2-0 Negredo 38' (pen.)
2-1 Alexis 50'
Getafe fell to a 2-1 defeat at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán on La Liga's opening day.
Hosts Sevilla dominated early proceedings and took the lead through Federico Fazio in the 34th minute, the Argentine taking advantage of a misjudged clearance job from Miguel Ángel Moyà and heading into an unguarded net.
Four minutes later Juan Valera conceded a controversial penalty, José Antonio Reyes making the most of an innocuous challenge to earn the spot-kick. Álvaro Negredo converted easily to double Sevilla's advantage.
Just after the restart, former Sevilla defender Alexis Ruano pilled one back for the visitors with a close-range finish from a Pedro León corner.
Getafe coach Luís García threw on Abdel Barrada and Adrián Colunga in an attempt to chase the game, but ultimately Sevilla saw out the game in relative comfort.
Geta welcome champions Real Madrid next weekend in their home opener.
