Sevilla win Europa League final on penalties

Sevilla''s defender Coke celebrates after scoring a penalty during the penalty shoot out during the UEFA Europa league final football match between Benfica and Sevilla on May 14, 2014 at the Juventus stadium in Turin.

Sevilla beat Benfica 4-2 on penalties after a goalless draw to win the Europa League final extending the Portuguese side's extraordinary run of defeats in European finals.

Kevin Gameiro fired home the winning penalty as Sevilla, twice winners of the old UEFA Cup, lifted the trophy for the third time and left Benfica to reflect on their eight successive loss in a European final.

Benfica had the better of the 90 minutes but the confidence seemed to drain out of them in extra-time.

Sevilla won the toss, took the penalties in front of their own fans and Benfica's Oscar Cardozo and Rodrigo had successive penalties saved by Beto to hand the Spanish side the trophy.

Argentine defenders Fedrico Fazio and Nicolás Pareja lined up for Sevilla, while Benfica fielded Ezequiel Garay and Nicolás Gaitán in their starting line-up.
