MADRID, 24 May. (EUROPA PRESS) –
A great goal from the young Paraguayan striker Julio Enciso served Brighton & Hove Albion this Wednesday to draw against Manchester City (1-1) in a match corresponding to the 32nd day of the Premier League, where the ‘citizens’ are already champions and for This sets the FA Cup finals on their horizon and especially the Champions League.
At the Amex Stadium, Phil Foden put the visitors ahead in the 25th minute after some good play by his teammate Erling Haaland, who had run clear of his markers, beating the rival central defenders. The Norwegian did not find a loophole to beat the goalkeeper, outside the goal, but he did see Foden; and this one, with a low shot, made it 0-1.
In the 38th minute Enciso’s shot came with his right foot, far away and direct to the squad to establish the 1-1. Already in the second half, at minute 79, Haaland’s goal was disallowed due to a previous foul in his shot, so the scoreboard no longer moved. In this way, City stayed at the top of the Premier with 89 points.
For its part, Brighton reached 62 points to show off its sixth position, which gives it a ticket to the Europa League. With just one day to go until the league conclusion, the ‘seagulls’ will no longer move from there because they cannot hunt Liverpool (66 points) nor can they fall to seventh place that Aston Villa now has with 58 points.
