Sevilla, the king of the Europa League lived on after they beat Inter Milan 3-2 in a thrilling final behind closed doors on Friday in Cologne, Germany to win the trophy for a record-extending sixth time.

Sevilla are now the most successful Europa League team. This shows how incredible Spanish teams are in European competitions.

It was a highly tensed match, with brilliant performances from both teams. Tow teams were  neck to neck in the first half, Lukaku won and converted penalty for Inter Milan and took the lead before De Jong doubles gave Sevilla and lead, Inter Milan showed they can do it by responding immediately, and the half time ended in a two all draw.

De Jong who scored against Manchester United also helped his side by scoring brace against Inter Milan and join the players that scored brace in the tournament, which includes the likes of Diego Forlan, Falcao and many more. No player in the history of Europa League as scored hat-trick.

Defender Diego Carlos, wearing a bandage on his leg, struck the decisive goal in the 74th minute with an overhead kick which took a huge deflection off Inter forward Romelu Lukaku.

There was added intrigue as Diego Carlos looked to have denied Lukaku a clear scoring chance when he fouled the Belgian in the fourth minute, with Lukaku dusting himself off to fire Inter into the lead while scoring his 34th goal of the season.

Sevilla soon equalised with a header through Luuk de Jong then the Dutchman struck again with a header to give his side the lead in the 33rd minute, only for Inter defender Diego Godin to also score a header moments later to make it 2-2. The match was played without any fans in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
