Real Madrid have gone top of La Liga thanks to a 1-0 win over Real Betis away from home on Saturday.
Los Blancos were finding life tough in Sevilla until right-back Dani Carvajal strode forward to smack an angled volley into the corner of the goal.
It puts them on seven points for the season, marginally ahead of Sevilla and Valencia in terms of goals scored, as well as Mallorca on goal difference.
Sevilla, meanwhile, lost their perfect start to the season as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Elche away from home. Jules Kounde missed that match as he continues to be linked with Chelsea.
Valencia, meanwhile, swept past Alaves 3-0 on Friday evening.
The other main title contenders play on Sunday. Firstly, Barcelona host Getafe at Camp Nou when Atletico Madrid face a massive match late in the day against Villarreal.
Diego Simeone’s side are the only team remaining with a perfect record this term.
