Sevilla 3 - 1 Shakhtar

Goals: Gameiro(9', 47'), Eduardo(44'), Mariano(59').

Sevilla remain on course to make history, they can win a record third consecutive Europa League title after they beat Shakhtar Donetsk to set up a final against Liverpool.

After a 2-2 first-leg draw in Ukraine, the Spaniards took control when Kevin Gameiro raced clear to score early on.

Former Arsenal striker Eduardo equalised with a close-range finish just before half-time.

But Gameiro tapped in his second after the break and Mariano smashed in from 25 yards to send Sevilla through.

It is not just the trophy at stake when the two sides meet in Switzerland, with the winner guaranteed a place in the group stages of next season's Champions League.

And for Sevilla, there is also the opportunity to add to their own illustrious history in this competition.

Sevilla qualified into the Europa League final after a 5-3 aggregate win.
