LaLiga: Osasuna condemns Sevilla to suffering | Sports

Osasuna deservedly won the victory to end their losing streak and condemn Sevilla to continue suffering in the bottom of the table. The Navarrese team took perfect advantage of the state of nerves of a deranged team, which is flan in defense and is unable to control the games. The second goal conceded by Sevilla is the best example of the state of mind of a group that plays football too excited. His best man, Bono, failed resoundingly, the ball bounced off Fernando and went into the goal. The great goals from Gudelj and En-Nesyri were of no use to Sevilla because they are an absolutely unbalanced team. Their defensive system is a disaster, conceding goals with terrible ease. All the ghosts appear again to the Andalusian team, which was trying to look at the top of the table and found an unexpected blow after four straight league victories in their stadium.

After a very discreet first half, Sevilla improved in the second half, but without ever leading in a game that Osasuna always brought to their home ground. And playing with the substitutes. The locals acted with an unprecedented disorder.

The bath that Osasuna gave Sevilla in the first half was enormous. Arrasate made up to eight changes compared to the team that lost to Madrid. An intelligent bet from the coach of the Navarrese team. First, because that’s how he refreshed his team thinking about the Cup semifinal against Athletic. Second, because the physical contribution of the players who entered destroyed a very slow Sevilla, fatigued after their European match against PSV. Between the VAR and Bono, spectacular, Sevilla was saved from a win. At 18 minutes, David García scored from a corner kick. Bono had already made a save against Moncayola.

The Osasuna players always arrived before their rival, a group with too much lead in their legs. Furthermore, at such a slow pace, it was impossible for Sevilla to beat a team as well organized as the one coached by Arrasate. As the murmurs grew in the stands, the VAR saved Sevilla from the second goal due to an offside by Barja. On the edge of the break, Bono made a tremendous save to Kike García, who still had another clear one to make it 0-2. The best thing for Sevilla, without a doubt, was that they only lost 0-1.

Sevilla tied with a great goal from Gudelj, but then gave away a goal from vervain. Bono and Aitor made saves until En-Nesyri equalized again after great driving and finishing with his left foot. Unable to keep the tie, Osasuna took advantage. A long ball in direct play allowed Abde to make it 2-3 and bring concern to Nervión. Sevilla must continue fighting not to go down after a day in which all the teams below won. “We played with too much anxiety and with a lot of nerves. In addition, we have suffered a flu epidemic and all these factors have made us lose against an opponent who does things well”, clarified Jorge Sampaoli, Sevilla coach. “We have shown a lot of character and that we know how to play football well,” said Jagoba Arrasate. Osasuna will play the first leg of the Cup semifinal against Athletic this Wednesday (9:00 p.m., TVE-1)).
