|Sevilla FC Europa League 2011 elimination|
The bad news for Spanish Football was the elimination of SEVILLA FC which drew at home 1 - 1 to German Club HANNOVER which came into this match with a 2 - 1 1ºst leg advantage, thus Hannover winning & going through 2 -3 on aggregate.
Fierce stuff at Sevilla as Hannover put a shock into the local team with a 24th min goal from ABDELLAOUE for the Germans. From here it was all desperate play & unlucky missed chances - including posts - for the Spaniards. Sevilla FC managed the draw in the 37th min when German POGATETZ put in an own goal.
From here it was a nail bitter with chances to both sides with Sevilla growing with frustration as they saw time pass & their qualifying chances diminish. The frustration was so high that at the end Sevilla player MEDAL was sent off with a Red Card in the 90th min. End result, eliminated.
