Last minute of Sevilla – Lens, live:
VERY GOOD AFTERNOONSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!! We start this live stream of the Champions League match between Seville and Antwerp on MARCA.com, it is an exciting afternoon of football with the return of the top continental competition.
Despite the strange results in the League in recent long months; despite a complex financial situation in terms of the accumulation of debt, season after season; despite an impossible corporate peace, with pushes by power through the judiciary; and despite what it weighs, Sevilla will enter the group stage of Champions territory for the ninth time in its history, the last four in a row, being seven in the last nine years. A decade in which she has had plenty of time to achieve the challenge of establishing her base camp among the best, no matter how many ifs or buts she may have. the club itself has put itself in the backpack.
However, there is among Sevillismo that feeling of being in the highest continental competition a little bit of a surprise, like someone who sneaks into a party and thinks that everyone in attendance is looking at him, even if it is not like that. Surely the fact of being the great dominator of the other great European tournament, such as the Europa Leaguewhere he is once again the current champion, has to do with that duality between feel like king or vassal. The feeling of unbeatability that Sevilla feels in its Europa League collides directly with the feeling of vulnerability in the Champions League. Only in this way can we explain the disaster he has given in the last two years, one more understandable than the other due to the rivals he was given..
It is logical to finish third if you have to measure yourself against Manchester City (current champion) and Borussia Dortmund, with greater European experience in these fights. More with a team in decomposition like last year, with Lopetegui ceased precisely in a European match at the Sánchez-Pizjuán, where the Basque and Sampaoli shared the bad Champions League path, only sweetened with a third place that opened hope for the future. And boy did it happen.
