Europa League third qualifying round, first leg

Sevilla 1 - Zalgiris Vilnius 0

Sevilla were only able to beat Zalgiris by a single goal, leaving everything open for next week’s second leg on the Lithuanian side’s artificial pitch. With one eye on the upcoming Spanish Supercup, Machín left out several key players. Banega gave the Andalusians the lead with a direct free kick shortly before the break, but they were unable to do more, and only a string of saves by Vaclik prevented the visitors from coming away with a draw.
