Sevilla was rewarded for a display of attacking football with a well-deserved 1-0 victory over Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday that kept up its momentum in the Champions League.
After winning three consecutive Europa League trophies, Sevilla continued to make it presence felt in Europe’s top competition – courtesy of a first-half strike from Samir Nasri on a rainy night at Zagreb’s Maksimir Stadium.
Nasri, who joined the Spanish side from Manchester City on loan ahead of the season, netted from close range in the 37th minute – just 15 minutes after he missed the target in a similar situation.
Sevilla has not conceded a goal in its three Champions League matches and is level on seven points with Group H leader Juventus, which won 1-0 in Lyon.
Lyon has three points, and Dinamo zero.
