Fabian Schär's penalty killed off FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk's UEFA Europa League challenge, with tonight's 1-1 draw in Ukraine setting up FC Basel 1893 for a round of 16 meeting with FC Zenit St Petersburg.

With both sides down to ten men, Roman Zozulya was penalised for a block on Valentin Stocker in the Dnipro area, and Schär stepped up on 81 minutes to beat Jan Laštůvka with a low strike to the goalkeeper's left. Just five minutes earlier, Dnipro had scented the chance of a comeback when Yevhen Seleznyov sent Yann Sommer the wrong way with a near identical spot kick, but Basel's 2-0 first-leg lead proved to be decisive.
