Seville:

Goals from Federico Fazio, Manu del Moral and Frederic Kanoute gave Sevilla a 3-0 win over Getafe on Monday for their first victory at home in four matches in the Spanish league.


Sevilla are now only two points behind fourth-place Levante, who are in the last Champions League position.

Sevilla went in front in the 32nd minute when Fazio was left unmarked at the edge of the six-yard box to head in Ivan Ratikic's corner.

Del Moral, who joined Sevilla from Getafe in the offseason, made it 2-0 in the 50th. Kanoute capped the win in stoppage time with a well-placed shot into the right corner of the net.

Getafe, who had won in their previous three league visits to Sanchez Pizjuan stadium, have yet to win away from home this season and are one point above the relegation zone.

Last weekend, league leaders Real Madrid beat Sporting Gijon 3-0 to remain three points ahead of Barcelona, who routed Levante 5-0 but have played an extra game.

The two rivals meet Saturday in the first "clasico" match of the season at Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

Valencia defeated Espanyol 2-1 to stay in third place, four points behind Barcelona and four points ahead of Levante.

Also, it was: Racing Santander 1, Villarreal 0; Atletico Madrid 3, Rayo Vallecano 1; Real Sociedad 3, Malaga 2; Osasuna 2, Real Betis 1; Mallorca 1, Athletic Bilbao 1 and Granada 1, Zaragoza 0.
