Man Utd knocked out of Champions League

Latest news

    Ben Yedder has scored eight goals in the Champions League this season

    Manchester United were knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage after an awful performance ended in a 2-1 home defeat by Sevilla.

    Substitute Wissam Ben Yedder was the match-winner for the Spanish side, stroking in from inside the area just two minutes after coming on and heading in at the back post from a corner.

    After posing little threat in the 0-0 first-leg draw, United again looked second best against the La Liga side, though Marouane Fellaini’s thumping strike did draw Sergio Rico into a save and the away goalkeeper kept out Jesse Lingard’s low strike.

    Romelu Lukaku lashed home from close range with seven minutes remaining, but it proved to be merely a consolation.

    United exit the competition along with Tottenham, but Premier League leaders Manchester City and Liverpool progressed to Friday’s quarter-final draw. Chelsea can join them if they beat Barcelona on Wednesday.

    More to follow.
