Sevilla stay fifth after they won 2-0 against Las Palmas on Sunday, their eleventh home win in a row in the league. After their success midweek in the cup though it took them some time to get going, and the visitors had the better of the first half, with Sergio Rico having to save from Jonathan Viera and Tana, and Viera firing a shot against the woodwork. However with twenty minutes to go Banega wriggled past two defenders to fire in a shot which ex Sevilla keeper Javi Varas couldn’t stop, and five minutes later substitutes Krohn-Dehli and Vitolo combined to set up Gameiro for the second. The defeat leaves the Canary Islanders still in the drop zone having only taken three points away from home all season.
