21 years after their last Champions League appearance, current Ligue 1 outfit RC Lens has done more than compete with Europa League defending champions Sevilla. They managed to leave with the point of the draw against Sevilla (1-1).

RC Lens, last in Ligue 1 after five rounds, resisted well to Sevilla FC (1-1) in Spain, Wednesday night on the first day of the Champions League. Sevilla, winners of the Europa League for the seventh time in their history last season, opened the scoring through Lucas Ocampos, with a header that lobbed Brice Samba (9th). Lens, who will host Arsenal on October 3, equalised through Angelo Fulgini (24th) on a free kick whistled for a foul by Sergio Ramos on Elye Wahi.
