Sevilla's Ivan Rakitic scored a hotly-disputed penalty three minutes from time as it rescued a 1-1 draw at Wolfsburg in its Champions League Group G showdown on Wednesday.

Winger Renato Steffen gave the home side the lead early in the second period but Sevilla, who conceded three penalties in its last Champions League game, was handed a lifeline when Josuha Guilavogui was adjudged to have fouled Erik Lamela in the area, which led to a second yellow card for the midfielder.

Replays suggested Lamela had committed the foul, but when Bulgarian referee Georgi Kabakov was asked to review the incident by the Video Assistant Referee, he pointed to the spot.

In the other group G fixture, teenager Karim Adeyemi scored two penalties to earn RB Salzburg a 2-1 home victory over French champion Lille.

The German international found the back of the net each side of the interval.

Salzburg keeper Philip Koehn was at fault as Burak Yilmaz scored with a free kick after 62 minutes to give Lille hope but Salzburg dominated the closing stages.

Sevilla and Wolfsburg are second and third respectively in the group with two points each after two matches behind leader RB Salzburg who has four points while Lille sits at the bottom with one point.
