The last match on Sunday evening was the local derby between Sevilla and Málaga, the home side winning it 2-1 in the end thanks to two goals in the first half from Negredo. There was a lot of speculation as to how Pelegrini's side would get on after their summer spending spree, but within a minute and a half they were behind when Negredo got between two defenders to head in a Jesús Navas cross. Midway through the first half the Spanish international striker scored his second from Perotti's cross, and he should have had a hat-trick after the break when he shot wide with the goal at his mercy. Otherwise Trochowski tested Willy with a couple of long shots, and the visitors hardly got a look in until Cazorla curled a free kick in to the top corner of the net with ten minutes to go. After that there were some nervous moments for the home fans, but they held on for a win which helps restore morale after their elimination from the Europa League on Thursday.
