Ten-man Sevilla have climbed to second in Spain's Primera Liga with a 3-1 comeback win at Deportivo Coruna .

The football side move above Valencia, who were held to a 3-3 draw at home by Villarreal.

Trailing 1-0 and with a man less at the start of the second half, Frederic Kanoute was sent on as a Sevilla substitute and set up Luis Fabiano and then Renato for goals before Diego Capel sealed the win.

Sevilla have 35 points from 18 games and trail runaway leaders Barcelona by nine.

Barca, who have played a game less, visit bottom club Osasuna tomorrow.
