For the second week running FC Basel 1893 dealt late heartbreak to FC Zenit St Petersburg, Yann Sommer saving Roman Shirokov's 86th-minute penalty to take the Swiss champions through to the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals.
Axel Witsel's first-half header set Luciano Spalletti's Russian title holders on the comeback trail and when Marcelo Díaz collected two bookings in four minutes before the interval, the visitors were up against it. Yet they weathered the storm and repelled Zenit captain Shirokov's effort to earn their spot in the last eight.
