They are now unbeaten in 10 matches, with Diego Carlos’s goal handing them the three points.

“We can’t kid ourselves, we need to improve a lot. We should have tried to keep playing attractive football and we would have created more chances, but sometimes you play badly and win and play well but you lose,” said Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui.

“Things got very tough for us in the second half, we made mistakes and lost control, and after we scored we couldn’t stay calm. We didn’t want to end the game playing as we did but sometimes it’s what you have to do.”

Leganes, doing well under Javier Aguirre despite not gaining points, are eight from safety.

“The team pushed until the end, we tried, what a pity,” said Leganes midfielder Recio.

“We played the game we wanted to. They didn’t have any more chances, the result is a shame.

“I think the team deserved to take at least one point here.”
