The boys in claret and blue stormed into the final of the prestigious European competition with a stunning victory over their Portuguese opponents.

It means they will return to the Stadio Giuseppe Sinigaglia in Lake Como on Monday for a showpiece final against Chelsea.

The intriguing semi-final encounter went all the way to extra-time.

Graham Burke put Villa head with a penalty but Sporting hit back midway through the second half.

But it was left to Jack Grealish and Samir Carruthers to secure Villa's final berth.

Monday's opponents Chelsea also needed extra-time in their semi-final win over Arsenal earlier in the day.
