Sevilla scraped through to the final of the 2014 Europa League on Thursday, despite going down 3-1 to Valencia at the Mestalla on the night.

The Andalusians arrived in Valencia with a 2-0 lead from the first leg of the semi-final tie but quickly found their advantage erased by Los Che, who put together a blistering first half to level the tie at 2-2 heading into the break.

The home side then appeared to grab a decisive lead when Jeremy Mathieu headed home in the 69th minute to give Valencia a 3-2 lead, but with just seconds remaining, Stephane M'Bia found the back of the net to grab the crucial away goal for Unai Emery's men.

Sevilla will now head to Turin for the competition's final against Benfica, who held on to their 2-1 lead over Juventus with a 0-0 draw in northern Italy.

Here are six things we learned from Thursday's thrilling encounter.
