The perfect sandwich. Sevilla opened, the home side reacted and went into the break ahead, held on until the last ten minutes, then the visitors came back with a penalty.Seville had slightly more of the ball (53% to 47%) but the home team had more shots (13 to 9), both with 4 on target. Shakhtar had 4 shots saved, Sevilla had 3.

 

Villarreal 1 Liverpool FC 0

Adrián López 90+2

The cruelest of results against Liverpool, as the timing of the goal shows. Liverpool had 13 shots (against 9) and saw 5 attempts blocked (against Villarreal's 2), although the home side saw a shot off the woodwork

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
