Sevilla Thrash Porto

Sevilla thrashed FC Porto 4-1 in their second leg quarter-final clash at Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán to qualify for the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League.

The Spanish outfit advance as 4-2 aggregate winners, after losing the first leg 1-0 in Portugal.

Sevilla got off to the perfect start after the five minute mark, as Ivan Rakitic opened the scoring from the penalty spot after Carlos Bacca was brought down by Danilo.

Carlos Eduardo came close to leveling matters in the 16th minute as his strike from range flew inches wide of the left-hand post.

Vitolo doubled the home side's lead in the 26th minute with a composed finish from close range after being teed up by Bacca.

Sevilla threatened again three minutes later and were rewarded as Bacca's right-footed finish from inside the area increased Sevilla's advantage.

Ricardo Quaresma looked to pull a goal back for Porto just before the halftime break but the winger's free-kick from 25-yards out flew just wide of target.

Quaresma looked to be Porto's best attacking outlet and he came close seven minutes after the restart as he tested Antonio Pimparel from distance.

Porto's Héctor Herrera almost grabbed goal a back just a minute later but the midfielder's powerful effort produced a fine save from Pimparel.

The hosts took their foot off the pedal for a large part of the second half until the the 79th minute, as Kevin Gameiro comfortably slotted home from close range for Sevilla's fourth on the night.

Quaresma was rewarded for his hard work deep into stoppage time as the Portuguese's long range strike found it's way into the back of the net.
