The other 'final' played by Lucas Ocampos and Alexis Sánchez

The attackers of Sevilla and Inter rush deadlines to get to the game on Friday. They both hope to play in Cologne, even if it has to be in pain.


There are finals parallel to the big one, the real one, which will be played by Sevilla and Inter for the Europa League title in Cologne on Friday. One of them is played by the Argentine Lucas Ocampos and the Chilean Alexis Sánchez, who in the previous days have suffered physical problems against those who are fighting these days because they do not want to miss the decisive match. Ocampos played against United with knee problems that forced Lopetegui to change him many minutes before the end. After being injured against Leverkusen, Alexis was left on the bench against Shakhtar with muscle problems.

Ocampos has trained at a basically normal pace this week after the semi-final, although he is still experiencing some kind of pain. The winger hopes that the discomfort will subside, but he does not want to miss it in any way and Lopetegui can count on him if he sees fit and considers that his top scorer, 17 goals this season in all competitions, cannot be left out of the eleven in the match most important of the year, the one that would allow lifting a title.

After a few days alone, Alexis also exercised this Tuesday with his teammates for most of the time. The cameras in Dusseldorf captured the Chilean training with the ball and smiling, oblivious to any physical problem. Alexis has just been acquired by Inter from Manchester United after a more than remarkable final stretch of Serie A, with three goals and eight assists during the last 12 games of the Calcium.
