Europa League - day 6

Good news for Spanish sides in the last round of league matches, all three qualifying for the next round as group champions. Sevilla beat Krasnodar 3-0, Ben Yedder scoring twice in the first ten minutes, and Banega converting a penalty at the start of the second half after Cristian Ramirez was sent off for keeping out an André Silva header with his hand. And Villarreal won 2-0 against Spartak Moscow, Samu Chukwueze getting the first early on, and Ekambi making it two after the restart to get new coach Luis García off to a good start. Betis were already sure of their place in the knock-out stage coming in to their game at Dudelange, but a 0-0 draw on an icy pitch was enough to ensure them top spot as well. (13.12.18)
