Seville, Getafe and Espanyol lived the fifth round of the Europa League in different conditions. In the absence of an appointment, all three are in a condition they would have signed in August. Lopetegui and Machín can breathe relieved, as they will be first of the bunch no matter what happens on the last date. The set of Bordalás, despite winning, will be played for the whole with the Krasnodar.
The Getafe, thanks to a great goal by Jaime Mata, has been reborn from his ashes and has placed himself with nine points in his locker. However, Krasnodar’s home triumph against Basel still leaves him all pending. Luckily for the Bordalás team, you will live the peace of mind of playing in front of your crowd at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez. Then, there may be three assumptions:
–If the Getafe beats the Krasnodar will be classified. The first place will depend on what Basel does as a home against Trabzonspor. If you draw, the ‘Geta’ will come first. If he loses, too. If he wins, it will be the Swiss team that has the advantage in the draw.
–If the Getafe ties in front of the Krasnodar, will add ten points in his locker, the same as the Russian team. Then you will achieve the classification, having the favorable goal and even in a triple draw. In that case, Basel will pass first regardless of what it does in its party. In other words: if the Getafe wants to be first it will have to win.
–If the Getafe loses to the Krasnodar he will be eliminated. He’d take nine points and be straight outside.
Espanyol was already qualified in the previous match against Ferencvaros. However, the grand goal of the first place had not yet been closed. He accompanied the outcome of the match between Ludogorets and CSKA Moscow, but Machín’s team still needed to score to tie the lead in the draw. He did so agonizingly, with a goal from Darder in ’96 and after Diego Lopez stopped a penalty. Like this visitors add up to 11 points in their locker, four more than the Ludogorets. Faced with the impossibility of being reached in the last appointment, the technician will be able to rotate against CSKA and focus on turning the complicated situation around in LaLiga Santander.
Regardless of what happens in the match against Apoel, Sevilla will be in the next phase as first qualifier of Group A. Lopetegui’s team won all four initial matches and that was already enough to consider the fifth and sixth games as friendliness to shoot the less usual footballers. In fact, before the Qarabag, two few regulars as Dabbur And Bryan Gil they scored the goals. It will only have at stake the money that a victory brings in Europe and try to ensure that its key footballers do not suffer weight injuries.
