Tango in Elche without Koundé

The center-back is left out of Sevilla's list because his departure to Chelsea is hot. Benedetto and Lamela, under the spotlight.


Jules Koundé did not get on the plane that took Sevilla to Elche. The center-back finalizes his transfer to Chelsea and stayed at home. The defender, with a foot and a half outside the Pizjuán and pending the latest offer from the current king of Europe, was the great absence of Lopetegui's expedition, who has already begun to get an idea of what life will be like without Jules. From the sofa and waiting for the phone, Koundé will see this afternoon the tango that is planned at the Martínez Valero (follow the game live on As.com) .

Elche-Sevilla has an Argentine accent because its two fashionable men have Albiceleste blood. Benedetto points to Escribá's eleven for the first time and will debut before his people, the one who has received him like a star and who has all his faith in his goals. Darío's opponent in the tango contest will be Erik Lamela. The Sevilla player has fallen on his feet. He alone has been able to monopolize all the flashes with an immaculate start. Lamela lands at Martínez Valero as top scorer, with three goals in the bag and with the sweet taste in his mouth that his goal in Getafe left in Seville. A bit agonizing that catapulted the Spanish team to the top of the table and that will help them to start today for the first time.

Escribá could only introduce a change in the eleven with respect to the team that stood up to Atlético. Benedetto instead of Pere Milla and little else. Despite his serious mistake in the Metropolitan, Kiko Casilla points to the franjiverde goal again. Omar Mascarell, the last to join the project, will wait at the bank.

Lopetegui, now without Koundé, will have to modify his defense axis and that will alter his plan because the Frenchman is a wall with resources. To cover the hole, Rekik is emerging as Diego Carlos' partner. Just in case, Lopetegui reserves dynamite on the bench with Papu, Mir and company.
