Sevilla substitutes sink ten-man Valencia

Ten-man Valencia CF slipped to their third defeat in four Liga games as two substitutes − Álvaro Negredo and Alejandro Alfaro − fired Sevilla FC to within a point of the Liga's top four.

Álvaro Negredo and Alejandro Alfaro scored within minutes of coming on as Sevilla FC moved to within a point of the top four by defeating ten-man Valencia CF 2-0 at home.

Negredo struck moments after replacing Ndri Romaric in the 53rd minute, firing through the legs of substitute goalkeeper Vicente Guaita after Martín Cáceres' strike had been parried into his path, before Alfaro headed in Mouhamadou Dabo's cross. The defeat, Valencia's third in their last four league games, leaves the visitors level with their opponents in fifth spot, one point shy of fourth-placed RCD Espanyol and nine behind Liga leaders Real Madrid CF.

In what was a high-tempo start for the hosts, featuring attacking play down both wings, Frédéric Kanouté forced a near-post save from César Sánchez following Diego Perotti's run to the byline. Valencia were reduced to ten men when Mehmet Topal (25) was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Cáceres, while at the break Guaita was brought on for only his second Liga appearance in place of César.

Luís Fabiano struck the crossbar after Negredo's opener and with Sevilla  seeking to end any hopes the visitors had of claiming a draw, Alfaro (77) extended Los Rojiblancos' lead three minutes after entering the fray for Perotti.
