Matheus gets the party started after Andres Palop who had a nightmare in goal spills the ball and the Brazilian is on hand to blast it home. Braga goes two up through fellow Brazilian, Rodrigo Lima. Sevilla answer through Luis Fabiano and Jesus Navas to draw level.
Undaunted, Braga forge ahead as Lima scores two more to complete his hat trick. Veteran Frederic Kanoute scores Sevilla’s third goal in the dying minutes but it is all too little too late.
Sevilla fail to become the fourth Spanish side to enter the Champions Legue while Braga records a historic entry into the competition. Their fans will remember this night at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium.
