A goal from Ivan Rakitic in the added time thwarted the victory of Alavs at Sanchez Pizjun, where Sevilla missed the first points after six games in the League (2-2). In any case, the team of Julen lopetegui, despite the significant absences of Youssef En-Nesyri, Jess Navas, Thomas delaney and Erik lamela, is placed provisional leader of the championship, with the same points that the Real Sociedad.

Alavs, who arrived with a remarkable 10-point streak in the last four days, only took five minutes to take the initiative, thanks to a header from their captain, Victor Laguardia. Since then, the team of Javi calleja became strong in defense against a Seville that began to accuse the nerves.

The first drops of rain, which at times became torrential, gave way to a few minutes of intense alternatives. A braided play between liver Torres and Gonzalo montiel it was enough for Lucas Ocampos the tie is established. However, the added minutes of the first half were still enough for Vitoria to retake the initiative.

A hand of Ocampos in the area, consulted in the VAR by Muiz Ruiz, gave way to the inevitable penalty. Juanlu, wanted by Sevilla during the last summer market, beat Bono with some difficulties, who brushed the ball, although without being able to avoid the 1-2. The referee’s decision was severely protested by the local footballers, very critical of his work throughout the afternoon.

Siege in front of Pacheco

After the break, Lopetegui gave way to Suso and Rakitic, although he soon had to give up the Galician winger, who suffered from his recent discomfort in the right ischium. Everything seemed under control then for the Alavs, because neither Munir El Haddadi neither Papu gmez They seemed to improve the sevillista attack front.

However, meter by meter, the locals besieged the area of Fernando Pacheco placeholder image, where Rafa mir, Ocampos and Rakitic, touched the tie. Finally, the pressure of the stands and the determination of Rakitic unleashed the 2-2 in the first minute of the addition. And it could still be worse for the visitors, because Pacheco smashed a clamorous shot from Papu Gmez on the goal line.

The time added by the referee, considered very scarce by the Sevilla fans, further enraged Lopetegui’s players. The Basque coach, too nervous, joined the protests, although Sevilla could do nothing to avoid their first puncture in their fiefdom.
