But in a one-sided second half, Sevilla breached the stubborn home defence when goalkeeper Jasmin Handanovic failed to keep out substitute Ganso's low shot following good work by Joaquin Correa.

Ten-man Porto advanced out of Group G with a 5-2 defeat of a disappointing Monaco side, who also went down a man at the Estadio do Dragao.

Brahimi and Aboubakar, which led to two of the first three goals, was decisive for a victory that confirmed Porto as, once again, the only Portuguese club to reach the last 16.

Maribor, the Slovenian champions, were already consigned to bottom place after scoring two goals in five group matches before this, their third draw in the competition.

The Germans must pick up more points against group winners Besiktas than Porto do at home to eliminated Monaco if they are to snatch second spot.
