Lopetegui: “You have to know how to compete when things go wrong”
The Sevilla coach regretted the wasted chances and gave his own a little slap on the wrist
Sevilla’s coach, Julen Lopetegui, he left very dissatisfied with the performance of his players in the second half. In the first they made their best minutes away from home and the Andalusian team wasted many occasions. In the second, after the expulsion of Diego Carlos, Sevilla collapsed. “You have to know how to compete when things go wrong and be able to take responsibility for reaching the end in whatever way. Today everything has been turned against. The first half was very good, but saying this with a 4-0 is difficult, “he explained.
“It is a harsh punishment, a resounding result. You analyze the game and it has nothing to do with what it was. We had a great first half, one of the best of the season, with up to seven chances to score and in the end if you don’t score, you can concede before or after. The second was very rough, the first goal was avoidable. Then came the expulsion, “he added.
“We had to try to draw or win, but we couldn’t make the mistake of letting them dial soon. With the offensive quality that they have and their speed, it makes everything more difficult, more so with the expulsion. ”
“We like get the Champions with five days to go, the rest is secondary. We are going to face the last game with the illusion of finishing well and having a good football game, although they are not going to play anything either. We will try to get the three points, which is what we want“.
