Rafa Mir helps keep Sevilla's Champions League hopes alive

Rafa Mir left Wolves in the summer to go and play Champions League football with Sevilla.

With one game left of the group stage, the Spanish outfit sit third in their group.

But their hopes of qualification for the knockout round are still alive, thanks to a 2-0 win over Wolfsburg last night.

Mir netted the second goal of the game in stoppage time, with his first ever Champions League strike.

Mir began the game on the bench and only came on for Munir El Haddadi in the 80th minute.

In his short time on the pitch, he managed three shots on goal, although the only one on target was the one which found the back of the net.

He also mustered a key pass as he crammed a lot into just ten touches in ten minutes.

Mir’s late, late goal can be watched below.

Sevilla travel to face RB Salzburg in their final group stage game next month.

Salzburg are a point and a place above Sevilla in the group, so Mir and his teammates know a win would take them into the last 16.

He might have to settle for a place on the bench for that one, but if that is the case, Mir will hope to make an impact from the bench like he did last night.
