The Seville, after the hard blow he received last Wednesday when he lost the final of the Copa del Rey in the last minute and after missing a penalty against Barcelona, he returns to the League to face the Elche with problems in the squad due to accumulated fatigue and only three days before another tough battle in Germany against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, in which they have to overcome a 2-3 against.
Julen Lopetegui has insisted on turning the page and forgetting what happened to get back on track in the League, a competition in which he has a six-point advantage over his rivals for achieving a place in the Champions League and in which he had six consecutive victories before from Barcelona’s visit to Sánchez Pizjuán in the last duel in which Koeman’s team also won 0-2.
Recovered Ocampos, protagonist in the Cup when he reappeared after the injury caused by Djené with a hard tackle and missing a penalty that would have given Sevilla the final, Lopeteguj loses three other starters. Bono, who was already out at the Camp Nou due to a problem in a finger, Aleix Vidal, who had a muscle puncture, and Jules Koundé have not traveled to measure themselves at Elche, a rival that he will face again in ten days to recover the first day of the League, since the match was postponed due to the dispute of the European Super Cup against Bayern Munich of Lopetegui’s men in Budapest.
The team from Elche, who has improved their feelings with Fran Scribe, you need the points to get out of a complex situation. With Mogica between cottons, the local coach will surely continue his eleven, since he will not be able to count on Rigoni yet. And it is that Elche cannot go letting points escape, which is fighting not to lose the category, being now the penultimate of the table.
