Real Betis 1-2 Sevilla

Argentina defender Mercado’s equaliser came after Durmisi’s first-half free-kick put the hosts ahead

Sevilla came from behind to beat Real Betis in their local derby and move level with La Liga leaders Real Madrid.

Betis left-back Riza Durmisi opened the scoring with a first-half free-kick, before Gabriel Mercado levelled from close range after the break.

Vicente Iborra stabbed home the winner with 14 minutes to play after Steven N’Zonzi flicked on Samir Nasri’s free-kick from what appeared to be an offside position.

Madrid play on Sunday, as do Barcelona.

Zinedine Zidane’s side play at Villarreal in a 19:45 GMT kick-off, and Barca, who now drop to third, travel to Atletico Madrid for a 15:15 kick-off.

In the earlier game on Saturday, Alaves came from behind to beat Valencia 2-1 at home.

Alaves, who play Barca in the Copa del Rey final on 26 May, move up to 10th, while Valencia, who beat Real Madrid 2-1 on Wednesday, stay 14th.

Elsewhere, Leganes leapfrogged Deportivo La Coruna into 16th with a 4-0 home victory, while seventh-placed Eibar continued their excellent season with a 3-0 win at home to Malaga, who stay in 13th.
