A Kevin Gameiro hat trick helped Sevilla to a convincing 5-0 win over Getafe at the Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday night, their third in four games in La Liga.
In a game dominated by the hosts, the Frenchman showed fine reactions to prod home the game’s opening goal on the rebound after Getafe keeper Vicente Guaita had palmed away Ever Banega’s dipping effort from distance.
The ex-PSG man soon had his second ten minutes later collecting Banega’s clever quick free-kick to fire high into the roof of the visitors’ net and send his side into the break with a commanding 2-0 advantage.
Two became three moments after the break as Yevhen Konoplyanka was hauled down in the Getafe box by Carlos Martin Vigaray, earning his first of two yellow cards on the night, to give Banega the chance to coolly convert from the spot with 40 minutes still on the clock.
Vigaray was guilty of clumsy defending once again on the hour mark as the Spaniard felled Gameiro to concede his second spot kick of the evening, allowing the Frenchman completing his treble from the resulting penalty.
Remarkably, to round off a profitable encounter in the south of Spain for Juve’s Group D rivals, Konoplyanka slotted home his side’s third and final opportunity from 12 yards to lift the Andalusians up to ninth in the table.
