Alvaro Negredo turned the ball into the net from close range to give Sevilla a 75th-minute lead at the Riazor and Ivan Rakitic added a second seven minutes from time when he charged down an attempted clearance by goalkeeper Daniel Aranzubia.

The result took the club joint second with Malaga and Mallorca in the Liga table with 11 points from five games.

Malaga ground out a 0-0 draw at Athletic Bilbao on Sunday, while Mallorca defeated Valencia 2-0.
