Van Wolfswinkel (Basel) scores!

A consolation for Basel and a memorable moment for the returning striker whose career was threatened by injury. Campo breaks down the right and sends a low centre across the face of goal, bobbling through to substitute Van Wolfswinkel, who converts from close range.

Full Time: Wolves 0-1 Sevilla

GOAL! Wolves 0-1 Sevilla (Ocampos 88′)

Heartbreak for Wolves!

Banega does not take the corner this time, but it is played back to him and he gets his delivery right.

That being said, Ocampos still has a lot to do but his glancing header gives Patricio no chance as he nets his 17th of the season.


Dodô (Shakhtar Donetsk) scores!

85min: Wolves 0-0 Sevilla

Wolves may have had the best chance of the evening but Lopetegui will be furious that his side have missed the headers they have created.

Their latest falls to En-Nesyri from a Banega corner, and he heads over after good pressure from Ruben Neves.

That is En-Nesyri’s final involvement, as he is replaced by Luuk de Jong, who has not scored in 10 games, while Franco Vazquez replaces Joan Jordan.

Shakhtar Donetsk 3-0 Basel

A third and decisive goal it looks like for the Ukrainian side, with Alan Patrick netting their third from the penalty spot.

71min: Wolves 0-0 Sevilla

Twenty minutes to go in this one and we are no closer to finding out who will face Manchester United in the semi-finals.

Diego Carlos is receiving some treatment here, and he has done well since giving away the penalty.

Him and Kounde have given themselves a few yards to defend against Traore who has failed to recreate his run in the first half.

61min: Wolves 0-0 Sevilla

There may be no crowd in the stadium, but the tension is palpable as Dendoncker does well to come back and stop Jordan from unleashing a shot from Fernando’s cross.

Reguilon then has a wild effort from the resulting corner, as Sevilla aim to continue their momentum.

54min: Wolves 0-0 Sevilla

Wolves started the first half very well, but it is Sevilla who have imposed themselves at the start of this second period.

The Sevilla defence are now not allowing space for Jimenez and Traore, with Nuno having Diogo Jota on the bench.

53min:Fernando (Sevilla) is penalised for a foul on Rúben Neves (Wolves).

49min: Wolves 0-0 Sevilla

Yellow card

Saïss (Wolves) is cautioned by the referee.

Suso appears to have picked up exactly where he left off, helping the Spanish side break before Ocampos is surrounded, and then to deliver a flighted ball that Doherty has to head behind for the corner.

Second half resumes

46min: Wolves 0-0 Sevilla

It is the Spanish side who get us back underway in Duisburg, can they muster a better performance in this half?

In the other match, Taison scored Shakhtar’s second and they look well on their way to meeting Inter Milan in a few days’ time. They lead 2-0 at half time against Basel.

Match summary

  • Júnior Moraes scores 2nd-minute header
  • Taison doubles lead with fine team goal
  • Marcos Antônio also hits bar for Shakhtar
  • Nikolić denies Júnior Moraes and Marlos
  • Winners will face Inter in semi-finals

The referee blows for half-time.

That’s the end of an intriguing first half. Wolves started brightly and, of course, the best chance went their way but Jiménez fluffed his lines from the penalty spot, his weak kick allowing Bounou to save. But Sevilla improved and have had their own chances later in the half, the best of them El-Nesyri’s shot across the face of goal. Plenty more twists and turns to come.

A half of two halves. Wolves came sprinting out of the blocks, not least in the shape of Traoré whose remarkable run earned the early penalty spurned by Jiménez. Since then, Sevilla have shaken themselves into gear and are largely in control of possession. It’s well poised.

Patricio is playing in his 108th European game tonight, and he is on hand here to keep out a powerful drive from Jordan.

A couple of minutes until the break here in what has been a tight affair.

37min: Wolves 0-0 Sevilla

Sevilla’s star man Lucas Ocampos has had a very quiet evening so far, but he gets into the game here with a nice curling effort.

It does not add to his tally of 14 LaLiga goals for the season, not having enough curl on it to beat Patricio
