Eindhoven continues to be a paradise for Sevilla

EI Sevilla will be in the round of 16 of their Europa League despite losing to PSV in their paradise of Eindhoven. Sampaoli’s men were far superior throughout the match but they got complicated in the final stretch when relaxation made an appearance. This and also that Van Nistelrooy was much more successful with his changes than Casilda’s, who, incidentally, did not have much to choose from on the bench.

If PSV’s plan was to put fear into Sevilla’s body from the start of the game, it didn’t go too well. Beyond showing themselves somewhat more alive in the disputes, those of Van Nistelrooy did not take long to dissolve as those of Sampaoli were settling on the grass. Oliver began to find Navas on the right and the world champion’s crosses put fear into the body of the locals. Telles had a good chance with a free kick that went up just a bit and Bryan also claimed his share of the limelight, leaving very dangerous runs when he managed to avoid kicks from PSV defenders who felt increasingly helpless.

Said impotence was transferred to a stand that began to protest everything, including the mistakes of their own, to culminate half an hour into the first half by throwing objects onto the pitch. An unfortunate event that, inexplicably, ended with a yellow for Acuña for delaying a throw-in from the side in which everything was falling. Meanwhile, the more than 1,000 Sevilla fans who populated the visiting stands had a great time, since the little suffering allowed them to recall very happy times on this same stage.

Only fear entered Sevilla’s body, or something similar, with some indecision from Dmitrovic in a couple of aerial balls, but the blood did not reach the river and the first half died with Sevilla in the rival area and without a shot at the door of PSV.

The script of the match did not change too much in the second half. On the contrary, he seemed to be even more expensive for Sevilla. In Nesyri he did not know how to take advantage of Bryan Gil’s umpteenth gang fight and his shot was repelled by the local goalkeeper. Rakitic, for his part, ran into the crossbar when he had everything in his favor to open the scoring for his team.

As the minutes passed, PSV got closer to Dmitrovic’s area, but both the Serbian goalkeeper and his defenses managed to thwart the locals’ chances. Although they were becoming clearer and grew in number when the changes arrived. Above all, as a result of Fabio Silva’s entry onto the pitch.

De Jong was destined to score against his former team and with just under a quarter of an hour to go the goal came that set the fans on fire. The drama for Sevilla could have been even greater five minutes later, when De Jong beat Dmitrovic again, although said goal was invalidated due to a previous offside that angered the PSV fans even more.

So much so, that an unfortunate event occurred in the discount and that should lead to a harsh sanction for PSV. Although the cameras did their best not to show images of the incident, a fan jumped from the stands and attacked Dmitrovic. The Sevilla players made gestures that made it very clear that they wanted to leave the pitch, but Orsato opted to continue the game, extend stoppage time and allow PSV to score a second goal that caused a last minute of nervousness, luckily, without consequences for Sevilla.
