Sevilla climbed to the top of the league on Sunday after defeating Alaves 1-0 away from home.
Spanish midfielder Joan Jordan scored the only goal of the match in the 37th minute, sending a free-kick into the top corner.
Mexican striker Javier Hernandez debuted with Sevilla when he came off the bench in the second half, but Alaves finished the game with more strength and wasted two chances to equal the result at the last minute.
The victory brought Julen Lopetegui’s team, former Spain and Real Madrid coach, to the top of the standings after four matches with 10 points, one more than Atletico Madrid, who were defeated 2-0 at Real Sociedad on Sunday.
