Europe, common goal

Sevilla ends the Spanish competition looking at Roma in the Europa League. Valencia have to win as they can still finish in the top seven.


When a little over a year ago the draw for the LaLiga calendar provided a Sevilla-Valencia to end the season, few would have bet that the duel would be settled in the current circumstances (follow the game live on Of course because of the peculiarity of this post-pandemic end of year, but also because of how the contenders arrive: one with the homework done and spilling illusion and the other rushing their European options and in the midst of internal war, with the need to win and hope that they do not win Getafe and / or that I did not score at least the Real Sociedad in the Wanda Metropolitano.

Nobody could think that the Seville of the reconstruction of Monchi was going to be so far above the Valencia champion of the Marcelino Cup. However, while in Nervión ranks were closed around the sports director and his project, in Valencia a formula that was believed to be indestructible was dynamited from within. And the result is that Sevilla face the last day with the Champions secured and their sights set on the Europa League tie against Roma, while Valencia does not even depend on itself to reach that competition.

Differences. The Seville accounts, if you want to be third, go through winning and that Atlético lose or thrashing by five points difference and that the mattress makers tie. However, in Nervión everyone looks at Europe in search of their sixth title in a competition to which Valencia also aspires, but in a very different way. Lopetegui cannot count on his brain Éver Banega, sanctioned, and it is possible that he rotates because there is too much mess ahead and he does not want any pillar to be at risk of injury. Voro will have to improvise on the left side, where he does not have Gayà or Jaume Costa.
