Sevilla's hopes of a place in
European competition next season suffered a big blow when they
let slip a one-goal lead to lose 5-1 at Getafe in La Liga on
Michel's Sevilla, who had won four of their last five
matches to close to within a point of sixth place and the Europa
League slots, took the lead at the Coliseum with a stunning
strike from Alvaro Negredo in the 19th minute.
Pedros Rios engineered the turnaround, however, having a
hand in four of Getafe's five goals, scoring one himself and
laying on two for Miku and one for Miguel Torres.
Sevilla slipped down to ninth on 45 points, level with
Athletic Bilbao, Atletico Madrid, Espanyol and Getafe who are
Real Madrid top the standings with 85 points from 33 games,
four ahead of Barcelona, who they play at the Nou Camp on
Saturday, with five games left this season.
Sevilla looked to be cruising when Spain striker Negredo
scored a spectacular overhead kick, but they eased off and
Torres volleyed Getafe level from a Rios corner in the 35th.
Medhi Lacen fired Getafe in front from outside the area in
the 49th and winger Rios then carved Sevilla apart.
The 30-year-old set up Miku after a mazy run, headed the
fourth and played Miku through for the fifth.
