Sevilla scored three goals in 22 minutes against Valencia on Wednesday night to win 3-1 and occupy the 3rd position in La Liga table.
Alejandro Gomez put Sevilla in front in the third minute at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan before Gonzalo Montiel and Rafa Mir made it three within the first half an hour.
Valencia gave themselves hope when Hugo Duro pulled one back in the 31st minute but Sevilla held their nerve in the second period to record their third win of the season.
Julen Lopetegui’s side are still unbeaten and only three points behind early leaders Atletico Madrid, who have played a game more.
Valencia’s strong start under new coach Jose Bordalas has been dented in the last few days after this latest loss comes after they conceded two late goals to lose to Real Madrid on Sunday.
