    FT:  AS Roma 1-0 Shakhtar Donetsk (Agg 2-2, Roma go through on away goals rule)

    Edin Dzeko's strike is the difference as Roma edge past Shakhtar. The Ukranians gave it their all in the first half, but a red card in the second half killed their chances. In the end, Roma's class prevailed. They go into the quarter-finals

  • 03:08 (IST)

    FT: Manchester United 1-2 Sevilla (Sevilla win 2-1 on aggregate)

    Manchester United are out of the Champions League. Sevilla were the better team in the first leg and after 70 minutes of closely-fought encounter Sevilla stepped it up a level with the introduction of Ben Yedder. United pulled one back late on through Lukaku but it was nothing more than a consolation.

    Sevilla celebrate at Old Trafford as they reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time in their history.

    Correction. It's 4 minutes of added time

  • 03:03 (IST)

    90' Manchester United 1-2 Sevilla (Agg: 1-2)

    3 minutes added on at Old Trafford. United need 2 goals to stay alive in this season's Champions League

  • 03:01 (IST)

    90' AS Roma 1-0 Shakhtar Donetsk (Agg 2-2, Roma lead on away goals)

    Roma holding on, but Shakhtar are down to ten men after a red card in the second half. As things stand, they will go through on away goals rule

  • 02:56 (IST)

    84' Manchester United 1-2 Sevilla (Agg: 1-2)

    GOAL! Romelu Lukaku scores with a fine finish to give United hope. Can United mount a miraculous comeback?

  • 02:51 (IST)

    78' Manchester United 0-2 Sevilla (Agg: 0-2)

    GOAL! Ben Yedder again. He bundles in a header from close range. United all over the place with their marking. They now need 3 goals in 12 minutes. Huge ask now

  • 02:49 (IST)

    74' Manchester United 0-1 Sevilla (Agg: 0-1)

    GOAL! What an introduction! Ben Yedder scores to put Sevilla ahead. United now need 2 goals in 16 minutes to qualify

  • 02:45 (IST)

    70' Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

    Pogba tries his luck from distance and is pretty close, but this game requires more. Sevilla bring on their top scorer Ben Yedder in place of Muriel. With just 20 minutes to play a Sevilla goal could put United in a lot of trouble

  • 02:40 (IST)

    65' Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

    It's not happening for either sides at the moment. Sevilla are attacking with little thrust on the break. United are sloppy in play and wayward in their shooting. This game needs an a moment of magic

  • 02:36 (IST)

    60' AS Roma 1-0 Shakhtar Donetsk (Agg 2-2, Roma lead on away goals)

    The goal has boosted Roma and there is a spring in the step of their players. Shakhtar have had to come out and attack, thus leaving space for the likes of Dzeko to exploit.30 minutes for Shakhtar to find the goal that will put them back in the driver's seat

  • 02:33 (IST)

    60' Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

    Mourinho send in Paul Pogba for Fellaini who had a disappointing outing. Pogba will give United more impetus in attack and that's hat they may need to break the deadlock.

  • 02:29 (IST)

    55' Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

    Better from United. Lingard forces a save from Rico before Rashford twists and turns to send a cross across the face of the goal only for it to go unattended. Sevilla are forced back a bit.

  • 02:27 (IST)

    52' AS Roma 1-0 Shakhtar Donetsk (Agg 2-2, Roma lead on away goals)

    GOAL! Edin Dzeko puts Roma ahead as he toepokes the ball past Shakhtar goalkeeper who was way too off his line. Roma have the advantage now. Shakhtar must score to stay alive

  • 02:21 (IST)

    Fine break from Sevilla, but no end product. This can be kept on loop 

  • 02:21 (IST)

    Fine break from Sevilla, but no end product. This can be kept on loop 

  • 02:17 (IST)

    Second half underway in Rome and Manchester

  • 02:12 (IST)

    United have plenty of scope for improvement! 

  • 02:07 (IST)

    HT: AS Roma 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk (Agg: 1-2)

    Goalless at the Stadio Olimpico where it's been a fairly even contest. Roma have got back into the game after an early surge from the visitors but they are yet to find the all-important goal they need to achieve parity in the tie. Shakhtar have looked dangerous on the break.

  • 02:03 (IST)

    HT: Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

    A very dull half comes to an end with the referee not adding any time after the 45 minutes. Sevilla have done well to keep United to few chances, but they have been extremely disappointing in the final third. United look the likelier of the two sides to score, but there's alot of work to be done for United if they are to progress to the quarter-final

  • 01:57 (IST)

    40' Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

    Both teams in search of that moment that would spring them to life. Fellaini with a decent chance can only fire it at Rico. Sevilla struggling to get into areas from where they can hurt United. The hosts have been better in the last few minutes

  • 01:55 (IST)

    A rare opportunity for Manchester United in this first half

  • 01:52 (IST)

    35' Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

    Dull game so far. Sevilla continue to disappoint with their finishing after doing well to get to United's penalty area. Their wastefulness could cost them as United at some point are certain to carve out few opportunities. 

  • 01:48 (IST)

    30' AS Roma 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk (Agg: 1-2)

    Roma have got into the game more and are seeing a lot more of the ball, but the Ukranians are holding firm and carrying a threat on the break. Not going all Roma's way at the Stadio Olimpico where Shakhtar are proving to be more than handy opponents

  • 01:47 (IST)

    30' Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

    Sloppy play from both sides. Giving the ball away too cheaply. Muriel went close for Sevilla after a good break, but the final shot was just wide. Lukaku was played in by a wonderful lofted pass from Rashford but the Belgian failed to control as it came over the defender's head. It's not been a great game so far, both teams would need improvements

  • 01:41 (IST)

    25' Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

    United with a bit more possession in the last five minutes, showing a bit more intent. However, there's no real zip to their play. A few whistles going at Old Trafford which is a slightly frustrated place at the moment.

  • 01:38 (IST)

    20' Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

    The early zest in United's play has disappeared and Sevilla are enjoying more possession. However, no chances to report at either ends. Both teams lacking incisiveness in their own penalty area. There's an anxiousness around Old Trafford after their team haven't made a flying start to this encounter

  • 01:34 (IST)

    15' AS Roma 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk (Agg: 1-2)

    In Rome, Shakhtar have been the better side and haven't come there to sit back and defend. They are taking the game to Roma who haven't going going at the Stadio Olimpico. The Italians have a deficit to make up.

  • 01:32 (IST)

    15' Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

    Sevilla have found a bit of rhythm and United are forced back. Eric Bailly misplaces a pass that leads to a chance for Sevilla but their finishing which has let them down so far this season is not up to the mark. They can't afford to waste chances tonght.

  • 01:27 (IST)

    10' Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

    Correa goes close for Sevilla with a header from a corner that United don't deal with particularly well. But the header goes just over the crossbar.

  • 01:22 (IST)

    5' Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

    Quiet start from both sides, although Manchester United have shown plenty of attacking intent. A few openings have fallen to Jose Mourinho's side but Sevilla's goalkeeper hasn't been worked yet. This is a very different approach from United as compared to the first leg

15' Manchester United 0-0 Sevilla (Agg: 0-0)

Sevilla have found a bit of rhythm and United are forced back. Eric Bailly misplaces a pass that leads to a chance for Sevilla but their finishing which has let them down so far this season is not up to the mark. They can't afford to waste chances tonght.

Preview: English football giants Manchester United on Monday held their training session without midfielders Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera and defenders Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind on the eve of the Champions League game against Sevilla.

Man United is set to host Sevilla on Tuesday at Old Trafford stadium in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16, after the first leg ended with a goalless draw, reports Efe.

None of the five players were present in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Liverpool in the English Premier League (EPL), so their presence in the second leg clash appeared to be in doubt.

The two midfielders Angel Gomes and Ethan Hamilton were also not included in the training session.

Forwards Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial returned to the group workout, having recovered from their injuries.

Ibrahimovic, 36, has not appeared with his side since December 26 after returning from a knee injury that kept him out for months.

Martial exercised normally with his teammates after having missed Manchester United's last two wins against Liverpool and Crystal Palace.

Manchester United is now second in the EPL standings, while Sevilla holds the fifth position in the La Liga table.

Over 2,000 Sevilla fans fill Old Trafford with dreams of qualifying

The stands of Old Trafford stadium on Tuesday were abuzz with around 2,200 Sevilla fans, fervently hoping for an away win in the second leg game against English football giants Manchester United in the Champions League round-of-16.

A Sevilla victory would mean qualifying for the quarterfinals for the first time in six decades, and the historic chance has drawn the largest crowd of Sevilla fans so far to attend an away match in the Champions League knockout stage, reports Efe.

Emotions were running high after the first leg ended in a goalless draw, with a mixture of both fear and hope despite facing one of the toughest teams in European soccer.

The official Sevilla expedition arrived in Manchester on Monday with the first group of 100 fans, who have steadily increasing with the arrival of more groups.

The Andalusian supporters are looking forward to the clash with Man United, pushing aside the memory of three recent unsuccessful attempts to reach the Champions League quarterfinals.

The last time Sevilla played in the quartersfinals of the European tournament was in the 1957-58 season, after defeating Danish side AGF Aarhus in the round of 16.
