Real Betis and Lyon battled to a 0-0 stalemate as their Europa League Group I campaigns got off to a disappointing start at the Estadio Benito Villamarin.

Lyon will be happier with the point away from home, but Betis coach Pepe Mel will have been disappointed with his side's display after they came into the game on the back of a 3-1 win over Valencia in the Primera Division on Sunday.

Midfielder Salva Sevilla scored twice against Valencia but started the game on the bench and it was the visitors who created the first chance after eight minutes, goalkeeper Stephan Andersen turning away Alexandre Lacazette's shot.

Three minutes later Clement Grenier was brought down by Figueras Jordi and got up to take the free-kick himself, but could only fire it over the bar.

Grenier was proving an influential figure for Lyon - who lost to Real Sociedad in a play-off to reach the Champions League group stages - and his cross was headed over by Bakary Kone from the first opening in the second half.

Another Grenier cross then saw Samuel Umtiti fire wide before Jimmy Briand's shot was cleared by Damien Perquis as the visitors battled to break the deadlock.

At the other end, substitute Sevilla - who had come on in the 66th minute for Joan Verdu - played in a cross that Nosa Igiebor could only head over the bar.

As the game entered the last five minutes, Andersen parried Lacazette's shot before the action quickly switched to the other end where Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes was finally called into serious action to turn away a shot from Cedrick Mabwati.
