Sevilla stay on course after Nasri strike sinks Dinamo
Sevilla edged closer to the Champions League last 16 after a first-half goal by Samir Nasri gave the Spanish side a 1-0 win at Croatian title holders Dinamo Zagreb in their Group H match on Tuesday.
The result left Sevilla, the winners of the last three titles in the second-tier Europa League, level on seven points at the top of the section alongside Juventus, who were 1-0 winners at Olympique Lyonnais.
Lyon have three points while Dinamo, the only side of 32 teams in the competition yet to score a goal, have none.
Sevilla missed a string of chances on a slippery surface either side of Nasri's clinical 37th-minute finish, when he poked the ball home from a tight angle after a low cross by Mariano Ferreira.
Nasri, who moved to Sevilla on a year-long loan from Manchester City during the close season, shot wide from a similar position midway through the first half as Dinamo struggled to get out of their own half.
