Sevilla beat Elche 2-0 at home on Wednesday night to move a step closer to Champions League football next season.
Moroccan striker Youssef En-Nesyri gave the hosts the lead against a stubborn Elche side right at the end of the first half, heading home a cross from Suso to score his 15th league goal of the season.
Substitute Franco Vazquez clinched the victory in the 89th minute moments after coming off the bench, producing a delightful backheel to deceive Elche's defence and send the ball trickling over the line to score his first goal all season.
