Sevilla followed up their midweek cup win with a 3-0 victory over neighbours Granada on Monday night, a result which takes Unai Emery's side up to eleventh in the table. The locals got off to an electrifying start, Roberto having to keep out Reyes, Negredo and Fazio in the first fifteen minutes, and with half an hour on the clock Kondogbia headed them in to the lead from a Rakitic corner. Either side of half time referee Gil Manzano let Mainz off a possible penalty on Kondogbia, and Diakhaté off a red card for a challenge on Medel which left the midfielder with a bandaged head, and Navas almost scored a second with an overhead kick which just missed the post. The locals wrapped things up though with two more goals in a four minute period later on in the second half, the first a Negredo header from a Rakitic cross, and the second a shot from close up by Medel after Negredo's attempted shot from a Rakitic corner bounced across to him, leaving Granada on the brink of the drop zone and their coach Juan Antonio Anquela possibly facing the chop this week.
