Sevilla and Valencia both progress

Sevilla may have been a man down after Moreno was sent packing for picking up a second booking but they were fairly comfortable 4-1 winners on the night, 4-2 on aggregate, against Porto.

Rakitic, who played a blinder, scored from the penalty spot after just five minutes and this was followed by goals from Machín Pérez, Bacca and Gameiro.  It was a soft penalty and a clear dive, but they all count. Quaresma scored a late consolation goal for Porto.

Valencia scored five on the night in a 5-0 victory over Basel after trailing 0-3 from the first leg, the match going into extra time to settle matters. Garcia bagged a hat-trick and Vargas and Bernat grabbed one apiece. Basel ended the match with just nine men on the field.
