Sevilla loses 2-1 to Leganes in Spanish league

MADRID (AP) Sevilla lost 2-1 to Leganes in the Spanish league on Sunday, putting at risk its chances of securing a Europa League spot.

The loss in southern Madrid could drop Sevilla from fifth to seventh in the standings, the last qualification spot for the second-tier European competition. It has 45 points, one more than Villarreal and two more than Girona, which play later Sunday. Villarreal hosts Atletico Madrid, while Girona plays at Real Madrid.

Sevilla's recent struggles in the league already left it virtually out of contention for a Champions League spot. It trails fourth-place Madrid by 12 points.
