Thanks to none other than Luuk de Jong, Seville has a chance to reach the Champions League quarterfinals. During the evening of the Erling Braut Haaland show, the Dutchman took care of the 2-3 final stand just before.
De Jong, the hero of Seville last year in both the semi-final battle and the final of the Europa League, had entered the field after an hour as a substitute. Five minutes before, he promoted a free kick from Oscar Rodriguez, another understudy, to assist.
Erling Braut Haaland was, despite the late hit of the Orange-International, the man of the evening. The Norwegian superattacker of Borussia Dortmund scored twice in Spain and steered his season total in the Champions League to eight. In total, he has already scored eighteen times in the most important Europe Cup.
Suso opened the score for Seville in the seventh minute, but after that it was time for a show of the 20-year-old Haaland. In the 19th he allowed Mahmoud Dahoud to produce the equalizer. Then Haaland struck himself once.
On the indications of Jadon Sancho and Marco Reus respectively, he made sure that the return to the Ruhr area (on 9 March) for Seville had to become a not too difficult matter. Already Seville got some hope again because of the late goal of Luuk de Jong.
