Goalkeeper Andres Palop was the hero as Sevilla became only the second team to win back-to-back UEAF Cup trophies.

Palop saved three penalties in the shootout to give Sevilla a 3-1 victory over Spanish rival Espanyol in a shootout after their game ended in a 2-2 tie at Glasgow's Hampden Park on Wednesday. Palop, whose headed goal against Shakhtar Donetsk in the round of 16 had kept Sevilla in the competition, saved shots by Luis Garcia, Jonatasand Marc Torrejon.

Real Madrid is the only other team to win successive UEFA Cup triumphs, achieving that feat in 1985 and 1986.

UEFA CUP FINAL:
May 16 in Glasgow
Sevilla (Spain) 2 (Correia 19, Kanoute 105) Espanyol (Spain) 2 (Riera 28, Jonatas 116).
(Sevilla wins 3-1 on penalties.)
