Sevilla's new coach Gregorio Manzano got off to a good start with a 0-1 victory at Borussia Dortmund, the first points for the Andalusians after their opening defeat against Paris Saint Germain. It took them some time to get going though, and Palop had to be at his best to keep out Barrios a couple of times in the first half. Sevilla's only reply had been a long shot from Luis Fabiano, but with the half time whistle approaching Guarente's wide free kick fell to Cigarini who fired a shot past Weidenfeller. Four minutes after the restart Borussia were left with ten men when Schmeltzer was shown a second yellow card for diving, and Alexis and Luis Fabiano both headed wide as Sevilla looked to finish things off. However the German side came close to saving a point in the end, Kagawa hitting the post and Cáceres having to clear off the line from Hummels with Palop beaten. Three points though for the Spaniards, and if nothing else the new coach has brought them luck!
