Yevheniy Konoplyanka then put Europa League winners Sevilla in the lead from the penalty spot on 72 minutes.

Just as Sevilla looked to have done enough to win the trophy for a first time since 2006, Sergio Ramos forced extra time heading home a 93rd minute equalizer.

A penalty shoot out also looked on the cards but Carvajal’s stunning late effort sealed the win for the Champions League holders.
