Sevilla stunned Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford on Tuesday to knock the Premier League side out of the UEFA Champions League and book a place in the quarter-finals.

Wissam Ben Yedder, who was left on the bench for the first leg in Spain, scored twice as a substitute in Manchester. The Red Devils couldn’t complete a comeback, despite Romelu Lukaku getting on the scoresheet.

Sevilla will be joined in the last eight by AS Roma, who progressed after beating Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 at the Stadio Olimpico. Edin Dzeko scored to help the Serie A outfit edge a tough tie on away goals.

Here are the final scores from Tuesday’s last-16 second legs:

  • AS Roma 1-0 Shakhtar Donetsk ( 2-2, Roma win on away goals)
  • Manchester United 1-2 Sevilla (Sevilla win 2-1 on aggregate)

      

Sevilla struggled early, as winger Luis Muriel once again found a conversion to centre-forward heavy going. The Colombian made way for Ben Yedder on 71 minutes, and it took the new arrival less than three minutes to put Sevilla ahead on aggregate.

He received a cross from Pablo Sarabia, created a yard of space against United centre-back Eric Bailly, before firing in a low shot. His second came three minutes later, when Ben Yedder saw his header just about cross the line, despite the best efforts of United goalkeeper David De Gea.

The brace means Ben Yedder trails only one man in the tournament’s scoring charts, per Squawka Football:
