With Villarreal beating Real Sociedad earlier in the day, Sevilla went in to the very last game of the season against Elche already sure of fifth spot. And there was a festival atmosphere as they ran out 3-1 winners in the end, the visitors applauding their hosts on to the pitch in traditional style as they presented their newly won Europa League trophy to their fans. Iborra opened the scoring for the locals with a quarter of an hour gone after Fazio headed on a Reyes corner, turning a shot past Manu Herrera from close up after Coke laid the ball back across goal. Javi Varas had to save from Flores and Márquez either side of half time, but Jairo fired home the second on the hour mark after picking up a pass from Diogo Figueiras. Iborra made it three a few minutes later after Reyes lifted the ball over the defence, and with the game in injury time Boakye had the honour of scoring what was the last goal of a very exciting season.
