Sevilla finally prevailed 2:1 against Deportivo Alaves, with the locals struggling in the 90th minute to score on a penalty kick.
When Youssef En Nesyri gave Seville the lead in the third minute, it seemed that the charges against Julen Lopetegui were all going in the right direction. There could be nothing farther from the facts. Shortly after, Edgar Mendez equalized. After half an hour, thanks to Suso, the visitors got back into the lead.
At the end of the match, Alaves had the ball in the net for the third time, but after a VAR analysis, Ximo Navarro’s objective was disallowed.
In the end, Deportivo should have equalized. With his hand in the penalty area, Jules Kounde played and Joselu scored. Bono could sense his intentions and made an exceptional save.
