Sevilla’s victory over league rivals Leganes on Saturday broke the team’s 17 months without an away victory in La Liga. The Jorge Sampaoli-led side had been two goals up before the newly promoted Leganes levelled in the space of three minutes. Pablo Sarabia then struck on 85 minutes to gift Sevilla victory.
With all of La Liga’s top four in action on Saturday, breaking their away-day blues was crucial for the Andalusians and Franco Vazquez’s header in the 25th minute had them on their way.
They temporarily top after their first away win in 23 in the league, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid can move back ahead of Sevilla in later games versus Real Betis and Granada.
