The points were shared at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán in Jorge Sampaoli's return to the Sevilla FC dugout against Athletic Club.
The home side were the better team in the first forty-five minutes, taking the lead at the start of the game after a very good attacking move. Sevilla however began to suffer in the second half and Vesga brought the score back to level pegging, although the visitors continued to push for another and, at the last second of the game, Sevilla FC were almost able to find the winning goal.
Marcão made his debut at the back as a new addition to the Sevilla ranks, and Sevilla FC now have a sixth point in the league table.
It took three minutes for Sevilla FC to open the scoring in Sampaoli's first game in charge, with Dolberg and Óliver Torres combining following a move down the right flank. Montiel went past Papu on the overlap, who lifted the ball deep into the area and, with the Argentinian's elivery, the Danish striker laid it off for Óliver Torres, who once again found the net and sent the Sánchez-Pizjuán into a frenzy.
Sevilla's momentum didn’t end there, and three minutes later Papu forced Unai Simón to keep out the home side's second after a good strike. Sevilla FC had the upper hand on the scoreboard and put a spanner in the works of Athletic Club’s plans.
