Sevilla continues with its European plenary after settling with a triumph the process against the Qarabag. After a horrendous first half, with no rhythm and more typical of a summer bolus than a European meeting, Bryan Gil’s entry into the field changed the game and paved the way for victory.
Lopetegui lined up an eleven as unusual as offensive, but met the maxim that it is not better attacked by more fronts piling up on the lawn. The Rony Lopes, Dabbur, Munir and Chicharito found no a gap in the far-defensive approach of the Qarabag. Nor did the lack of speed in the circulation of the ball by a Seville to which the process seemed to be left over from the initial beep. And so, between yawns a first part took place in what most akin to an occasion was a distant foul of Munir that Begovic cleared in corner. It was in the 42nd minute and was the only door throw of a first act worthy of the worst preseason friendlies in which the best was the referee not adding a minute to the mock match being perpetrated in Nervión.
He seemed to come out with more verve the Sevilla of the locker room, something that was confirmed as soon as Lopetegui sat the inconsequential Rony Lopes and gave way to Bryan Gil. Barbate earned him a ball to improve the most expensive signing in the club’s history, simply taking on his par and leaving with quality. He then picked up a loose ball at the edge of the area and his shot ended in goal. The pity for the quarry, who celebrated him like a madman, is that he went up to Dabbur’s account since the Israeli deflected the shot to the bottom of Begovic’s nets.
The Qarabag wanted to move the tree when it was removed from the competition and peeked into the Bono area, more for the inesthelist relaxation than on its own merits. However, the approaches ended in nothing and the match ended up feeling Dabbur’s goal at the discount. Process solved and 570,000 euros more for the Nervous coffers.
Lopetegui: “We had a hard time bending this good team”
Julen Lopetegui, technician Seville, assessed the keys to his team’s triumph over Qarabag in the Europa League: “The main objective was achieved but we had to face the match with the highest concentration. We had a hard time bending this good team, but in the second half we were superior and clearly deserved to take this game.”
On the performance of the secondary: “There are players with fewer minutes who had already played a lot. We call it template management and quarryers like Mena were also able to intervene.”
Asked about the retirement of Ocampos in League: “The goal was to win the match, you will see who can replace in League to Ocampos”.
You look at the last match of this group stage: “We will try to face the match as much as possible and try to take the points as we always do.”
