The day that Ever Banega is missing, and for that there is very little, something important will be missing in this Seville that is already savoring the classification for the next Champions . The Argentine has chosen the temptation of Saudi money to prolong his career, an understandable but painful decision, as one of his great talents in recent years will lose the League. Unreadable at times, controversial as many, few midfielders have seen Spanish football with its ability to change games with its elegance and silent leadership. [1-2: Narration and Statistics]
The game of San Mamés was put in Chinese to Sevilla, with a very early goal by Capa that short-circuited everything, since Athletic seemed at the mercy of the visitor. But little by little, with stealth but with determination, Banega was claiming the baton until obtaining, with a goal from a foul and an assist to Munir, the three points that those of Lopetegui had gone to look for in Bilbao. And Athletic remained dry and unanswered, regretting that perhaps their European options have passed to a better life. Real Sociedad-Granada this Friday will give you clues as to whether you still have solid hopes of taking flight.
He made the whole of Seville in the 'Cathedral'. No team, not even Madrid or Barça , had submitted as much to Athletic as Sevilla did during the first minutes of the match. It was very easy for those from Lopetegui to settle in the opposite field and at times it seemed that the locals were not too uncomfortable on stage. Garitano had already advanced him in a certain way with the chosen lineup, especially with midfield. And, at the end of the day, Sevilla had no other chance than a deflected shot by Suso after an internship by Navas on his wing.
Athletic was much more concerned with Yuri's injury in the 25th minute. The curious thing is that Garitano's team did well with that small break and gained ground in the subsequent moments until they were ahead on the scoreboard. An attempt to pass by Vesga hit Koundé and the rejection was left open for Capa to burst the ball without Bono doing anything . Nor did Sevilla see him coming, who from then on regretted having had the ball so much without knowing what to do with it. Quite the opposite of what happened to Athletic, who only took the ball to get ahead on the scoreboard.
It could be even worse for Sevilla, as Muniain missed a gift from Koundé at the edge of the break. He saw it so clearly and was so unexpected at the same time that the rojiblanco captain did not know how to solve it properly. Something similar to what happened to Reguilón, already in the second half, after a shot by Suso in which Simón left the ball dead, perfect for the winger to finish the job. Reguilón slipped and Simón breathed.
Sevilla spurred that occasion, which from then on regained control of the game, but this time it did, creating danger and giving the feeling that they could tie the game. Ocampos had it, with a point-blank shot in the area, but Simón once again wore his duende that, unfortunately for Athletic, sold out on that play. Because a few minutes later, Banega tied the game for a direct free kick , a shot in which the Athletic goalkeeper stood still. He was able to do something else.
The game changed 20 minutes from the end and Sevilla grew. So much so that after five minutes his comeback ended. Munir did it, just entered the field, taking advantage of a center from Banega. Too much was only the Spanish-Moroccan, decisive in this final stretch of the season for those of Lopetegui. Athletic vanished and Sevilla could finally begin to boast of their usual solidity. Aside from a Muniain shot, the Andalusian team no longer feared for a victory that sealed him half a passport for the next Champions League.
