Real Betis stormed back to secure a 3-3 draw against 10-man Sevilla in a wild Seville derby on Friday, with Emmanuel Igiebor Nosa completing the comeback in the 89th minute.

Sevilla started strong and was on course to repeating its 5-1 rout from the rivals' first meeting earlier this season.

Midfielder Ivan Rakitic struck for Sevilla in the seventh minute and the 19th before Alvaro Negredo made it 3-0 in the 33rd.

Dorlan Pabon gave Betis life two minutes before halftime, and Ruben Castro netted a spot kick in the 53rd after Sevilla's Federico Fazio fouled Jorge Molina in the area.

Gary Medel was shown a red card two minutes later for a scuffle with a Betis player.

Sevilla resisted until Nosa headed in Pabon's cross just before the finish.
