Real Sociedad loses again before facing PSG in Champions League, falling 3-2 at Sevilla

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Real Sociedad lost 3-2 at Sevilla on Saturday as the Basque Country club continued to struggle before it hosts Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Youssef En-Nesyri scored back-to-back goals in the 11th and 13th minutes for Sevilla. After Andre Silva pulled one back from the penalty spot for Sociedad, Sergio Ramos added a third goal for Sevilla with a header in the 65th. Bryce Mendez scored a free kick in stoppage time for the visitors' second goal.

The defeat left Sociedad in seventh place in the Spanish league as it loses touch with the top of the table. Sevilla rose into 14th thanks to one of its best performances in an otherwise poor season.

Sociedad hosts PSG on Tuesday needing to overturn a 2-0 first-leg loss in the round-of-16.
