Sevilla beat struggling Sporting Gijón 3-0 on Tuesday evening to consolidate seventh spot in the table. Luis Fabiano was an early menace for the visiting defence, bringing a couple of good saves out of Cuéllar before winning himself a penalty after Eguren brought him down in the area. The midfielder was sent off for the challenge, and the Brazilian striker stepped up to convert the spot kick himself. Soon afterwards Fazio headed against the bar, and a few minutes later Perotti made it two with a low volley after Gregory headed away a cross. Twenty minutes in to the second half Negredo scored a third after picking up an assist from Rakitic, and with the Asturians resigned to defeat, the locals could have added to their total late on.
