The Seville drew a draw from his visit to Lille in the modern Pierre-Mauroy that allows him to maintain his second place in group G, but that forces him to add three points on the next day if he does not want to complicate his move to the knockout stages of the Champions League precisely against him again. French champion at the Sánchez Pizjuán. The triumph of Salzburg in front of Wolfsburg in the other party of the group allows those of Lopetegui not to get off the hook despite accumulating only three points as a result of three draws and not yet knowing the victory, although neither the defeat.
The Andalusians went from more to less, although they controlled well a dangerous rival who is not going through a good time, but who has very fast attacking players who had become the former coach’s main concern.
The Seville, without Kooundé (even though he traveled) and without En-Nesyri In the eleven, he practiced a more cheerful football from the beginning than he had been showing in recent games, which had provoked criticism from Lopetegui of a part of the fans or, at least, a debate before which Monchi himself had to step out.
But in LillePerhaps aware of what was at stake, the Andalusians came out determined to hit the table and debut at once in this edition of the Champions League. Suso and Ocampos they remembered the Seville of the good times and insistently tested Grbic, who saw up to six serious attempts from his rival up close. The clearest could be one caused by himself in a failure in delivery when kicking out of the door. Rafa mir, with the goal beaten, he smashed the ball into the body of Leave it, which avoided the 0-1.
The Seville behind that was about to take advantage of the Lille. A bad delivery from Acuña left Renato Sanches, but this one threw the body of Bond, which saved the situation in extremis.
Rekik also breaks
The second half started with trouble Lopetegui, because physical problems were appearing in an already depleted squad. Rekik, substitute for Kooundé, broke shortly after the restart, which the Basque coach solved by delaying Ferdinand and putting in the field Joan Jordan. Shortly after it was Acuna the one who suffered from annoyances that already gave him problems with Argentina and the Swede appeared Augustinsson instead.
A Chilean attempt to Ocampos It was the best occasion of the Seville in a second half in which he lost steam and in which he was protecting himself from the inside against the speed of the French contras. The Lille asked for a penalty in a hand of Delaney who also seemed out of the area, in almost the only scare for a Seville that I would also have it in a loose auction of Lamella, which had left for Ocampos.
The Seville he is still alive in his group, but he needs, but already, a victory.
