The Seville visit next Sunday to Celtic on Bullets, one of the stadiums that worse they give to those of Nervión. In fact, his balance in First is only 10 wins, the last one achieved last season, while the sevillistas have fallen 28 times and tied for eleven others.
However, in the Vigo stadium the inflection point for Julen Lopetegui and his Seville the year of its debut as a coach at Sánchez Pizjuán. And it is that on February 9, 2020, the last defeat of the Basque coach in his debut as a Sevilla player took place on that stage. The scoreboard ended up reflecting a 2-1 even though En Nesyri overtook his own, but Iago Aspas and Pione Sisto they turned the scoreboard.
Since that day, with a pandemic through even, the balance in all competitions of the Seville it was of 12 wins and 9 draws. And to top it off, the Europa League title lifted in Cologne. Since that afternoon in which the defeat lowered those of Lopetegui from the first four positions to the sixth title of the Europa League more than six months passed. A stumble that this Sunday I know intends to avoid, no matter how much the story ended with a more than happy ending at that time.
