Pablo Machin’s Sevilla smashed Levante 5-0 on Saturday afternoon at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
Whilst the scoreline suggests that Sevilla had it all their way, if you watched the first half – you would have betted on the visitors getting a result but a superb second half performance saw the Andalusian’s round off a good week which included beating Barcelona in the Copa del Rey.
Wissam Ben Yedder opened the scoring and continued his fine form, before Andre Silva also got in on the act to make it 2-0 in the hour mark.
Levante did attempt to get themselves back in the game but they failed to hit the target from any of their seven attempts at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
Any hope of that happening was ended when Franco Vazquez got on the scoresheet after 70 minutes.
And, the tie was sealed when arguably La Liga’s most in form player – Pablo Sarabia, scored from the penalty spot.
The win was rounded off in stoppage time when Dutch winger Quincy Promes got the fifth and ensured that Sevilla would move on to 36 points, level with Real Madrid in third place.
Machin’s side remain five points behind second place Atletico Madrid and could be overtaken by Los Blancos on Sunday after their game with Espanyol.
It was the first win for Sevilla in La Liga since December and follows the 2-0 win over Barca in the Copa del Rey; the second leg of which will be played next Wednesday at the Camp Nou.
