Federico Gatti scored a 97th-minute equaliser to earn Juventus a draw against Sevilla in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final.


Gatti headed in from two yards after Paul Pogba superbly kept the ball in as a Danilo header was set to drift wide.

It cancelled out Youssef En-Nesyri’s 26th-minute goal, with the striker stroking in Lucas Ocampos’ cross.

Sevilla dominated the game for large periods but were left to rue missed chances by En-Nesyri and Ocampos.

Juventus were lacklustre for most of the game, with Gatti’s header only their second effort on target in the game.

How a ‘desperation measure’ revived Sevilla
Reaction to Thursday’s European action
Sevilla, who knocked out Manchester United in the quarter-finals, have won the Europa League a record six times, most recently in 2020.

They had 13 shots including five on target, and arguably should have left Turin with a bigger advantage with En-Nesyri taking too long to shoot when through on goal moments after his opener.
