Incombustible Navas: its best version glimpses the Eurocup

The palace was decisive in the victory against Atlético with another master class from his right side. He is Sevilla's top assistant in this league.


Jesús Navas was once again a whirlwind against Atlético de Madrid. His alliance with Marcos Acuña in the lead to victory reflected that his best level is back. He climbed again and again on his right wing and recovered the sensations that he had left parked in numerous games this season due to the sum of minutes and the appearance of physical discomfort. It was not his most regular course in that regard, but his performance was again brilliant in Sunday's appointment and his intention is clear: to gain a place in Luis Enrique's plans for the next European Championship.

The palace signed his sixth assist of the season. No player on the Sevilla squad adds more than in this League. And their historical numbers also take a thread of continuity that seems to have no end: 82 decisive passes in the First Division. At 35 years old, Navas wants more and this is what he reflects with a total role in Nervión. From the corner of his eye, he looks at Luis Enrique, who did not call him in his last call despite being one of his favorite assets for that right lane of the Spanish team. But that absence also gave oxygen to the youth squad, who intends to show his best version of the game in this final stretch of the championship.

Navas' contract marks its end in this summer of 2021. But that reality does not seem too important for the player and the club, both of whom know that the connection between them is total and there is no differentiated desire in the search for a future together. Lopetegui tries to take care of his minutes as much as possible while giving him a freedom on the grass that increases when his drawing is modified throughout a game. This variable scenario is perfect for the palace, which is a lethal weapon in attack and also a guarantee of reliability in defense.
