Sevilla comes back to beat Mallorca

Sevilla twice came from behind to beat Mallorca 3-2 in the Spanish league on Monday following Cicinho’s late winning goal from a volley.

Cicinho scored in the 75th minute to extend Sevilla’s strong start in the league after Alvaro Negredo’s two goals had twice drawn his team level.

Negredo responded to Pedro Bigas’ 26th-minute opener at the Sanchez Pizjuan by finding the net three minutes later. Tomer Hemed put the visitors in front again in the 30th, however.

Cicinho burst forward in the 56th before crossing for Negredo to head in the equalizer, and the Brazilian later capped the comeback.

Sevilla joins Real Madrid on 14 points, eight behind co-leaders Barcelona and Atletico Madrid after eight rounds.
