Spanish Cup 2015

Intense stuff with Espanyol striking first in the 18th min when in form forward Caicedo scored. This was a blow that Sevilla FC did not fully recover from although their young forward Denis Suarez hit the bar in the 29th min. 

Espanyol made things uncomfortable for the visitors cancelling their Football with solid defending & dangerous counter-attacks. It was not long before Espanyol got their second when Sergio Garcia scored in the 74th min delivering the "final knock-out" to Sevilla. The third goal came soon after when Lucas Vazquez put the ball in the net in the 81st min. However, Sevilla managed a "lifesaving" goal in the 91st min that keeps them alive with an important away goal from Bacca.

Espanyol has virtually a foot into the Spanish Cup semis with a very advantageous three goal advantage. It´s an uphill battle for Sevilla FC which will have to pull from heroics to attempt to turn this tie around next week in the 2º leg return match, but they will have the warmth & support of their local followers.

Final result tonight 3 - 1 to RCD Espanyol.
