Sevilla ended up with a Real team that thought too much about PSG | Football | Sports


In football it is not advisable to think too much about the next game. La Real failed due to a good Sevilla, which focused on PSG, and was affected after the cup exit against Mallorca. Imanol Alguacil's eleven, full of substitutes and youth players, was narrowly beaten by Sevilla, who continued their good trend by taking 11 of the last 18 points in the game. An Andalusian team with Sergio Ramos as leader and two strikers to consider, En-Nesyri and Isaac Romero. The vitality of the last two represented an insurmountable obstacle for the delicate Royalist team, in which players like Le Normand, Kubo, Oyarzabal or Merino did not play a single minute in the Pizjuán. La Real only caused some excitement in extra time when Nyland absorbed a foul from Brais Méndez, making it 3-2 in a clash of Andalusian dominance. The difference was clearly in the attack. While En-Nesyri and Isaac played a high-level game, Sadiq and André Silva, the latter despite his penalty goal, were two shadows. This ended a very negative week for La Real, while Sevilla almost finally moved away from the danger of relegation. The Basques are hoping to overcome a 2-0 defeat against PSG next Tuesday. A very complicated undertaking that Real comes to quite shaken. It is Real's worst since 2020 and has managed just one win in its last nine games (four draws and four losses).

The San Sebastian team has fought on so many fronts that it could lose its main war, which is to return to Europe for the fifth consecutive year. A mission that is undoubtedly not insignificant and requires a lot of effort. But of course, with PSG looming and after a painful cup exit, it seemed normal for Imanol to leave Le Normand, Javi Galán, Merino, Brais, Kubo and Oyarzabal on the bench. An obvious message that Sevilla exploited beautifully. Above all, the great attacking partnership between youth player Isaac Romero and En-Nesyri. The Andalusian club's numbers are low, but Quique is rehabilitating him. And their two strikers pose a threat. Within a quarter of an hour they had scored two goals, both from En-Nesyri, and two more very clear chances. Imanol didn't believe in the band. Real's dry spell seemed to have no end.

With the score at 2-0, Sevilla decided to retreat too intensively, which also increased their numerical inferiority in the midfield. La Real, full of youth players and substitutes, took the ball. The Basques played and played against a rival who fled from the ball. Under these circumstances, sooner or later an error or interruption will occur, which will pay dearly. And disaster struck for Sevilla. Tierney saw André Silva push the ball into the gap for the first time in more than 45 minutes. Sergio Ramos stormed to the crossroads and scored a penalty by hitting the ball with his hand. André Silva himself scored. The Portuguese striker's first goal in the league against his former team, where he played in the 2018/19 season.

La Real didn't have the strength to beat the Andalusian team in the second half. He never exerted authority in his game and focused on excessive ball handling without practical performance. Sevilla had opportunities to end the game on the counterattack, but Sergio Ramos did so with an incredible header. A cross from Óliver Torres was blocked by the central defender in such a way that Remiro made it impossible. It is the Camero's sixth goal of the season. And they still plan to continue in Seville for another year.

As Nervión became a party, Nyland received a foul from Brais in the 92nd minute. There was some excitement in the final part of the game, but Real weren't there to act as heroes either. It's a team mired in a negative trance, with few new ideas and without a staff big enough to take on so many challenges. Tuesday's game in the Champions League is a special category. Seville is now a long way from what Quique slowly repairs with his goldsmith's hand.
