La Liga Week 6

Kanoute 18
Trochowski sent off 56, Escude sent off 68, Aduriz sent off 71
Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, Sevilla


Nine-man Sevilla defeated ten-man Valencia in a meeting that lacked quality at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. The match will be remembered more for the performance of the referee, who saw fit to send off three players over the course of the game.


Sevilla's Trochowski was ordered from the field after receiving a second yellow card mid way through the second half, before Escudé saw red for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity. Banega missed the resulting penalty for Valencia.


Aritz Aduriz was then sent off for the visitors after a stamp on Coke with twenty minutes to go, just as his team were pushing forward for an equaliser. The Spanish striker reacted aggressively, but wouldn't have been sent off if it wasn't for an extreme overreaction from the opposition player.


The winning goal was scored by Freddie Kanoute in the 18th minute, who applied the finishing touches to a sweeping Sevilla counter attack, the Malian powering home from ten yards after some good work from Jesus Navas on the right wing.


Valencia were perhaps the better side throughout, dominating periods of possession and having the better chances on goal, and Unai Emery’s side will look back in regret knowing a win could have taken them top of the table. Instead, Sevilla climbed up to second place and Valencia now sit in fifth.


However, the real talking point will be the performance of the referee and his decision to give three players their marching orders.


Sevilla(4-4-2): Varas; Navarro Corbacho, Caceres, Spahic, Escude; Medel, Perotti (Coke 70), Navas, Trochowski; Negredo (Del Moral 80), Kanoute (Rakitic 59)
Unused subs: Diego Alves, Costa, Feghouli, Parejo


Valencia(4-4-2): Guaita; Mathieu, Ruiz (Soldado 71), Rami, Bruno (Barragan 45); Banega, Jonas, Costa, Maduro; Aduriz, Piatti (Canales 63)
Unused subs: Palop, Alexis, Campana, Armenteros


Did you know… This result means Sevilla have now kept three clean sheets in their five league games.
