The sky is red and white above Budapest and not yellow-red as Jose Mourinho and his hoped. In an endless and cursed night for Roma - still an opposing goalkeeper dancing on the line and parrying, still a final lost on penalties - to celebrate is Sevilla that goes under in the first half thanks to a feat of Dybala, but resists, takes over the game and recovers in the second half by equalizing on an unfortunate own goal by Mancini. At 1-1 the two teams try until the end of the 90 minutes, but the decisive goal does not arrive and it goes to extra time. Even in overtime the game is not unlocked and after a match that seems endless (143 minutes with recoveries) we move on to the lottery of penalties that rewards the Spaniards. Mendilabar and his team took home the seventh seal by taking advantage of errors from the puck of Mancini and Ibanez. The Andalusian taboo of the finals never lost remains intact, that of the invincible Special One is broken.

Roma starts with Paulo Dybala from the beginning: after days of pretactics Mourinho reveals the card of the world champion on the field together and places both Spinazzola and Celik on the wings. Forward also Abraham assisted by captain Pellegrini. No surprises for Mendilabar's Sevilla that leaves the former Lamela on the bench. Ready to go and immediately great rhythm on the pitch especially by Roma that pushes and scares Sevilla in the 10th minute: Dybala sees the cut of Celik, ball behind for Spinazzola who kicks with first intention but with the right and Bonou can reject. After the first hectic minutes the game falls asleep a bit and becomes more fought in midfield. The first yellow card of the match arrives for an elbow by Matic to Ocampos. The Giallorossi seem more alive than ever, while Mendilibar's team is very waiting. And the fruits of Mourinho's men's forcing translated into the Giallorossi advantage shortly after the half hour: Mancini drew a filtering throw Dybala who flew into the penalty area in the penalty area and threaded Bounou with a razor to the left of the Moroccan goalkeeper.

Gone under the Spaniards suffer the blow and risk the double disadvantage thanks to the vein of Dubala and Pellegrini. In the minutes of recovery of the first half (seven those granted by the English referee Taylor) Roma slowed down leaving room for the first real offensive gusts of the Andalusians who almost equalized with the former Barcelona Rakitic who hit the post with a fireball thrown from distance. It is the sign that Sevilla is not there and wants to take back the game. The match starts again with Sevilla on the field with the former Roma Lamela and the former Milan Suso, and it is above all the second to affect to change the direction of the match: the Spaniards continue to push in search of the equalizer that arrives almost immediately thanks to an unfortunate own goal by Mancini: the ball put in the middle very tense and the Roman defender in an attempt to anticipate Ocampos clumsily deflects inside his own goal. On the 1-1 changes again the inertia of the race with the Giallorossi again looking for the goal, but Dybala and then Abraham come out first, and more than the maneuver it is the carattera to give some hope to Mourinho. The ball, that almost always remains between the feet of the Andalusians.

Ibanez goes close to us on the developments of a furious scrum. After a game of applause with twenty to go, Dybala comes out for Wijnaldum. Shortly afterwards Roma threatened to go under: the referee Taylor whistled a penalty for a foul by Ibanez in the area on Ocampos but the VAR exonerated the Brazilian defender. Then it was Roma's turn to claim a penalty for a hand foul in Fernando's area but Taylor did not go to review the action on video. After the fear of going back into disadvantage, the two teams try everything for everything: Belotti enters for Abraham and touches the 2-1, then the Spaniards try until the end but it goes to extra time. The first overtime flows smoothly, Mourinho plays the El Shaarawy card together with Llorente in defense in place of Spinazzola. A few minutes after the penalties Matic stops and Bove enters, Roma tries again with a crossbar caught a few seconds from the end but it remains on 1-1. It goes to the lottery of penalties where the errors of Mancini and Ibanez: there is also the thrill of the wrong penalty by Montiel, and repeated by the referee. It is destined to put the seal on Sevilla's success, both him, author of the decisive penalty at the World Cup for Argentina. And Dybala cries, consoled by everyone
