Sevilla FC pick up a point this Wednesday night at the Mestalla against Valencia CF. It will feel like two points dropped for the team based on how Julen Lopetegui's team started the first half. The coach was not there in person to see it after remaining in the team hotel after experiencing COVID symptoms - Pablo Sanz managed in his place. After Diakhaby scored an own goal, the team had numerous chances to widen the gap. Those missed opportunities would haunt us as Guedes equalised just before the half was up. Tecatito had the best chance of the second half following a great pass from Diego Carlos, but the Mexican winger could not find the finish. The draw leaves us with 45 points in the league, four behind Real Madrid.
The first half went in the team's favour and was in control until the very last minutes when a Guedes goal revived Valencia who had been struggling. We went ahead in the 7th minute when Ocampos released Montiel whose cross was turned in by Diakhaby. After that, Sevilla dominated, controlling possession, being aggressive and creating chances.
