Sevilla climbed up to third after bouncing back from last weekend’s 4-2 defeat at Barca with a 2-1 home win over last-placed Huesca.

Pablo Sarabia, who also netted in Thursday’s 6-0 Europa League mauling of Akhisarspor, stuck in the 65th and 78th minutes before Huesca grabbed a late consolation through Jorge Pulido.

In Sunday’s other match, Getafe beat Real Betis 2-0 thanks to two goals in three second-half minutes from Jorge Molina and Dimitri Foulquier.
