Noah Okafor scored the only goal of the game as RB Salzburg entered the knockout stage for the first time in the history of the Champions League with a 1-0 win over 10-man Sevilla at the Red Bull Arena on Wednesday.

Salzburg finished runners-up in Group G with 10 points from their six matches, one behind pool winners Lilly. Sevilla are third and will play in the Europa League play-off round.

There was some goal-mouth action in the first half but the game came alive after the break as Salzburg were assisted in the 65th minute by a second yellow card for Sevilla key midfielder John Jordan.

The match was played behind closed doors without fans due to increased COVID-19 restrictions in Austria, so the hosts were unable to celebrate their historic achievement with their supporters.
