The game was really tough and it was impossible to predict the winner until the penalty kick performed by Gameiro!
The extra time was very intense but there weren't many chances after the first 10 minutes. Both sides were awfully tired and after a very exciting encounter, the game will be decided on the penalties!
Penalties - Benfica do first.
The very first penalty kick executed by Lima. He steps up and sends the keeper the wrong way before tucking the ball in the bottom left corner.
GOAL! Sevilla 0-1 Benfica (Lima, Benfica)
Bacca goes next. High and to the left.
GOAL! Sevilla 1-1 Benfica (Bacca, Sevilla )
Cardozo does the stuttered start up and his penalty to the left corner is weak and saved.
MISS! Sevilla 1-1 Benfica (Cardozo, Benfica)
Mbia performed very confident.

Rodrigo makes stuttered start up - he tries the right but his effort was saved by a goalkeeper.

Coke simply blasts it home
Goal! Sevilla 3-1 Benfica (Coke, Sevilla)
Luisão still keeps chances for Benfica.
