Setback for FC Sevilla
Seville FC have returned to reality after their triumph over Manchester United. Against CD Leganes there is a close defeat.
Five days after their victory at Old Trafford, the Andalusians lost 2-1 in the Madrid suburb early Sunday afternoon.
Unai Bustinza (41.) and Javier Eraso (69.) brought the twelfth-placed team into the lead. Mexico international Miguel Layun only scored the second goal in injury time. Top striker Wissam Ben Yedder, who had become the Spanish hero with his two goals against Manchester United, also remained pale.
The first defeat after two victories in a row makes Sevilla tremble again in the battle for international places. Should the pursuers from Villarreal and Girona win their games, the upcoming Champions League opponent of FC Bayern Munich would slip down to seventh place in the table (SERVICE: table).
