Luis Fabiano’s looping header and a Mario Alvarez own goal gave Sevilla a 2-0 win over Getafe in their King's Cup semi-final first-leg on Wednesday. Getafe, who lost to Sevilla in the 2007 final, started the match brightly at a rain-lashed Sanchez Pizjuan.

Striker Manu del Moral twice went close but was denied first by home goalkeeper Andres Palop and then by a well-timed challenge from Adriano Correia.

The visitors were finding it all too easy to control possession and Sevilla coach Manolo Jimenez replaced striker Alvaro Negredo with midfielder Ndri Romaric just after the half hour.

Despite the complaints of the home fans, the change appeared to have the desired effect.
