Atletico settled all the issues in the first 30 minutes when they managed two goals that put everything uphill. Individual ( & collective ) actions brought on the scoring with the first goal in the 6th min by Diego Costa & his fancy ball control. The second was a worked piece by Falcao & Costa which ended in a goal for Falcao in the 30th min.

This put the semi-final tie nearly out of reach for Sevilla FC but Jesus Navas thought differently & began the attempted comeback. The winger scored a magnificent goal in the 39th min & his fighting spirit was contagious for the rest of his team-mates. Top game & best for his side tonight.

The second half was rough & fiercely fought as the home team felt that they could pull off a miracle. They created chances, plenty of opportunities but failed to convert them into goals (Negredo missed some sitters). Then Sevilla midfielder Medal was sent off & left Sevilla with 10 men this did not help their cause. The locals however did not drop their heads & their pride allowed them to equalize in the 91 st min via Rakitic. True grit.

With the nerves & the frustration Sevila FC player Kondogbia was sent off with an ugly action on Costa right at the end of the match.
