Europa League: 10-Man Sevilla Hold On To Aggregate Win Over Dinamo To Book Last 16

Europa League specialist Sevilla needed to see out a nervy final 25 minutes to progress to the last 16 as the Spaniards progressed 3-2 on aggregate despite a 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday.

Mislav Orsic scored the only goal of the night from the penalty spot after Marcos Acuna handled inside his box.

Six-time winner Sevilla had to see out stoppage time with 10 men as Thomas Delaney saw red but held on to keep their dream alive of reaching the final in their stadium come May.

Attention will also be on events in Seville on Thursday night as Zenit St Petersburg face Real Betis amid the backdrop of Russia's military invasion of Ukraine.

St Petersburg is expected to be stripped of hosting the Champions League final on Friday and there have been calls for UEFA to expel Russian sides from European competition.

Zenit is the sole remaining Russian club in the Champions League, Europa League or Conference League and already trail 3-2 from the first leg.

Porto beat Lazio 4-3 on aggregate after a 2-2 draw in Rome, while Atalanta was convincing 3-0 winners in Greece to see off Olympiakos 5-1 on aggregate.
