Two great matches tonight put in by the two Spanish representatives of the Europa League Q/Finals. Both Clubs had lost in their 1ºst leg games & needed to make comebacks to turn things around & get themselves into the semi-finals phase of the Europa League. Both Clubs managed brilliant performances & a bag of goals to eliminate their opponents. Below are the final results-scores & all the goalscorers.

Porto visited Sevilla FC with a 1 - 0 advantage from the 1º leg match & was "overrun" by the Spanish Football Club winning 4 - 1 & turning around the Q/Final tie to pass into the semi-final phase with a 4 - 2 aggregate.

Sevilla put in an almost perfect first 30 mins to score three goals & change the course of the tie to their advantage. The first was a goal to Rakitic in the 5th min after Bacca was fouled in the penalty area. The second came in the 26th min through Vitolo & the third with Bacca in the 29th min.

The second half saw Sevilla lose Coke to a red card which left his team down to 10 men. This lifted the hopes of Porto which lifted gear but only found the bar & a confident Sevilla goalkeeper. Against the grain Sevilla sealed it in the 78th min with a fourth scored from Gameiro.

Porto managed a consolation goal thanks to a "cracker" from Queresma in the 90th min. A true beauty of a goal. Final result 4 -1 & a magnificent match of European Football.

Similar situation at Valencia with an extraordinary comeback & turnaround of events by the Spanish Football Club. Basilea took a 3 - 0 goal advantage over to play Valencia CF & ended up losing 5 - 0 & with extra-time.

A top match that saw Paco Alcacer score a HAT-TRICK ( 38th, 70th & 113th min ) with another goal scored by Chilean Vargas in the 43th min. Valencia CF took the match into extra-time but Basilea saw two red cards ( Diaz 101st min & Sauro 105th min) that left them with 9 men, a situation that Valencia exploited to get two goals, the already mentioned Alcacer 113th min goal & a fifth from Bernat in the 118th min.

Great game & exhibition from Valencia which takes the Q/Final with a 5 - 3 aggregate & goes into the Europa League semi-finals. Great night for Spanish Soccer.
