Sevilla is now only two points behind fourth-place Levante, which is in the last Champions League position.

Fazio scored Sevilla’s 32nd-minute opener before Moral, a former Getafe forward, doubled the lead in the 50th. Kanoute capped the win in stoppage time with a well-placed shot into the right corner of the net.

Getafe, which had won in its previous three league visits to Sanchez Pizjuan stadium, has yet to win away from home this season and is one point above the relegation zone.
