UCL: PSV win Sevilla with dramatic comeback victory


PSV Eindhoven staged a remarkable comeback to defeat Sevilla 3-2 in the UEFA Champions League, leaving the Spanish side’s hopes of reaching the knockout stages hanging by a thread.

Despite leading by two goals and seemingly in control, Sevilla’s hopes were dashed in a dramatic finale as PSV scored twice in the final minutes of the match, including a stoppage-time winner from Ricardo Pepi.

Sevilla got off to a strong start as Sergio Ramos, making his 141st Champions League appearance, converted a close-range strike to open the scoring. Djibril Sow’s goal was disallowed for handball, but Youssef En-Nesyri doubled Sevilla’s lead early in the second half with a fine finish over goalkeeper Walter Benitez.

However, the momentum shifted dramatically when Sevilla winger Lucas Ocampos was sent off for two bookings in quick succession, handing PSV a lifeline.

PSV capitalized on their numerical advantage, with Ismael Saibari pulling a goal back with a spectacular volley before Nemanja Gudelj deflected a cross into his own net to equalize.

The Dutch side completed their comeback in stoppage time when Pepi headed home the winner from Vertessen’s cross, sending the PSV fans into ecstasy and leaving Sevilla stunned.

The result leaves PSV second in the group, a point behind leaders Arsenal, while Sevilla’s hopes of reaching the Europa League depend on Arsenal beating Lens and Sevilla winning their final group match.
