GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!!! Valencia lead! They've turned this one around. It was Jeremy Mathieu who threw himself at the ball in the six-yard box to turn it home. 3-0.

Feghouli threatens, again. He's coming off the right, one-two with Piatti, but Sevilla can eventually clear for a corner-kick.

Yellow card for Juan Bernat who attempted to convince the referee to book his opponent.
52'
Wobbly defending from Sevilla. Beto comes running out of his goal - left in no man's land - but Carrico and Fazio both fail to clear.

Valencia starting the second half on top. Emery's face is the same colour as his elbow patches.

48'
Pablo Piatti volleys wide. Parejo's free-kick was cleared only as far as Piatti on the 18-yard-line. Goes wide ...
46'
Dani Parejo bends the ball over the bar from 25 yards.
21:04
Valencia players return to the field for the second half. The visitors are greeted by a hail of abuse from the stands.
45'
Handball penalised against Daniel Caricco and Valencia have a free-kick on the edge of the box.
45'
Valencia restart. 2-2 on agg.
45'
HT: Valencia 2-0 Sevilla
41'
Some slack passing at the back from Ricardo Costa forced Valencia into a dangerous situation. They're out of the hole now, however.
36'
For a second, I had got Joao Pereira's position mixed up. Just shows how much he is around the pitch winding people up. He's a stick-on for the first booking ...
35'
SAVE! Alves with a massive - and brave - stop to block Jose Reyes at the far-post. The flag stayed down, the little flick from Bacca was sweet.

FACT: @valenciacf's Juan Bernat has played 883 minutes of #UEL football since the groups, more than any other player left in the competition

32'
French defender Jeremy Mathieu rifles a left-foot shot wide. He's a solid player, versatile, too.
31'
Valencia could probably sneak another goal out of this half, at least. Sevilla looking slightly better in the last few minutes, but sounds like the Valencia fans are gathering their breath.

It's 2-0 at the Mestalla! No Europa League side has scored more goals (25) than Valencia this season. http://t.co/JSHbJhEKc6

Valencia: Have scored more headed goals (6) than any other team in the Europa League this season

27'
Sevilla pinging the ball around for the first time in the game. Jose Antonio Reyes lashes a cross right across the face of goal, but no takers. The Mestalla is rocking ...

An outstanding cross. On a plate for Jonas ...

Top class from Bernat. Been nice watching him grow this season.

25'
 
GOOOOOOOOAL! 2-0! We're level. Jonas' header is too much for Beto and the ball crawls over the line.
24'
Midway through the first-half: Valencia need another, at least, for extra time. However, one for Sevilla would leave the hosts needing three.
21'
Another attack from the hosts. Bernat sliding the ball to the overlapping Mathieu who blasts into the side-netting.
18'
Beto SAVES! Feghouli dangerous again, the Algerian forces the birthday boy into a save.
17'
Valencia did more than just overturn the 0-3 deficit in the tie with Basel. They smashed them 5-0 in Spain after extra time.
14'
The Mestalla now in great voice. The reaction of the fans behind the goal was special. Full of emotion. Game on.

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Valencia are 1-0 up. Sofiane Feghouli jinks inside on to his left-foot and his shot smashes into the net with the aid of a deflection.
12'
Free-kick delivery from Vitolo causes a bit of confusion in the Valencia box. Keita looked as if he was fouled when the ball was in the air. Referee plays on, and Valencia clear.
9'
Pereira not getting forward as much. It leaves Valencia playing a fairly narrow system when Feghouli drifts inside.
6'
Eventually comes to nothing. The Valencia fans behind the goal are making a brilliant atmosphere, almost trying to suck the ball into the net.
6'
Joao Pereira's cross wins a corner kick for Valencia ....
5'
Ivan Rakitic combines with Carlos Bacca, the Croatian shoots well over from 25 yards.
5'
But a positive statistics however is that "Valencia have kept three clean sheets in their three #UEL games played at Mestalla in 2014." (via @optaJose)
3'
Normally, we'd use the term "nothing to lose" but for Valencia there's a huge amount to lose. One goal for Sevilla and they would need four goals on the night.
1'
Bright start. Some neat, one-touch passing around the box from Valencia's Sofiane Feghouli, Jonas takes the eventual shot and it is gathered by Beto.
0'
Carlos Bacca throws himself to the turf after 10 seconds. Time wasting already?
0'
Sevilla, with a 2-0 lead, kick off.

"¡Sí se puede!", "Yes we can!" chant the Valencia fans.

20:03
 
Jonas and Joao Pereira are one caution away from a suspension tonight. For Sevilla, Carlos Bacca and Coke run the risk of missing the final.
20:02
Key player for Valencia.

Parejo starting vs Sevilla. Highly influential, incisive passing & disciplined. Could fill Alcácer's part.

20:01
The teams are on their way out. We're all set for a thrilling second leg ...

Sevilla officially had 2,500 tickets, but Sevilla president agrees there are around 6,000 visiting fans in the ground.

19:37
Valencia can take heart from the fact that they've already recovered from a three-goal deficit to beat FC Basel. "We have already achieved it against Basel and we can do it once more against Sevilla," Jonas noted.

3- Sevilla have won 3 of their 4 games with fewer possession than their rivals in #UEL this season, including the 1st leg vs Valencia. Order

19:30
Valencia fans lined the streets around the Mestalla for the arrival of the team buses. Quite incredible scenes. Expecting a loud atmosphere as they look to inspire their team to comeback.
19:28
