Munir El Haddadi’s sweet half-volley put Sevilla in sight of the Europa League quarterfinals on Thursday after a narrow 1-0 victory over West Ham.
El Haddadi’s second-half strike at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan means Sevilla have a slim but deserved advantage ahead of the second leg at the London Stadium next week.

The win gives West Ham work to do but they remain in touch with the six-time champions and will now hope to turn the result around in front of their own fans in London.
“I’m gutted we couldn’t get something here tonight but all our heads are still up,” said West Ham captain Declan Rice.
