The ‘Papu’ Gómez rescues an anodyne closing of LaLiga

Sevilla and Alavés, with nothing at stake, closed the League in a nondescript match in the only goal in the discount of Papu Gómez enlivened the night and it was worth Julen Lopetegui’s team to establish the historical record of points (77), also putting an end to a great season in which he achieved his goal of qualifying for the Champions League with 5 days in advance and in which he came to dream of fighting for the league title with the greats.

With many changes in both eleven, Sevilla, who after the triumph of Barça could not aspire to third place, took advantage of the appointment for the farewells of several players, such as Franco Vázquez, Escudero or the goal Vaclik, who also saved a hand to hand with Joselu just before Papu’s goal.

After 90 minutes with hardly any chances, the Argentine surprised Pacheco, who replaced the injured Sivera, with a right hand that was worth three points to overcome the points mark held by Emery’s Sevilla (76 in 14-15).
