Champions League last-16 first-leg ties

Sevilla 0-0 Manchester United

Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1 AS Roma


That is all we have time for tonight, thanks for following along. IBTimes UK will be back tomorrow evening to bring you live coverage of the second leg of Arsenal's Europa League last-32 tie against Swedish minnows Ostersunds FK.

The Gunners hold a commanding 3-0 advantage in that one.



Shahktar Donetsk 2-1 AS Roma

Second-half strikes from Ferreyra and Fred cancel out Under's opener and give Ukrainian champions Shakhtar a lead to protect in Rome next month.



Sevilla 0-0 Manchester United

Job half-done as far as limited United are concerned. Mourinho's cautious tactics pay off in a poor contest as they keep a clean sheet away from home.

Sevilla's profligacy meant that the visitors were mostly untroubled, aside from a great double save produced by De Gea at the end of the first half.

The Red Devils will be big favourites to take care of business at Old Trafford on 13 March.


Two minutes of added time signalled by the fourth official.


Rashford wins a free-kick off Lenglet and dusts himself down before firing wide from some distance.

Pizarro replaces Banega.


A late flurry of action at both ends.

Sandro is denied a first Sevilla goal by a block from Smalling and Navas appeals in vain for a penalty after going down theatrically over Pogba's outstretched leg. That looked like a clear dive at first glance.

Rashford then shoots wide.


Sevilla's first substitution of the night comes with just six minutes left on the clock.

Montella initially looks to replace Vazquez with Everton loanee Sandro before appearing to change his mind and hauling off the profligate Muriel in a straight swap up top.


Lukaku fires through the legs of Rico but the goal will not stand as he clearly controlled the ball with his arm.


Mourinho's final change sees Martial replace Mata.

Muriel's well-hit shot from a difficult angle is easy enough for De Gea to handle.

Less than 10 minutes plus stoppage time remaining in Andalusia.


Manchester City target Fred beats Alisson with a superb free-kick after fellow Brazilian Marlos is fouled by Kevin Strootman.

Shakhtar have come from behind to lead Roma.


Goal: Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1 AS Roma (Fred)


Correa plays a neat one-two with Vazquez and is rightly flagged for offside as he bends an effort wide of the far post.

Sanchez is the man to make way for Rashford. I think we might see Martial sooner rather than later also.


Sarabia heads Muriel's cross over the bar at the back post. Sevilla have been so wasteful tonight.

Rashford preparing to come on for United.


Pogba fires well wide for United before Muriel is unable to apply the finishing touch to an inviting low ball played across the six-yard box.


Former Newcastle loanee Ferreyra's 12th goal in his last 13 appearances has Shakhtar level in Ukraine.


Goal: Shakhtar Donetsk 1-1 AS Roma (Facundo Ferreyra)


Banega floats a free-kick straight into the grateful arms of De Gea from an excellent position after Mata brings down Escudero.

United's latest corner comes to nothing as Smalling is whistled for climbing on N'Zonzi.


Two more Sevilla chances go begging as Lenglet's header from a free-kick is held by De Gea and the lively Correa ends a jinking run by firing into the stands.


Sevilla are furious after the referee refuses to blow the whistle for a block on Vazquez by McTominay.

Muriel wipes out Sanchez and Lukaku fires the free-kick straight into the wall from a long way out.

Still goalless as we enter the final 30 minutes at the Ramon Sanchez-Pijuan.


Muriel is certainly adopting a shoot-on-sight policy this evening, but he rarely seems to lift his eyes off the deck.

The Colombian's latest strike is left to drift harmlessly wide of the post by De Gea.


Lindelof cynically tugs at Vazquez's shirt right in front of the referee and somehow manages to avoid a caution.

Strong defensive play from young McTominay to win a free-kick off Escudero.


A robust tackle from Young leads to another Sevilla corner and a powerful strike from Vazquez is inadvertently blocked by his own teammate in Mercado.

The attack breaks down when Vazquez is penalised for a sliding challenge on Sanchez.


Another shot from Muriel deflects wide off Smalling for Sevilla's 11th corner of the match already.

Banega's latest delivery is easily gathered by De Gea.


Sanchez and Lindelof, distracted by Navas, get themselves in a muddle down the United left, allowing Vazquez to cut inside and curl a shot wide of the far post.
