That's all for today, goodbye!
It's a finely poised tie going into the second leg, which will take place at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan next Thursday. Both sides are back in league action before then though, with Juve hosting Cremonese in Serie A, while Sevilla travel to Real Valladolid in LaLiga.
Gatti's last-minute equaliser means Juventus and Sevilla finish the first leg level at 1-1. The visitors had the better of the first half and got the goal they deserved when En-Nesyri was on hand to turn Ocampos' cross past Szczesny. The Bianconeri goalkeeper also made good saves to deny Ocampos and Rakitic. Allegri's hosts came out on a mission in the second half but were let down with their final ball until the 97th minute when Gatti headed in from a corner to level the tie.

90' + 1'
Into six minutes of added time here and Juventus are struggling to get the ball upfield. They play it neatly out from the back once more, but Sevilla cut it out whenever it gets into the final third.
Juventus are still complaining that they didn't get a penalty, but Sevilla have already made their way down the other end to win a corner. It's taken short to Acuna, but his cross is over everyone and out for a goal-kick.
Rabiot has stayed down and Juventus are asking for a penalty, saying that Bade caught the midfielder. The referee doesn't give it, and the Bianconeri midfielder receives treatment on his calf.
Locatelli spots Cuadrado in space on the right, and the Colombian clips a good cross into the middle. Rabiot makes a late run onto it, but Bade does enough to put him off, and he sends his effort wide.
Cuadrado takes the free-kick, fizzing a dangerous cross into the box. It skims off Danilo's thigh on it's way to the far post, but nobody is there to turn it towards goal for Juventus.
There wasn't much in the challenge from Bade on Rabiot, but he does take him down. He's booked and Juve have a free-kick just outside the box on the left.
Sevilla's third change sees Gil making way for Lamela.
Rakitic has stayed down holding his hip after that challenge from Chiesa. It looks to be nothing more than a knock from an awkward landing, and he can carry on after treatment.
The yellow card is out again, this time for Chiesa as he stretches forward but catches Rakitic instead.
Gil isn't happy that a free-kick went against Acuna for an aerial challenge, and he's booked for dissent after knocking the ball away.
Locatelli made no attempt to play the ball as he shoved Gomez over, and the Italian has his name taken by the referee.
Pogba initially does well to hold off Bade, but as soon as he loses out, Rakitic sends it forward for Acuna to chase. He's surging down the right, but Alex Sandro gets across just in time to take it away from him.
Second change for Sevilla now, and it's Gomez that's coming on for Torres.
Cuadrado is getting away, and Rakitic wraps his arms around him to pull him back. He's booked for it.
Á. Di María
Final roll of the dice for Juve here as they try to get an equaliser. Di Maria is taken off, with Pogba on in his place.
Iling-Junior's cross is cleared by Bade, but it comes straight back to Di Maria. Milik has peeled away to the far post, but the Argentinian can't find him either and Sevilla get it away.
Juve are still dominating possession here, but the fans are starting to get irked the longer they keep it at the back. Sevilla are doing a good job of frustrating them with their compact shape.
Sevilla are trying to find their rhythm again here, but they just can't keep hold of the ball. It's sent forward for Gil down the left again, but his first touch gets away from him and Juventus are straight back on the attack.
SAVE! Chiesa's run opened Sevilla up and Di Maria flicks it onto Iling-Junior on the edge of the D. With space ahead of him, he takes on the shot from there, but Bounou gets down to hold it.
Juve are using the opportunity to make a change up front too. Vlahovic makes way, with Milik on in his place.
Bonucci has been gesturing to the bench for the last minute or so that he needs to go off after picking up a groin injury. He's replaced by Gatti.
Sevilla have a rare chance to break and Torres bursts down the right, getting his head up to spot En-Nesyri in the box. He sells him short though, and Cuadrado is back to cut it out.

GOOD CHANCE! Di Maria wins a free-kick on the right and takes it quickly, lifting it over the top into the box. Chiesa rushes onto it, but he can't make contact on the stretch and Bounou collects.
It's better from the visitors as Rakitic makes a weaving run down the right to open up a pocket of space. He fizzes a low cross into the middle, and Bonucci gets in front of En-Nesyri in time to hook it away.
Sevilla just can't get out of their own half at the moment as Juventus up the pressure. They win a corner which is swung in by Di Maria this time, but it's just too high for Iling-Junior at the near post.
Juventus have started the second half brightly, with both Chiesa and Iling-Junior putting good crosses into the box. Vlahovic can't get close to either of them though, and Sevilla are able to clear their lines.
Juve get us back underway for the second half!
And Kostic is also taken off, with Iling-Junior on in his place.
There's a double change for Juventus at the break. Miretti is the first to make way, with Chiesa replacing him.
Mendilibar will be pleased with his side's first-half performance. He'll be hoping to make a quicker start to the next period though to get an important second goal. Juve made a bright start, but gradually sat back and struggled to create clear-cut opportunities. Allegri will be looking for a way to get his forwards more involved, especially Di Maria, who was quiet.
En-Nesyri's goal gives Sevilla a 1-0 lead over Juventus at half-time. The visitors had the better of the first half, with Szczesny being called into action to deny Ocampos in the early exchanges. The Argentinian then set up the goal, bursting forward before squaring it to En-Nesyri to slot home. Rakitic also forced a good save out of him, while Vlahovic sent a glorious opportunity over the bar at the other end.

Acuna finds himself in space through the middle and Locatelli backs off, so he decides to try his luck. He curls a shot towards the near post, and a deflection off the Italian helps it over the bar.
Another Sevilla attack fizzles out, and Juventus break quickly on the counter again. Kostic slides it into Vlahovic early this time, but he can't sort his feet out quick enough and loses it to Gudelj on the edge of the box.

CHANCE! Vlahovic switches it out to Kostic on the left, and he times his run perfectly to stay onside. He tries his luck from an angle, and he drills it wide of the far post.
Sevilla win a free-kick and Juve are all over the place as Rakitic whips it into the box. Ocampos gets his head to it, but can't direct the pacy cross towards goal as it flies well wide.
