Deportivo and Sevilla played out a thrilling 3-3 draw in the last match on Saturday evening, a result which left the Andalusians two points off the European spots and the home side four points above the drop zone. Lassad gave the Galicians the lead on the quarter hour mark with an impressive shot from outside of the area, and things seemed to be going Depor's way when Palop was sent off early in the second half for handling outside of the area, and then Lassad scored again from Adrián's assist soon afterwards. But Negredo got one back just a minute later after latching on to a loose ball in the area, and after Adrián had a goal ruled out for a borderline offside, Escudé equalised after Aranzubia failed to hold on to a long Luis Fabiano free kick. Five minutes later Negredo picked up a long pass from substitute Zokora to make it three, and it looked as if the ten men had turned things around until Laure levelled the scores again with two minutes to go, a goal which set off the protests of the visitors after a linesman raised his flag during the play.
