Liverpool was thrown in to shock as Sevilla managed to clinch the Europa league title for the third season in succession.

Daniel Sturridge’s magnificent strike with the outside of his left foot gave Jurgen Klopp’s side the lead before half-time.

But Sevilla was out to secure the Champison league slot (up for grabs for the winner of the Europa league), and made a remarkable comeback in the second half when Kevin Gameiro turned in Mariano Ferreira’s cross to put Sevilla level. Coke’s fine 64th-minute finish confirmed Sevilla’s superiority and he added a contentious third from close range, which was initially disallowed but was then given which cemented the Spanish sides victory (1-3)
