Valencia stuns Seville and provides a service to Real Madrid

Valencia prevented its guest Sevilla from tightening the screws on leaders Real Madrid when they forced them to a 1-1 draw yesterday in the twenty-first stage of the Spanish Football League.

Valencia received an early painful blow when Dutch international goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen was injured in the 18th minute, leaving his place for Jaume Domenech.

And the Andalusian team was Yemeni in compensating for the disappointment of its empty-handed exit from the local cup competition by losing to its neighbor Real Betis 1-2 in the final price, and achieving its third victory in a row and fourteenth in the league to reduce the difference between it and the royal club to two points, but it was satisfied with one point, so the difference between them became Four points.

On the other hand, Valencia climbed to ninth place with 29 points, after achieving the eighth draw this season, which came after two consecutive losses against its guest Espanyol 1-2 and its host Real Madrid 1-4.
