Espanyol 0-3 Sevilla FC

Sevilla ended a run of five games without a win with a 3-0 victory at Espanyol.
Goals from Franco Vazquez, Pablo Sarabia and Luis Muriel handed coach Vincenzo Montella his first league win in charge of the Andalusian side and brought an end to Espanyol's four-match unbeaten run .
Gerard Moreno fired an effort narrowly wide for the hosts before Sevilla took the lead in the 15th minute.
Joaquin Correa's shot was saved by Espanyol goalkeeper Diego Lopez, but Vazquez was on hand to turn the rebound into the net.
Sevilla began to take control and Sergio Escudero, and Ever Banega forced saves from Lopez before Muriel dragged a shot wide.
And the second goal the visitors had been threatening duly arrived in the 34th minute.
Sarabia picked up the ball down the right and beat two defenders before rifling a shot high beyond the reach of Lopez into the top corner.
Espanyol struggled to get anything going after the break as Sevilla defended solidly and they wrapped up the points in the final minute when Muriel was afforded far to much space down the left and he cut inside past two defenders and drove beyond Lopez.
