Sevilla emulated Barcelona's result, drawing 1-1 at CSKA Moscow on Wednesday to keep up their impressive record in Europe. Played in sub-zero temperatures, the Andalusians took some time to warm up, with Honda driving a couple of shots just wide early on. But with twenty-five minutes on the clock Negredo opened the scoring for Manolo Jiménez's team after the defence failed to cut out a cross from Jesús Navas. Adonin drilled a long shot just wide and Honda got his bonnet to a cross either side of half time, but Negredo tested Akinfeev following a short free kick a few minutes later. Midway through the second half though ex Betis and Liverpool winger Mark González caught out Palop with an impressive shot from outside of the area to equalise, and Necid could have won it for the Russian side had Palop not made two top class saves from the striker later on.
