SEVILLE, Spain (AP) -Sevilla earned a comfortable 3-0 home win against Granada in the Spanish league on Monday thanks to goals by Geoffrey Kondogbia, Alvaro Negredo and Gary Medel.

The win lifts new coach Unai Emery's team to 11th place in the standings on 26 points.

Kondogbia scored when he headed in a corner kick in the 32nd minute, and had an appeal for a penalty waved off when he was cut down by Granada central defender Diego Mainz in the six-yard box two minutes later.

Negredo made it 2-2 for Sevilla when he leapt up high to athletically head down a cross by Ivan Rakitic in the 70th.

Five minutes later, Medel chested down Negredo's forward pass and hit a right-footed shot into the net.
