Sevilla moved back up to second pending Barcelona’s game on Sunday after they won 2-0 against Eibar on Saturday evening. The visitors caused some problems for the local defence early on, Adrián González and Pedro León firing efforts just wide, and Lejeune bringing a good save out of Sergio Rico following a free kick. Franco Vázquez and Jovetic tried their luck at the other end though, and with thirty minutes on the clock Sarabia put the Andalusians ahead with a far post volley from Jovetic’s cross. Rico had to keep out Rubén Peña and Sergi Enrich either side of half time, but with the game coming to an end Vitolo wrapped things up after Jovetic set him up on a quick counter-attack.
