Montella views win at Atletico as turning point for Sevilla

MADRID (AP) Vincenzo Montella is certain Sevilla has picked up the victory it needed to turn its fate around in the Spanish league.

The coach said the 2-1 come-from-behind win at Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey quarterfinals on Wednesday will help Sevilla get back on track and end its league slump.

Montella, an Italian hired during the winter break, is desperate for his team to end a five-game winless streak that has dropped the club to sixth place, outside of qualifying for the Champions League.
