Sevilla's nightmare week continued, the Andalusians losing 2-3 to Espanyol for their third defeat in seven days. Kerzhakov missed an early chance, but home-grown midfielder Angel put the visitors ahead with a well placed volley on the half hour mark, his first goal since joining the first team. Kameni had to keep out Kerzhakov again, but a gallop down the wing by Riera soon after the restart set up Luis García for the Catalans' second goal.

Within a quarter of an hour though Sevilla were level, Jarque turning a Jesús Navas cross past his own keeper and Kone heading in his first goal from Capel's cross. The locals pushed for the victory and Kameni was called upon a couple of times, but with three minutes to go Tamudo picked up a pass from Angel to win the match and take revenge for being beaten in the UEFA Cup final at the end of last season.
