Sevilla beat Atlético Madrid 3-1 on Saturday evening in a preview of this season's Spanish cup final. After a gruelling Europa League semi-final at Anfield, Quique Sánchez Flores made several changes to his line up, and they found themselves behind in only the fifth minute when Luis Fabiano turned the ball past De Gea following a corner. Tiago levelled the scores only a couple of minutes later, but the Andalusians were ahead again soon afterwards when Negredo drilled home a penalty kick after Valera tripped Adriano inside the box. And six minutes before half time it was virtually all over when Negredo converted a second penalty after Perea pushed over Luis Fabiano, the striker limping off with an injury which could keep him out for a couple of weeks or so. Reyes hit the post after that and Agüero had a goal disallowed for a borderline offside later on, and Fazio headed against the bar at the other end. But in the end both sides settled for a result which actually favours Atlético, who will automatically qualify for next season's Europa League as cup finalists whatever the result if Sevilla finish in the fourth Champions League spot.
