    • 90+2' There goes the final whistle. A 3-0 win for the home side. All too easy for Sevilla this evening.
    • 89' Two minutes to be added to this match.
    • 88' Navas working so hard to keep a loose ball in play. Looks like a 3-0 win then for Sevilla with all the damage done in the first period.
    • 87' Ivan Rakitic replaces Álvaro Negredo, who is given a standing ovation for his two goals.
    • 85' Fazio brings down Aranda as he head for the closing moments of this one-sided match.
    • 84' Palop comes to edge of his box to collect a speculative long ball.
    • 82' Diawara can't keep the ball in play and the visitors will have a goalkick that Gago thumps down the park.
    • 80' Navas again showing some lovely skills, but the finish can't match the run as he hammers the ball well wide of goal.
    • 78' Nice play by Navas to skip into the visiting box, but he clatters the shot into the side of the net.
    • 77' Paredes clips the free-kick over the bar. No real power or direction in that shot. We remain at 3-0 in favour of Sevilla.
    • 75' Andujar brings down Postiga, and Zaragoza have a free-kick 25 yards from goal.
    • 73' Postiga whacks an effort well wide of goal. Pretty tired attempt from distance.
    • 71' Mateos has been booked for a high boot. Caught the face of Negredo with that challenge.
    • 69' Another change for Sevilla as Campana comes on for Trochowski.
    • 68' This game done and dusted a long time ago, but Sevilla could easily add to their winning tally here.
    • 67' Lafita is replaced by Aranda for Zaragoza.
    • 65' Golden chance for Postiga, but he ends up knocking the ball wide from close range. How did he miss that? Should have been 3-1 there and then.
    • 64' Luis Garcia takes out Fazio with a late slidiing tackle. Fortunate to avoid a booking there.
    • 63' The somewhat sparse crowd inside the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan continue to cheer their side in this encounter.
    • 61' Change for Sevilla as Babacar Diawara replaces Manu.
    • 59' Navas showing some trickery in the Zaragoza box, but the home side smash the ball clear.
    • 57' Lafita unfortunate seconds ago to thump a shot into the side of the Sevilla net. Doesn't look like the visiting side are going to come up with a goal here.
    • 56' Chance for Navas on the run. Goes for goal from the edge of the visiting box, but the shot is wide of goal.
    • 55' Lafita hoists a ball down the middle but Postiaga is offside.
    • 53' Sevilla will be five points behind fourh-placed Malaga with a win. Malaga slumped to a 2-1 loss to Villarreal earlier tonight.
    • 51' Navas also seeing a shot blocked by Gago. Sevilla looking very dangerous on the break.
    • 49' Sevilla have not lost any of their last four league games with F. Teixeira Vitienes as referee. That is not going to change this evening.
    • 48' Gago forced to pull a save at point-blank range to deny Negredo a certain goal! Almost a fourth for the home side. Zaragoza cut open with far too much ease again.
    • 47' Pinter has departed for Zaragoza to be replaced by Oriol.
    • 46' The teams are back out for the second half. Off we go then with Sevilla holding a 3-0 lead.
    • 45+3' All over for the first period! And looks all over for this match with Sevilla holding a 3-0 lead at the break.
    • 44' Three minutes added on forr the treatment required for Palop earlier in the match.
    • 43' The home fans in party mood watching their side dominate the ball. Sevilla with almost 60 percent of possession.
    • 42' A 3-0 lead doesn't really flatter the home side. Have been the better side by some margin.
    • 41' GOAL! Negredo follows up to nod the ball home after Gago had saved his initial attempt. Lovely cross by Navas. Zaragoza being ripped apart here.
    • 39' Negredo nods wide of the goal! Should really have netted there. Was a free header 10 yards out.
    • 38' Zaragoza will remain second bottom of the table unless they can find a couple of goals. Doesn't look likely at the moment.
    • 37' Medel tracks the run of Postiga, who appeals for a corner but the referee doesn't want to know.
    • 36' Paredes involved in a strong physical challenge with Negredo, who needs some time to recover before play is resumed.
    • 35' Zuculini is wheeled on to take over from Apono, who seems to have hurt his groin here.
    • 34' Apono is down on the ground and needing a spot of treatment here.
    • 32' With the exception of three goals from Negredo, the last 23 goals Sevilla have netted against Zaragoza in La Liga have been scored by foreign players.
    • 31' Postiga fires in a shot from distance, but easy pickings for Palop to make the save in the home goal.
    • 29' Glorious chance for the visiting side to respond, but Apono knocks the ball wide with only Palop to beat. Slack play by the home team to lose possession.
    • 27' The visiting side left for dead at the home forward darted through the middle to slide the ball beyond Gago. Lovely ball by Manu.
    • 26' GOAL! Negredo scores for the home side and Sevilla lead 2-0.
    • 24' Navas is next into the book for a petulant late kick on Alvarez.
    • 23' Zaragoza yet to manage a shot at goal. A goalkick to the home side as Palop hammers it long the park.
    • 22' Both Sevilla and Zaragoza ended their season-high run of three consecutive victories by failing to pick up a win in the last gameweek.
    • 21' Pinter has been booked for a blatant tug on Jesus Navas.
    • 19' It was Luna who provided the corner for Fazio's headed opener. Zaragoza also pumping in the high balls, but Palop deals well with a couple of deliveries by punching clear.
    • 18' Zaragoza’s joint-biggest La Liga win in their history was an 8-1 hammering of Sevilla back in 1987/88.
    • 17' Escude brings down Apono. Late challenge.
    • 15' Jesus Navas decides to try his luck from distance. Shot flies over the bar.
    • 14' Manu heads the ball on, but he can only nod it back to Gago in the visiting goal.
    • 13' Not exactly a full house in for this one, but the locals enjoying their night out so far as Sevilla keep possession.
    • 12' Sevilla have won five of their last six league games against Zaragoza, losing the other.
    • 10' No chance for Gago in the visiting goal. Little wonder he is looking around at his defenders there.
    • 8' GOAL! Fazio rises to power a header into the net from close range. Sevilla have a 1-0 lead.
    • 7' Think it was Helder Postiga who caught Palop late. Pinter puts the ball behind his own goal for a corner to the home side.
    • 6' Manolo Jimenez (Zaragoza): "I'm going back home as the coach of Real Zaragoza and we will work to try to achieve victory from the first minute. Our salvation will come from courage. We will have to be the strongest we can be."
    • 5' It was Mateos who caught the Sevilla keeper later. Thankfully, Palop is back on his feet and we can continue.
    • 4' This doesn't look too clever for Palop, who has hit the ground after colliding with a visiting player. Needs the smelling salts here.
    • 3' Pinter brings down Negredo with a late challenge. Free-kick to the home side.
    • 2' Sevilla wearing white strips and black socks with the visitors in orange.
    • 1' We are off and running in this first half.
