Javi Fuego and Reyes respond against Betis
But incredibly, Javi Fuego volleyed home a loose ball to level it up with four minutes to go and three minutes later, Reyes shimmied past Rubén Pardo then beat Adán with a blistering strike into the top corner to send Cornellà wild.
“Sevilla will have enjoyed that, so it was for them too". Reyes said of this third league goal this season. "The end of the game suddenly became very complicated for us but we reacted. We didn't let our heads drop, we took the game up a level and even after equalizing, we wanted more and went for it".
