Sevilla – Athletic: Nobody fails
The Nervionenses cannot play after the victories of the Real Madrid, the Atlético de Madrid and the Barcelona this day; Bilbaoans rush their few European options
Lor say Lopetegui: “Illusion is the predominant word”. Delusion, nothing to lose and much to gain in a final stretch of League which may be historical for him Seville. Being in the cream of teams that fight for the title is something that does not happen every day and Sevilla fans enjoy the experience. What if…? The streak is unbeatable: 22 points from the last 24 disputed. But those above do not loosen. This journey have won Real Madrid, Atlético de Madrid Y Barcelona, and tonight it is the turn of Marcelino and his Athletic.
Although the european options of Bilbao set They are almost nil after the draw against him Valladolid, the Athletic have two great incentives ahead of your visit to Seville. On the one hand, it is to maximize your chances of playing in Europe next season, maintaining the discourse that you have to fight until the math says otherwise. The other incentive is to be a judge again in the fight for the League. The lions already know what it is to participate directly in that fight, since defeated Atlético to tighten the head of the table even more. Now they are faced with the opportunity to give a new blow, defeating another of the applicants.
Some players drag annoyances in the Seville, something common in recent weeks due to intense calendar. The most commented case is that of Jules Koundé. The French has not been able to train normally Y Lopetegui will decide this morning. It is one of the three warned of Seville, all in the defending. Navas Y Acuna join Kooundé with the visit to Real Madrid just around the corner. But Julen it will go with everything.
Marcelino still can’t count on Muniain Y Yuri, but recovers Victor after his sanction for card accumulation yellow In recent meetings, the Asturian has bet on young people What Black pudding or Sancet and they have responded. They could repeat. For the rest, the Yeray’s return the axis of the defense can be the main novelty in an alignment that will not vary excessively with respect to the view in the last game of League, since the performance of those who acted in the tie against the Valladolid it wasn’t bad.
