Bono penalty save takes Sevilla fourth in La Liga

Sevilla FC goalkeeper Bono rescued his side with a 91st-minute penalty save to earn a 2-1 win away to Alaves on Tuesday, taking his side up to fourth in La Liga.

The Moroccan guessed the right way and dived to the bottom corner to palm away and then gather a spot-kick from Alaves striker Joselu after Sevilla defender Jules Kounde had been penalised for handling the ball.

Sevilla had taken an early lead in the third minute through striker Youssef En-Nesyri but Edgar Mendez levelled in the 12th for Alaves, who were playing their first league game since Abelardo Fernandez returned as coach to succeed Pablo Machin.

Julen Lopetegui's side restored their lead on the half-hour mark through a scorching strike from midfielder Suso while they looked to have added a third late in the second half when the ball went in off Alaves's Ximo Navarro for an own goal but the strike was ruled out for an earlier handball.
