Manchester United bowed out of the UEFA Champions League at the last-16 stage after a disappointing defeat against Sevilla on Tuesday night.

Following a goalless draw in Spain in the first leg three weeks ago, it was winner takes all at Old Trafford in the second leg.

The Reds came close to scoring in the first half when Marouane Fellaini was denied by Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico after linking up well with Alexis Sanchez.

But the Spanish visitors took control in the second period as substitute Wissam Ben Yedder, just 87 seconds after coming off the bench, curled a shot into the bottom corner to score the all-important first strike in the tie in the 74th minute.

Just four minutes later, the French forward scored a decisive second goal with a header which crept over the line, despite the best attempts of David De Gea to keep the ball out.

Romelu Lukaku gave United a glimmer of hope in the 84th minute when smashing home from Marcus Rashford’s corner for his sixth Champions League goal and his 24th in all competitions this season.

But the Reds still had too much to do, needing two more goals to progress, as Sevilla advanced to the quarter-finals of the competition.
