Geijo: Struck for Granada
Sevilla suffered their first defeat of the season as Granada came from behind to win 2-1 and climb off the bottom of the Primera Liga standings.
Sevilla had the opportunity to close to within a point of fourth-placed Valencia and seemed to be in control for most of Monday night's match, before conceding two late goals in a dramatic finale.
Manu del Moral struck in the second minute at the Sanchez Pizjuan but Granada's battling for an equaliser was rewarded 10 minutes from time when Swiss forward Alex Geijo nodded home the rebound after Nigerian Ighalo had smashed a shot against the crossbar.
Sevilla had chances for a winner before Granada midfielder Mikel Rico pounced in the 90th minute to secure the three points.
The result leaves Sevilla fifth in the standings, while Granada move above Getafe at the foot of the table and level on points with three other teams.
Real Madrid lead on 25 points, champions Barcelona, who are now the only side not to have been beaten this term, are second on 24 and surprise package Levante are third on 23.
