The aspirant Sevilla does not give up, but goes back to prick the hunt for Real Madrid and if the white team beats Elche this Sunday, they will put six points in between in the lead. In a fast-paced match, a rush of fury served the Nervionenses to save at least the draw against a Celta who got two goals ahead and he did not know how to kill the counterattack despite the umpteenth exhibition of Iago Aspas, a headache constant for Diego Carlos and company.
Coudet repeated on eleven, with Beltrán, Aidoo and Araujo, which has given it the necessary balance to look towards Europe. He debuted in Sevilla as a starter and with flashes of high quality the Tecatito Corona. It was more of a necessity than a luxury, because only 14 professional soccer players were part of the squad for Sánchez-Pizjuán’s team, full of kids. 11 casualties and also that of the coach himself, Julen Lopetegui, who had to be replaced in the band by his second Pablo Sanz.
Sanz precisely warned in the preview that Celta penalized turnovers like almost no one else. A few words that served as a dark omen for his team. Two errors by Acuña and Ocampos on the left in two minutes, two sky-blue goals. In the first Brais opened for Mina, Dmitrovic parried the striker’s shot and Cervi, at the far post, opened the scoring (0-1, 37′). No time for much more Aspas culminated another counterattack with genius, from the edge of the area (0-2, 39′).
Sevilla was entrusted to the heroic and Lopetegui team agitated in telephone connection. a triple change (Oliver Torres-Papu Gómez-Iván Romero) at the beginning of the second half that ended up being crucial. Papu reduced distances from outside the area (1-2, 71′) and Oliver tied (2-2, 74′) with time for everything yet, in a play in which Celta called Iván Romero offside, precisely. Óliver himself headed to the base of the post while Aspas also threatened with a goal for the light blue victory, but the scoreboard would not move again.
