UEFA Cup, fourth round, first leg
Not the best of starts for the four Spanish clubs in the fourth round of the UEFA Cup, with three draws and a defeat between them. The better results were for the teams playing away from home, Espanyol drawing 0-0 at Maccabi Haifa and Osasuna coming away from Rangers with a 1-1 result. Raúl García had headed the Pamplona based side into the lead early on, by a last minute strike from Hemdani made it all square.
Defending champions Sevilla could only draw 2-2 with Shakhtar Donetsk, and that thanks to a late penalty from Maresca. It was the third spot kick of the night, Martí giving the Andalusians the lead, and after Hübschman had equalised with the only goal from open play, Matuzalem put the Ukrainians ahead. Celta came out worst of all the Spanish sides though, an Almeira header four minutes from the end handing them a 0-1 defeat against Werder Bremen. (08.03.07)
