Liverpool Blow Europa League Final, Twitter Trolls Hard
Sevilla have won the Europa League for the third year running, after coming from behind to see off Liverpool in the final.
Jurgen Klopp’s side had gone ahead in the first half thanks to Daniel Sturridge’s goal, but Kevin Gameiro equalised at the beginning of a disastrous second half for the Reds.
Sevilla Captain Coke then scored twice to win the competition for the fifth time in the last ten years.
One place equally brilliant as Sevilla’s second half in Switzerland was Twitter, which was at the top of its game all night, just like the Spaniards.
Here’s the best of the reactions:
Before the game, there were some unsavoury scenes inside St Jakob-Park as fans came to blows – although some of it was hilarious:
Both teams had a more than decent record in the competition:
When the action began, Liverpool had a penalty shout for handball turned down, leading to Howard Webb taking some stick:
Co-commentator Owen Hargreaves didn’t get away with it though:
To be honest, it was all a bit boring until Sturridge lit up Switzerland with a stunner:
Liverpool were happy at the break, but disaster struck less than a minute after the restart:
And it nearly got worse, only for Kolo Toure to save the day:
But despite Kolo’s heroics, Coke scored a quickfire double to put Sevilla on the verge of victory:
Unai Emery’s side comfortably hung on to claim the trophy that’s basically theirs for keeps, and ensure it wasn’t a magical European night for Liverpool…
