Emirates Stadium, London, England
35′ Ben Yedder (P)
Thanks for joining us.
FT: The result means that Sevilla move to the top of the Emirates Cup table on four points ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Benfica, while Leipzig drop to the bottom of the table, without a point.
FT: The German side created some good chances and went close when Poulsen’s flick from an Augustin pull-back was smothered behind by substitute keeper Soria before a Klostermann volley from-range tested Soria.
FT: The Spaniards created some good chances and should have doubled their lead when substitute Correa was sent through on-goal after a poor back-pass from Ilsanker but with just Gulácsi to beat, the striker was denied by the Hungarian’s trailing leg. Substitute Sarabia then tested Gulácsi with a freekick before Montoya volleyed against the bar.
FT: So Sevilla defeat Leipzig to climb to the top of the Emirates Cup table ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Benfica.

HT: So will Sevilla hold onto their lead or will Leipzig come back in this match? Join us again for the second-half.
HT: Leipzig will need to be more clinical in front of goal if they are to come back in this match. They have wasted a number of good chances and won’t want to rue their missed opportunities. Sevilla have been fortunate thus far in the match. They have rarely threatened but have the lead due to a controversial penalty, which was eventually scored by Ben Yedder. They will have to make the most of their chances in the second-half as they will be eager to put the tie to bed. They also have to be at their best defensively as they won’t want to lose their lead.
