefa Cup/Europa League kings Sevilla have won the tournament while making a record for sixth time. The game started when Sevilla defender Diego Carlos fouled Romelu Lukaku for an Inter penalty. This interesting part ended when Lukaku deflected Carlos’ kicked into his own net.
With these updates, it is Inter Milan’s into 10th year at least that they will have to wait for a trophy. Inter were in level when Diego Godin nodded in to make it 2-2 in the 35th minute.
At this stage, the game could not continue with a boost, but with extra-time on the cards, there was yet a twist to come.
Carlos hovered into the air to catch a high ball with an overhead kick which was going wide until Lukaku stuck out a leg and diverted it past his own goalkeeper.
It was a first trophy in the managerial career of Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui, whose side are unbeaten since February, a run of 21 games.

Sevilla’s excellent record of never losing a Uefa Cup or Europa League final continues – six finals, six victories. But this was a new Sevilla team with anybody left since their three wins in a row from 2014 to 2016.

About Uefa Cup/Europa League finals
The UEFA Europa League, formerly the UEFA Cup, is an association football competition established in 1971 by UEFA. It is considered the second most important international competition for European clubs, after the UEFA Champions League.
Clubs qualify for the Europa League based on their performance in national leagues and cup competitions. For the first 25 years of the competition, the final was contested over two legs, one at each participating club’s stadium, but in 1998, Inter Milan defeated Lazio in the competition’s first single-legged final held at a neutral venue, the Parc des Princes in Paris.
Sevilla holds the record for the most victories, having won the competition six times since its inception. Real Madrid and Sevilla are the only teams to have retained their title.
