How Manchester United Crashed out of Champions League

Manchester United have crashed out of the Champions League after a 2-1 defeat to Sevilla in their last-16 second leg at Old Trafford.

Second-half substitute Wissam Ben Yedder scored two time within 4 minutes to send Sevilla into the quarter-finals of the competition for the first time.

With only 6 minutes remaining, Romelu Lukaku managed to pull one back for the Red Devils.
