Ganso at the double for Sevilla

Sevilla further cemented their Champions League spot with a 2-0 win over struggling Granada on Friday night.

Ganso netted both goals, opening the scoring on just four minutes before grabbing a second a minute into the second half.

The result sees Sevilla move level with third-placed Atletico Madrid although having scored less goals and with a game more.

Granada, now under the guise of Tony Adams, who oversaw his second loss in charge in his second game, remain in 19th place, with 20 points, two from safety.

Vicente Iborra hit the crossbar on three minutes before Ganso picked up a Stevan Jovetic pass to fire into the top right corner of the net.

Pablo Sarabia fired wide on 13 minutes as Joaquín Correa saw his 26th minute header saved as it made it way to goal.

Ganso tested Guillermo Ochoa with 30 minutes played ahead of saved attempt from Correa.

Sevilla continued to create a number of half chances while Isaac Cuenca was off target for Granada as the half wore down, that also saw Nico Pareja go close before Mehdi Carcela-González had a good shot saved by Sergio Rico.

Pablo Sarabia teed Ganso up for a simple finish at the start of the second half before Jovetic headed over moments later.

Ganso continued to look dangerous while Pareja headed wide, and Andreas Pereira fluffed his chance in the 62nd minute.

Iborra and Mariano both had shots saved as Ezequiel Ponce shot off target late on, but with Sevilla still very much in control, there was only ever going to be one winner in this match.
