Sevilla were down to 10 men as Frederic Kanoute was sent off for a challenge on Carlos Marchena in the first half. Andres Palop was under siege most of the time as Villa, Silva, Pablo, Mata and Banega swarmed the defense. It was Ever Banega, the moody ex-Boca midfielder that provided the spark for the two Valencia goals. Check out Pablo’s exquisite finish of a Banega pass.
Banega was supposed to go to Everton taking over for the injured Mikel Arteta but I guess that is not happening.
