Bizarre first half in Seville: four(!) penalties...

Karim Adeyemi personally decorated all three penalties for the visitors from Salzburg. The first was shot wide by the young German himself. His Croatian teammate Luka Susic took care of the second, and he opened the scoring in Sevilla.

After goalkeeper Bono had torpedoed Adeyemi, the Austrians were allowed to moor from eleven meters for the third time. Again Susic grabbed the ball, but this time saw his bet hit the post.

And the penalties were still not over before the halftime signal, because former Ajax player Maximilian Wöber assaulted Youssef En-Nesyri. And so Sevilla was also allowed to take a penalty in the person of Ivan Rakitic. The former Barcelona player drew the tie flawlessly, where Salzburg could have been ahead by 0-3. Four penalties in one half is a Champions League record, never seen before on Europe’s highest stage.

There was no change in the score after the break, although Sevilla played 35 minutes with one man less due to the second yellow card from En-Nesyri. The greatest chance of the Austrian victory came via Oumar Solet, but the French defender shot the ball wild and high in front of an empty goal.
