>> In terms of painting the town red, this was as far as it got. An estimated 8,000 Liverpool fans traveled to Switzerland's Basel without a ticket for the Europa League final, many believing they already had their hands on the trophy.>> I'd take 1-0 now.>> 3-1, 3-1.
>> Well, he got one thing right. There were indeed four goals, but Liverpool only got one. Daniel Sturridge's first half effort wiped out just 17 seconds after the interval. From then on, it was all severe. Two goals from Captain Coke, earning him the Man of the Match award.
It's the third year in a row the Spanish side has lifted the trophy, and fifth time in 11 seasons, making them the first side in 40 years to win three consecutive European competitions.>> Sevilla fans and the club love this competition, and we love it so much, we want it so much that we fund it, and we're very happy about that.
And it's our competition. And we are the champions once again.>> For Liverpool, it was hard to take their second final defeat of the season, Manager Jürgen Klopp's fifth in a row.>> There are more bigger problems in life, but in this moment, to be honest, it doesn't feel like this.
It's really hard.>> The Champions League now beckons for Sevilla, but for Liverpool, it's back to the drawing board. European Football on-hold for at least another year.
