Sevilla were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Stuttgart on day four, but after three wins in their previous games the point ensured them a place in the first knock out round. Jesús Navas opened the scoring with just under a quarter of an hour gone after running on to a pass from Luis Fabiano, and Negredo came close to a second before the break.
The German side came back after the restart though, with Pogrebnyak in particular hitting the bar. Sevilla were left with ten men for the last quarter of an hour when substitute Duscher limped off with all three changes made, and the visitors took advantage to equalise through Kuzmanovic, his shot taking a slight deflection off Schieber to wrong-foot Javi Varas.
