Kevin Gameiro scored a brace as Sevilla twice came from behind to secure a 2-2 draw against 10-man Malaga in a Spanish La Liga match played at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium on Sunday evening.

Pedro Morales and Roque Santa Cruz found the back of the net for Malaga on the night while Duda saw red for the visitors.

The home side made three changes that played to a goalless draw in their game against Levante last week, while Malaga only made one change to the side that lost to Barcelona.

Both teams threatened early on with Carlos Bacca notably rattling the post following a mix-up between Caballero and Antunes inside the Malaga box.

The breakthrough finally came in the 39th through Pedro Morales. The midfielder finished off a superb counter-attack with a fierce effort from 20 yards out to give the away side the lead.

Kevin Gameiro quickly levelled matter for the hosts two minutes later. The Frenchman nodded home a Stephane Mbia cross ensuring that the two teams head into the break all square.

Roque Santa Cruz restored the Los Boquerones lead in the 67th minute of the encounter. The former Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City striker slotted the ball into the back of the net following a superb pass from Segi Darder.

Gameiro yet again levelled matters on the night, this time three minutes after their counterparts took the lead. The former Paris Saint-Germain hit man’s header looped into the back of the net despite desperate attempts from Caballero.

Dudu received a straight red in second half stoppage time but Malaga held on to claim a point.
