Gonzalo Montiel journey over this season
Gonzalo Montiel, the one who converted the winning penalty shootout for the Argentina in the world cup final, scored the deciding kick.
The Europa League specialists condemned Roma manager Jose Mourinho to his first European final loss, having triumphed on five such occasions previously.
“I have to fight for these lads and therefore not say objectively that I will remain,”I lost this one, but I return home prouder than ever this time.”
A furiously contested encounter, where more yellow cards were issued to coaching and technical staff in respective dugouts than players, went to extra-time after Gianluca Mancini’s own goal cancelled out Paulo Dybala’s well-taken opener, before Sevilla prevailed in the shootout. After the Victory against Manchester United with 3-0 Sevilla beat Roma in the finals match making them champions for the seventh time.
Similar to Roma, but to a greater extent, Sevilla have endured an arduous domestic campaign, marred by relegation fears until recently, but continental competition tends to be their mecca.
The Andalucian club’s air of invincibility was under threat after Dybala collected Mancini’s defence-splitting pass, allowing the ball to roll across his body onto his favoured left boot and finding the far corner in one swift motion (35).
But, during a particularly argumentative tussle, Mancini’s own goal 10 minutes into the second half gifted Sevilla parity, and after a lifeless period of extra-time, Montiel settled the tie with the winning penalty – crucially, only after benefiting from a retake when goalkeeper Rui Patricio was adjudged to encroach on his first effort, which was saved.
Five months after scoring the winning penalty on the biggest stage of all, Montiel converted the clinching spot-kick, this time in a European final, to crown Sevilla champions at the expense of Mourinho’s Roma.
A hot-tempered affair was narrowly edged by the masters of Europe’s second-tier competition, who will journey home to Spain with an unbelievable seventh scalp.
Mourinho, whose Roma future is now in question, was on track to become the most decorated European manager in history with six trophies when Dybala overcame a problem ankle injury in time to give the Serie A side the lead.
But Mancini, who had provided the assist for Dybala, then turned awkwardly into his own net as a tempestuous tie finished 1-1 after 120 minutes.
“I don’t want silver medals. I don’t keep silver medals, so I gave it away,” the irritated Roma boss later told Movistar.
Both benches were visibly tetchy from the off, with English referee Anthony Taylor tasked with overseeing proceedings, helped in so small part by the magnitude of what was at stake – European glory, but also the chance to earn a spot on the billing of next season’s Champions League.
Jose Mourinho on post-match interview
“I have to fight for these lads and therefore not say objectively that I will remain. I spoke to the club in December when I had that approach from the Portuguese national team.”
“I have not had any contact with anyone else since then. I have a year left on my contract and this is the situation.
“We are dead tired, but proud. I always say you can lose a football match, but never your dignity or professionalism.
“I lost this one, but I return home prouder than ever this time. The lads gave absolutely everything this season.”
