Betis rounded off Sunday evening with their first victory in the league this season, beating Valencia 3-1 to move above their opponents in the table. The locals were already three up at the break, Salva Sevilla winning the ball in midfield and setting up Jorge Molina for him to beat Diego Alves with a low shot in the tenth minute. Sevilla himself scored the second after a quick passing move with Juanfran and Molina, and although the visitors had a goal disallowed for a positional offside, Sevilla popped up again to collect a pass from Vadillo and steer a shot under the legs of the keeper. Either side of half time Alves was in action again to keep out Sevilla and Molina, and it was only in the last half hour that Djukic's side woke up, Sara doing well to save a Dani Parejo free kick before Ricardo Costa headed in another free kick from Banega. Even so substitute Cedrick could have done more damage had he been able to convert a couple of chances near the end.
