Leganes dent Sevilla's Champions League dream



Leganes dented Sevilla's bid to qualify for next season's Champions League with an emphatic 3-0 away win on Friday in La Liga.

Victory at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan ensured the visitors are safe from relegation while helping Getafe, fourth, and Valencia, sixth, in their bid to finish in the top four ahead of fifth-place Sevilla.

Leganes broke the deadlock after eight minutes when Youssef En-Nesyri scooped an effort into the top corner from just inside the box.

Denmark international Martin Braithwaite doubled the visitors' lead after Sevilla failed to clear a long throw in the box.

Leganes nearly scored again straight after halftime, with goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik making a good save to deny Juanfran.

With Sevilla struggling badly, Leganes wrapped up their impressive triumph when Braithwaite teed up Oscar Rodriguez for the third
