Adeyemi makes Champions League history in wild penalty-filled affair between Sevilla & Salzburg

No less than four spot-kicks were given in the first 45 minutes, with one player earning three of those for his team

No less than four penalties were given in the first half of Red Bull Salzburg's Champions League group-stage draw against Sevilla on Tuesday, setting a curious new first for the clubs - as well as for Salzburg wonderkid Karim Adeyemi. 

The two sides went into the break tied at 1-1, as Ivan Rakitic's spot-kick dragged Sevilla back into the game following Luka Sucic's own penalty effort. 

But there were plenty of other chances to get on the scoresheet in the first 45 minutes, with Salzburg in particular rueing their erratic shooting from 12 yards out. The Austrian side will feel they could've done better than an eventual 1-1 draw.
