Sevilla maintains a streak that fuels their European options

Sevilla maintains its good streak with a win (0-2) in Ipurua against Eibar that fuels its European options to play the Champions League. The Hispanics took the lead in the first half after a penalty goal from Ocampos, which the referee conceded after reviewing the play on the VAR monitor. After the break they sentenced the duel with a second goal in a second half in which they began to think about Tuesday's cupbearer duel in Almería.

The Gipuzkoans, who were looking for their second home win to get away from the relegation places, started well, although they lacked success in the auction and luck in the first half, while their performance fell after the 0-2 of former Barça player Joan Jordán . The local Dmitrovic, and the visitors Acuña and Jesús Navas withdrew injured, the most negative of a game that started with rain and ended with a sun that smiled at the Sevilla fans.

The team coached by José Luis Mendilibar, who lined up a 4-4-2 with 2 forwards, a more offensive tactical system than the 4-1-4-1 he had used in the two previous games, sought victory from the beginning, playing with a lot of rhythm and pressing the opponent up Thus, a center from Arbilla walked through the Sevilla area, while a header from the Japanese Yoshinori Muto (a pass from Bryan Gil) went out in quick action. But in a foul that could have been non-existent (Pape Diop touched the ball) to En-Nesyri the referee signaled a penalty from goalkeeper Dmitrovic, who deflected the ball before colliding with the Moroccan striker, who was knocked down in the area. But after the referee personally reviewed the play on the VAR monitor, he annulled his initial decision.

The video-arbitration also intervened in another action shortly afterwards in which Pedro Bigas kicked En-Nesyri and the referee, who saw the play on the VAR monitor minutes after it occurred, called a maximum penalty that Lucas Ocampos transformed at 0-1. The goal (after a defensive error by Bigas) encouraged the Hispanics, who improved against an Eibar who did not give up. In this way, again Bryan Gil, Barça footballer on loan from Sevilla and the best of the game, created danger again with his centers from the left wing. Pape Diop, a pass from Bryan Gil, had the equalizer in his boots, but the African's shot went high. Again, he was poorly aimed.

He was also able to achieve the equalizer Kike García, but his shot was repelled by Bono. Bad luck hurt Eibar, as after a good header by Kike García from a foul by Edu Expósito, the ball was repelled by the post. Sevilla, who were winning undeservedly due to the greater local merits, also tried to increase their income, and a shot from Suso was stopped by Dmitrovic.

The second half started like the first, with a chance from Paulo Oliveira, who finished off a free-kick. Pape Diop also tried from the front of the area, but his low shot was stopped by Bono. However, the one who scored was the former Barça player Joan Jordán, who achieved the 0-2 pass from Aleix Vidal in a quick play that began with a steal by Ocampos and was followed by Oliver Torres. It was the first Sevilla arrival and Joan Jordán put the game on track for the Andalusians. Curiously, the Ipurua siren sounded by mistake, because it only works when Eibar scores. To add insult to injury for the Gipuzkoans, goalkeeper Dmitrovic was injured, who was replaced by Yoel. However, the Eibar did not throw in the towel, and Bryan Gil shot with his right leg 'the bad one' and the ball licked the post.

Sevilla tried to 'anesthetize' the match, already thinking about their duel on Tuesday in the Almería fiefdom in Copa del Rey, while the locals accused the two goals against. Ocampos was able to increase the rent, but his strong shot from the front was high (in another later action Yoel stopped). Pedro León could also score (his shot was cleared by Bono) after a good individual play by Bryan Gil. Eibar kept trying until the end, and in the discount a shot by Kike García was cleared by Bono.
