EThe tie that closed the day 29, between Real Sociedad and Athletic, has widened the distance between the positions that give the right to play the next Europa League and the fourth square of Champions what occupies the Sevilla. The triple tie between the current champion of the Copa del Rey, Betis and Villarreal they leave the pursuers of the Nervionense team to 12 points away, with nine days to be disputed. That is, of the 27 points that remain, the men of Julen Lopetegui will need sumar 16 to certify its presence for the second consecutive year in the maximum continental competition.
The intention of the Sevilla players, however, is to score as many points as possible and attack, if possible, the LaLiga podium, with which to improve his performance last year in the League and try to qualify (in the event that the Barcelona be a Cup champion and finish in the top three) for the Spanish Super Cup. With all this, the main objective of the course was to repeat in the Champions League, due to the economic boost that this implies for the entity, and it is increasingly close to being fulfilled. Julen Lopetegui will repeat success and goal in his second year at the helm of Sevilla.
Anyway, Sevilla still have complicated games ahead, precisely against those teams that fight between fifth and seventh places, looking already from too far the position occupied by the Nervionense team. You must first visit Real Sociedad and then Villarreal. Two complex outputs. In the matches in the Snchez-Pizjun Sevilla was victorious. Faced with the third in dispute, the Betis, the last victory in Nervin gave him three points and the particular goal-average. The Champions is close. Only a disaster in the final sprint will leave Sevilla out.
