Sevilla Win The 2020 UEFA Europa League After Romelu Lukaku Blunder

Luuk de Jong of Sevilla scores his team's first goal during the UEFA Europa League Final between Seville and FC Internazionale at RheinEnergieStadion on August 21, 2020 in Cologne, Germany.

Sevilla have won the 2020 UEFA Europa League, beating Inter Milan. This marks Sevilla's sixth Europa League title and their fourth in the last seven season's.

In a UEFA Europa League final that will be remembered for the sheer amount of goals, Sevilla won 3-2 after a brace from Luuk De Jong and an insane own-goal from Romelu Lukaku.

The game started off fast with Lukaku being taken down in the Sevilla box by Diego Carlos. This was Carlos' third penalty given away in as many games in the Europa League.

Lukaku easily slotted the penalty to put Inter up 1-0 within five minutes.

However, the Spanish team came back fast and played incredibly aggressive, constantly pumping balls into the box for striker De Jong. The Dutch native finally found the end of the crosses, scoring twice within the first 35 minutes of the game.

The game continued with it's end-to-end play with Diego Godin netting Inter's second goal with a header off a Marcelo Brozovic's in-direct free-kick only two minutes after De Jong's second goal.

The second-half seemed to quiet down with the action dying down through the first 30 minutes.

However, on the 74th minute from another set-piece, Carlos tried a bicycle kick, and with Lukaku having the chance to clear the ball out of his area, his notorious first-touch bounced the ball into the back of his own-goal.

Sevilla seemed to sit back and let the game finish with Inter trying to bring the game back level. However, they were unable to get the equaliser with Sevilla going on to win their sixth Europa League title, and their fourth within seven years.
