Despite the defeat, Betis are also through, their superior head-to-head record against Vitoria of Guimaraes — who drew 0-0 with HNK Rijeka in Croatia — guaranteeing them at least second spot.

Betis’ local rivals Sevilla are certain to progress from Group H, despite only managing a 1-1 home draw with GD Estoril Praia in Spain.

Rubin Kazan of Russia, KRC Genk of Belgium, SS Lazio, Anzhi Makhachkala, Greece’s PAOK and AZ of the Netherlands also secured their berths in the knockout stages on Thursday.
