Slavia Prague 4-3 Sevilla (Agg. 6-5)

Slavia Prague shocked Sevilla to win 4-3 after extra-time and advance to the Europa League quarter finals, 6-5 on aggregate in a thrilling contest.

The Five-time Europa League winners Sevilla were knocked out by a last-minute Slavia Prague goal in extra time in a dramatic finish to their last-16 tie.

Slavia, who drew 2-2 in Spain, had led 1-0 and 2-1 on the night through Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui and then a Tomas Soucek penalty.

But Sevilla battled back both times, with a Wissam Ben Yedder penalty followed by a stunning Munir El Haddadi volley.

The La Liga side took the lead through Franco Vazquez – which also gave them the edge on away goals.

The Czech side, who last reached the quarters in 2000, needed two goals in the final 18 minutes to go through.

And they found them through Mick van Buren and then Ibrahim Traore in the 119th minute.

Simon Kjaer made a mess of clearing Traore’s shot on the line as the Czechs won 4-3, 6-5 on aggregate.
