  • Sevilla are celebrating wildly after sealing Europa League glory with a 4-2 win on penalties after a goalless draw. There was nothing to choose between them after 120 minutes but the two penalties missed by Benfica were dreadful, characterised by the stuttering run-ups of Cardozo and Rodrigo, and it will be Sevilla who will lift the trophy in a few moments' time.

  • GOAL! Benfica 2 Sevilla 4. Gameiro smashes his penalty into the top corner to win the final for Sevilla.

  • GOAL! Benfica 2 Sevilla 3. Luisao calmly slots home to keep Benfica's hopes alive.

  • GOAL! Benfica 1 Sevilla 3. Coke fires Sevilla to the brink.

  • SAVE! Benfica 1 Sevilla 2. Rodrigo's tame effort is saved down to his left by Beto.

  • GOAL! Benfica 1 Sevilla 2. Mbia gives Sevilla the advantage.

  • SAVE! Benfica 1 Sevilla 1. Cardozo's hesitant penalty is tipped wide by Beto.

  • GOAL! Benfica 1 Sevilla 1. Bacca equalises with an emphatic penalty high into the net.

  • GOAL! Benfica 1 Sevilla 0. Lima steps up first for Benfica and sends the keeper the wrong way.

  • The final whistle goes and the Europa League final will be decided on penalties after a goalless draw in Turin.

  • Benfica's final change sees Gaitan replaced by Cavaleiro, who has a reputation as a proven penalty taker.

  • There has been no sign of the deadlock being broken in the last few minutes but Lima injects some pace into proceedings with a run down the left, but his cross is headed away.

  • The thoughts of the managers may well have turned to penalties, as the two benches can be seen in intense discussions.

  • A couple of players have been suffering with cramp and Bacca is the latest to go down after failing to chase down a long ball.

  • Oblak reaches up well inside the area to grasp hold of Rakitic's free-kick.

  • Sevilla make their final change of the night and it is Figueiras who comes on for Vitolo for the closing stages.

  • Gameiro goes for goal rather than trying to play in Bacca but only succeeds in hitting the side-netting from the corner of the area.

  • Gomes tries his luck from at least 30 yards out but slices his shot horribly high and wide.

  • Fatigue is definitely a factor now as passes go astray from both sides.

  • The second half of extra-time gets underway and it remains to be seen who will emerge as the hero, or villain, of the day.
