Ben Yedder scored his 13th of the season in all competitions

Wissam Ben Yedder scored twice as Sevilla beat Krasnador to reach the Europa League knockout stage as Group J winners.

French striker Ben Yedder scored his goals in the first 10 minutes and Ever Banega added a second-half penalty.

Despite defeat, Russian club Krasnodar went through in second place, as Standard Liege missed the chance to go above them.

The Belgians needed to win but drew 0-0 away to Turkish club Akhisarspor.

Sevilla won the Europa League three seasons in row from 2013-14 under Arsenal boss Unai Emery.

Elsewhere, last season's losing finalists Marseille finished bottom of Group H as they lost 3-1 at home to Apollon Limassol.

Eintracht Frankfurt had already won the group, while Lazio were already certain of finishing second. Frankfurt beat the Italians 2-1 in Rome on Thursday.

During the game, a number of flares were thrown on to the running track around the pitch of the Stadio Olimpico by members of a large away support, which outnumbered the home fans inside the ground.

Five Frankfurt fans were arrested following clashes with Lazio supporters near the ground.

Rennes beat Astana 2-0 to secure their place in the last 32 by climbing above the Kazakh champions into second in Group K, which was won by Dynamo Kiev, despite the Ukrainians' 1-0 home defeat by Jablonec.

In Group I, Genk finished top as they beat Norwegian side Sarpsborg 4-0 at home, and Malmo went through as runners-up by defeating Besiktas 1-0.
