Sevilla moved up to fifth pending Málaga's game on Sunday thanks to a 0-1 victory at Zaragoza on Saturday evening. The Andalusians had not won in five games, but they dominated the first half, Negredo going close a couple of times before scoring what was to prove the only goal from the penalty spot after David Mateos brought him down in the area midway through the first half. Roberto had to be on his toes to keep out Trochowski before the break and Campaña after the restart, and his opposite number Javi Varas pulled off a first class save from a wide shot by Juan Carlos earlier in the second half. Any hopes the locals had though of a comeback were dashed when Juan Carlos was sent off after he shrugged off Coke with a bit too much force late on, and Aguirre's side, like Sporting, drop back down in to the relegation zone.
