Relive the action as it happened with the best Europa League final tweets.

Between Unai Emery's red patched sleeves & the ref's screaming yellow socks, this #EuropaLeague final is one big fashion disaster. #UELfinal

There is that many empty seats at #EuropaLeagueFinal you'd think Man City were playing.

So many injuries. This no longer looks like a football match but the opening beach scene from Saving Private Ryan. #EuropaLeagueFinal

PENALTIES! The second most exciting event in football, after a dog on the pitch. #EuropaLeagueFinal

Yay. The agony of penalty kicks. There will almost certainly be tears. Broken men, with shattered dreams. *gets popcorn* #EuropaLeagueFinal

Approximately 85 officials watching the keeper and none of them can see him 5 foot off his line for a penalty. #EuropaLeagueFinal

In 1962 after he was denied a payrise, Béla Guttmann said-"Not in 100 years from now will Benfica win a European Cup". 8 final losses since!

Sign Marko Marin. Put him on the bench. Win the Europa League. Simples.

Marko Marin has won more Chelsea trophies this season that his parent club, Chelsea.

ITV4 had 'voice of Tim Sherwood' on the screen there. Cheers lads. Would never have guessed who was speaking without that little hint.

Drink this all in, Hull fans. This will be you next year. Believe. JUST BLOODY BELIEVE!!!

Tell why the ref never pulled up Beto about coming off his line, cause even he thought Lima and Cardozo were being ????s #JustHitIt

— Mark Ridgers (@MarkRidgers) May 14, 2014

Kop End, August 2003. Cudicini less than a foot off his line. Penalty retaken. Beto three yards off his. Rule applied once & never since.

— Ian Roberts (@iandroberts) May 14, 2014

Curse or not, what Beto was allowed to get away with in the shoot-out was all very strange, eerie even.
