Osasuna 1-1 FC Sevilla: rest at El Sadar!

Few surprises offered Lopetegui in the starting XI and the one in the center of the field lent itself to speculation. Perhaps the only one was the presence of Rafa Mir, injured after some time, in front of En-Nesyri. Delaney had won the opportunity by establishing himself as the best in the Antonio Puerta Trophy and only Ocampos’ doubts could arise, because he did not train for part of the week, although, like at other occasions, it seems to be a precaution. . A very offensive team in which Papu Gómez was responsible for leading the charge.

Osasuna started with more equipment and the intention to surprise. And he almost succeeded because he chained three finishes in the first minute, to which only the inaccuracies of Rubén Peña and Chimy Ávila prevented Sevilla from having to regret it.

An energy that the Navarrese team maintained with the aim of taking advantage of those first minutes when it was fresher to press a Sevilla that usually sleeps in games, confirms the slowness and begins to set the pace of the match.

This effort had a price, with these same two protagonists. Minute 9 passed when Rubén Peña, who made his debut as a starter, sent a precise cross to the far post for Chimy Ávila, very alone and winning the back of Gudelj, to finish with a header at pleasure . They had not reached ten minutes and it was time to come back against a tough team. Lopetegui’s side couldn’t have seen worse, as they didn’t appear in the opposite area.
