The Serbian made no mistake to put it over rushing Bounou to take the lead. Sevilla didn’t take it long to equalize. Erik Lamela passes a ball to Suso well outside the box. The Spanish substitute scored a stunner of a goal giving Wojciech Szczesny no chance to save.

The player puts it hard and strong past the net, giving no choice for the Juventus keeper. The goal from Erik Lamela was enough to seal the win in the second leg of the Semi-final.
