Victor Machin Vitolo​'s 13sec goal, a new Europa League record

Victor Machin `Vitolo` set a new Europa League fastest goalscoring record when he put Sevilla into a 13 second lead against Villarreal on Thursday.

The previous quickest goal in the competition belonged to Argentina`s Ismael Blanco, who scored after 19sec for AEK Athens against BATE Borisov in November, 2009.

History was made in this last 16 first leg when the ball was lofted forward from kick-off, with Kevin Gameiro passing to Vitolo who controlled it with his body before firing past Villarreal keeper Sergio Asenjo.

The holder of the fastest goal in any European competition belongs to Roy Makaay, the Dutch player who scored after 12sec for Bayern Munich against Real Madrid in the Champions League in 2006/2007.
