Sevilla wins the Antonio Puerta Trophy without brilliance

Sevilla takes its Trophydedicated to the legend of Anthony Doorafter winning by the minimum Cádizin a game where Lopetegui’s men were from much less to somewhat morewith a Cdiz that I should have come forward in the first period and he did not know how to put his hand to the rival when he placed himself ahead on the scoreboard. The sevillistas, still with many doubts, close the pre-season friendlies with a little joythe first in front of his public, while the cadistas see how after the heavy defeat in the Carranza Trophy, gave the stature in Nervin, although they need to define in the last meters. Without a goal, everything is uphill.

The first half was for Cdiz. Especially with the chances generated in Bono’s goalkeeperwith a Seville that costs a world to close the ones close to its area, as if the ghosts of Kound and Diego Carlos pushed to make unusual mistakes in this Lopetegui team. Not so much for the centrals and yes for the midfielders. Neither was Fernando , so the orphan of the defensive line was almost total. And that Seville started with some intensity, with a good chance to En-Nesyri, who went near the post. He is in denial. However, Nervin is a team that plays in waves, pressing the accelerator when he wants or when he can. Rather the second, because the generation of occasions depended on a start of the Papu or Lamelawith 17 being the most active.

Cdiz adjusted the match script better and found it easy to get to Bono. First with a cross kick from Arzamendia. later it will be Alberto Perea whoever shot to the side of the net, the same as Álvaro before the break, in a bounced ball. Sergio’s team forgave a Sevilla that has been touched by their defeats last weekend in England. The same as a Cdiz that was totally surpassed in its tournament by the athletic. The forces were equal to rest. The local fans asked something more of theirs. Much more.

Sevilla improvement

Lopetegui moved the bench and after two minutes a Rakitic’s shot Ledesma touched it near the edge and crashed into the crossbar. The next occasion was generated again by Sevilla with a pass between the lines to leave En-Nesyri vs. Ledesma. Shot from the Moroccan first and despair of the stands for his usual lack of aim. Y again Rakitic will meet the crossbar in another shot from the front. He played in the back of Ledesma but without finding the goalkeeper later. He got rid of the yellow set of the first. Sevilla had changed their brains and arrived more easily, combining with speed and dominating the wide area. The goal that opened the Trophy was in a combination between Rakitic and liverwith a pass from the extreme and a shot Delaney’s first, brand-free.

Sevilla was ahead with a better version than the gray of the first period. Sergio moved the bench at full speed. Lopetegui also followed his movements. Munir came close to scoring on a low cross from Ocampos, even if the linesman raised the flag. Very fair. Cádiz wanted to leave at least with a draw and force penalties. I squeezed in the last few minutes, with a Choco Lozano’s header to the center of Zaldua from the right side. He tried to put up with the local team, when fatigue was already taking its toll due to the heat endured all night. The Pacha Espino took the goal from Munir at the last minute on another pass from liver, which was half a goal. Ivn Romero found the stick a minute later. Sevilla deserved a greater joy, after which Cádiz forgave in the first. Both have a lot to improve. A minimum joy for Sevilla, who keeps his trophy.
