Sevilla opened the scoring with veteran defender Sergio Ramos scoring his first goal since returning to Sevilla in the 24th minute. It was the 10,000th in Champions League history.

Youssef En-Nesyri added to the lead in the 47th but PSV rallied after Sevilla forward Lucas Ocampos was sent off with a second yellow card in the 66th.

Ismael Saibari pulled the visitors closer two minutes later with a neat left-footed flick from inside the area off a cross by U.S. defender Sergiño Dest, and PSV equalized with an own-goal by Nemanja Gudelj in the 81st before Pepi got the winner with a header from near the penalty spot in stoppage time.

Sevilla midfielder Fernando was sent off in the final minutes.

“We had a favourable result after dominating the first half, but going a man down killed us and they took advantage of it,” Sevilla’s Ramos told Movistar Plus.
