Sevilla “gives” another hand in the Europa League ::

The last round of the second group of the Champions League left a guarantee: the Europa League will have a new owner! Sevilla was eliminated from European competitions after finishing its group in fourth place. The Spaniards needed to win in France over Lens to qualify for the second European competition, but they lost in the end (1-2). This group also had a match between Arsenal and PSV Eindhoven, in the Netherlands, just to meet the schedule, as both teams had already reached the sixth qualifying round, with the English side in first place.

The match in France started in a goalless draw and the first 45 minutes ended without many chances being created, although Sevilla came close to the opponent’s goal. The emotions and controversy came in the second half. First, a very questionable penalty was awarded to the home team, which was scored by Przemyslaw Frankowski.

The most controversial moment comes in the last 15 minutes. The referee awarded a controversial penalty kick taken by Facundo Medina and Sergio Ramos was called upon to score. The Spanish international tried to score strongly, but Brice Samba blocked him. The problem is that Lens’ goalkeeper left the goal line before the shot and the VAR ordered a retake. Ramos was called up again, and this time he scored a real goal… like Panenka.

Sevilla came close to achieving the score 1-2, again through Sergio Ramos. The central defender took advantage of the waste after a throw-in and, in a good position, shot into the clouds. After that move, the score was 2-1 in favor of Lens, in a counterattack played by Angelo Fulgini. During the goal celebrations, several players were pushed and this caused a little confusion.

The match between PSV Eindhoven and Arsenal ended in a draw (1-1). Their goals were scored by Eddie Nketiah, in the 42nd minute, and Jorbe Vertesen, in the 50th minute. In this way, Arsenal finished the group with 13 points, four points behind PSV Eindhoven. Lens finished third with six points, while Sevilla exited European competitions with only three points and without winning any match.
