105th minute +1: Matic gives away an unnecessary corner. Sevilla's Rakitic, however, hits the cross far too long.
103rd minute: Sevilla dominates the action, but the Andalusians are no longer really compelling.
99th minute: The Romans make a more stable impression in defence in extra time. Coach José Mourinho probably made the right adjustments during the break.
95th minute: World Cup winner Montiel and ex-Hertha player Rekik come on for Sevilla captain Jesus Navas and Alex Telles.
93rd minute: The first cramps come. Alex Telles sits down on the ground after a long sprint and longs for his substitution.

FINAL WHISTLE: There is extra time in Budapest. The Europa League final between Sevilla FC and AS Roma is 1-1 after regular time. In the next 30 minutes or a penalty shootout, the decision must now be made as to who will succeed Eintracht Frankfurt.
90th minute +6: Suso tries from distance. Rui Patricio can only bounce off the sharp shot. That was tight.
90th minute +5: Sevilla are clearly better in the second half, but more than the equalizer has not been possible so far. Is there anything left to do before the possible extension?
90th minute +2: Suso breaks through on the right with a double pass and brings the cross. But Nesyri can't quite get over the ball with his head again.
90th minute: There are six minutes of extra time. Will one of the teams still put the lucky punch?
89th minute: There are now many indications of extra time. Sevilla, however, are still looking for a decision within the regular season.
86th minute: Ibanez throws his head into Suso's long-range shot. Both teams are fighting for their big dream.
83rd minute: Huge save by Bono, who holds against Belotti.
81st minute: Now the Romans call for penalties. But Fernando's arm is attached, but the arm twitches slightly to the side. No penalty.
80th minute: Sevilla stay on the ball and constrict Roma deep in their own half. Smalling has to resolutely clear two flanks.
Roma in luck: VAR concedes penalty kick
76th minute: Penalty, no penalty? Roma's Ibanez brings down Ocampos in the penalty area, but plays the ball quite easily. Referee Taylor immediately points to the point, but revises his decision after viewing the video images.
71st minute: Again, a dangerous Navas cross sails through the Roman penalty area. Sevilla are on the verge of turning the game around.
68th minute: Mourinho reacts and takes the scorer Paulo Dybala off the field. It gets more defensive, Georginio Wijnaldum comes into the game.
67th minute: Crazy scene in Sevilla's penalty area. After a Pellegrini free-kick, Bono reacts quickly to Abraham, after which a wild scramble ensues until the ball is cleared out of harm's way.
64th minute: Roma win the ball deep in the opponent's half, but Dybala gets out of step.
62nd minute: Roma get back on track. Dybala crosses into the penalty area after a blocked Pellegrini free-kick, where Smalling rises highest. But Sevilla keeper Bono easily intercepts the header.
59th minute: The Andalusians continue to press the accelerator pedal, one cross after the other rushes through the Roman penalty area. The Mourinho team now has to be extremely careful.
Equaliser shortly after the break: Sevilla celebrates thanks to own goal
55th minute: TOOOOOOOOR for Sevilla FC! 1:1. Own goal. Jesus Navas crosses sharply in front of goal, several players miss the ball until Mancini puts it in his own goal.
52nd minute: Sevilla come out of the break well. After a nice combination, Lamela serves Alex Telles, who shoots just over the goal.
50th minute: Ocampos and Sevilla claim handball after a cross, but after a short check it continues.
46th minute: The second half is underway. Sevilla make two substitutions, replacing Bryan Gil and Oliver Torres with Suso and Lamela.
HALF TIME: Roma deservedly lead 1-0 against Sevilla FC at half-time thanks to Paulo Dybala's goal. Shortly before the change of sides, however, the Mourinho team is lucky when the ex-Schalke Ivan Rakitic only hits the post. Both teams don't give each other anything, especially at the beginning there were a lot of hard fouls.
Sevilla miss equaliser: Rakitic hits the post
45th minute +6: Sevilla unlucky, Roma lucky! Rakitic takes a cross pass directly and nails the leather to the inside post. Rome's goalkeeper Rui Patricio is lucky that the ball doesn't bounce off his back.
45th minute +4: Sevilla are pushing for an equaliser before the break, but Roma are solid in defence.
44th minute: Pellegrini sees yellow for a brazen swallow. The Italian tunnels Rakitik and then just lets himself fall, referee Anthony Taylor doesn't fall for it.
43rd minute: Best chance for Sevilla. En-Nesyri is unable to push Rakitic's corner and strikes across the box.
40th minute: Roma play with the lead behind them and whipped up by the numerous Tifosi who have travelled with them. Sevilla have an away match here.
First goal in Budapest: Dybala puts Roma ahead
35th minute: TOOOOOOOR for AS Roma. The Romans win the ball in the opponent's half and Mancini sends straight Dybala steeply. The Argentinian doesn't hesitate for long and slides in to take the lead. José Mourinho has once again proven his golden touch, as Dybala was last in the starting line-up at the beginning of April due to injury. However, Mourinho did not want to do without the world champion today.
32nd minute: Abraham lies on the ground in the penalty area and holds his head. The VAR checks the scene for a potential penalty. Earlier, Gudelj had first played the ball against the Roma striker. No penalty.
30th minute: There is hardly any flow in the game due to the many interruptions. Roma had the only scoring chance of the game through Spinazzola.
25th minute: There was another crash. Smalling pushes En-Nesyri into his colleague Ibanez, who is hit in the head. A brutal finale so far.
22nd minute: Now Ocampos is holding his head after getting his elbow rammed into the neck by Rome's Matic. The Serb rightly sees the yellow cardboard.
17th minute: Telles and Celik also bang their heads against each other in an aerial duel. The Roma Turkish right-back also needs treatment, but is free to continue playing.
12th minute: The first big chance in this final – for Roma. After a great lateral shift to the right side, Dybala puts through for Celik. Spinazzola takes it directly, but fails because of Bono.
6th minute: Abraham tries artistically with his heel on the left side of the penalty area, but Dybala can't get to the high pass. The game is fiercely contested at the beginning, with both teams leaving little room to breathe in the build-up.
2nd minute: Right at the beginning it rattles. Roma defender Ibanez and Sevilla's Gudelj crash their heads together during a corner kick. Gudelj needs to be treated briefly.

The 37-year-old captain Jesus Navas plays at right-back. In midfield, ex-Schalke player Ivan Rakitic pulls the strings. In attack, hopes rest mainly on Argentinian Lucas Ocampos and striker Youssef En-Nesyri. Former Bayern player Tanguy Nianzou, who made 2020 competitive appearances for Bayern between 2022 and 28, is initially on the bench after recovering from injury.
At AS Roma, superstar coach José Mourinho relies on a defensive three-man chain. In attack, the Portuguese relies on his captain Lorenzo Pellegrini, dribbling artist Paulo Dybala and striker Tammy Abraham.

Sevilla vs Roma in EL final: Winner qualifies for Champions League
"The DNA is motivation and joy, the desire for great moments. That's what I'm trying to convey to the boys," said the 60-year-old ahead of the showdown at Budapest's Puskas Arena. The DNA of the Portuguese in Rome? Destructive but successful defensive football. It wasn't just Bayer Leverkusen who felt the pain in the semi-finals (0-1, 0-0).
He is now "even better" as a coach due to his experience, his motivation is growing "every day," said the Roma star coach. He has been on the sidelines five times in a European final – and his team has won five times. "Better coach, better person, same DNA," Mourinho said ahead of the Europa League final against Sevilla on Wednesday (21 p.m., RTL) – in which he wants to further extend his flawless final record.
Europa League final: Sevilla vs Roma today in the live ticker – opponent "gets scared" of Mourinho
But there is a real chunk waiting for the Romans - because Sevilla FC is also very familiar with finals. The Andalusians have reached the final of Europe's second most important club competition six times and lifted the trophy six times – a record. However, coach Jose Luis Mendilibar has been warned against the insatiable tactician Mourinho.
"He's one of the greats. When you look at where he's been and what he's won, you get scared," said the 62-year-old, who wants to finish a mixed season with his team successfully. In the Spanish league, Sevilla is only in eleventh place, but in their favorite competition, the Andalusians eliminated the European heavyweights Manchester United and Juventus. "To win this trophy, after this year, would be something wonderful and unique, it would be one of the best days of my life," said attacker Oliver Torres.
Mourinho wants to overtake ex-Bayern coach: Roma coach ahead of record title
The only thing standing in the way is the in-form Roma (only one win from the last nine games) and record chaser Mourinho. Should the Portuguese triumph with the Romans, he would become the sole record holder among coaches with six international titles. "We don't need to talk about competence – it's enough to look at his successes," World Cup winner Paulo Dybala said of his coach in an interview with kicker.
So far, Mourinho shares the record with ex-Bayern coach Giovanni Trapattoni, who has also won five European titles. Just last year, Mourinho won the first edition of the Conference League with the Giallorossi – now "The Special One" wants to strike one floor higher.
