Sevilla win record 4th Europa League trophy

Colombian striker Carlos Bacca claimed a double as Sevilla made Europa League history by seeing off Dnipro to win the competition for a record fourth time.

The 28-year-old struck either half of time to secure a 3-2 victory at Warsaw's Narodowy Stadium and hand the Spaniards back-to-back triumphs in the competition in its current format and its previous incarnation as the UEFA Cup.



In the process, they went one better than Inter Milan, Juventus and Liverpool, with whom they had been level on three wins before kick-off.

The Dnipro keeper denied Bacca a hat-trick with a fine 79th-minute save, and the frontman left the pitch to warm applause three minutes later when he was replaced by Kevin Gameiro with his job done.

The Spanish side held on, although the game ended in worrying circumstances for Dnipro as midfielder Matheus left the field on a stretcher after appearing to collapse following a clash of heads.
