Those led by Julen Lopetegui have a very tight and complicated schedule, starting with the visit to Sanchez Pizjuán, he continues to receive the athletic and then the Champions League match in Moscow, nothing easy, but nothing that the European Champion was not used to.
The first challenge was to face Sevilla at home and Lopetegui has not saved anything, has come out with the 11th gala to face the game against a Sevilla that is inspired by his last two goals in Europa League and League.
The match would start with a tremendous pace from Sevilla, in Madrid, it looked like a third team, it did not come out at all and Sevilla took advantage of an inspired André Silva who in less than 25 minutes would have a double. The Madrid tried to react but it was one of those days where you do not get anything, Bale has crashed a ball in the wood and then Ben Yedder would put the third for the Sevillistas, all the meringues wanted to go to the rest they did not understand what was happening, They were giving a dance like never before.
The second part had a proud Madrid who looked for the discount from all sides and would get it with a goal from Modric after a great pass from Asensio, but with the help of the VAR was canceled by a microscopic offside. The meringues would continue trying, making the 3 changes, would enter Ceballos, Mariano, and Lucas Vázquez to look for what would be a historic comeback but would get a goalkeeper, Valclik that saved a hand in hand against Bale and took another clear shot of Modric. The minutes passed and Sevilla continued to provoke the same danger to the counter and to make everything worse, Marcelo would be injured and leave the team with 10 minutes remaining 20 minutes ahead.
The match ended with the songs of “Olé Olé Olé” in the Sánchez Pizjuán, a tough defeat for the meringues that in 3 days they will have to confront the Cholo team that scored in their last game.
