CardsReferee: Xavier Estrada FernándezVAR Referee: David Medié JiménezMarc Cucurella (30 ‘, Yellow) Etebo (33 ‘, Yellow) Reguilón (34 ‘, Yellow) Nyom (34 ‘, Yellow) Jules Koundé (55 ‘, Yellow) Jorge Molina (58 ‘, Yellow) Djene (61 ‘, Yellow) Chema (85 ‘, Yellow) Nemanja Maksimovic (91 ‘, Yellow) Jesus Navas (92 ‘, Yellow Lopetegui breathes and Getafe wakes up. Sevilla went over it without bragging, but with seriousness and precision. He was better from the beginning and took advantage of his moments to win with authority and snatch the Champions League position from Bordalás, who paid for Thursday’s effort and made more mistakes than ever.Lopetegui was surprised by placing Gudelj as a free man to cover holes and help in the ball out and Sevilla entered the game better. His was the first clear occasion in a shot by Fernando that miraculously saved Soria.The azulones had a hard time settling down, although they had saved the furniture from the bad start without fitting despite their doubts. Little by little they began to arrive near Vaclik and balance the shock. And also came the hostility. In five minutes Estrada took four yellow and the rhythm no longer stopped. The blue team lost 0-3 to Sevilla in a thick and locked match in which the Andalusian team was very effective after deploying a slightly bright game. The Alicante coach criticized the double standards suffered by the blue team.“The label is put to us and nobody has said anything about the loss of time (of Seville). It’s funny, isn’t it? When Getafe wins it is said that nothing has been played and when it is lost, nothing. Today , Getafe loses and nobody says anything. It’s amazing, I’m very surprised, “ he pointed.In addition, he said that Getafe received too many yellow cards and gave an example to assess the difference in criteria of the match referee. “There was an entry from behind in the first half of the left side of Sevilla and they showed him nothing. Then, incomprehensibly Cucurella has been taken out one in a meaningless action.”He also said that the state of the lawn hurt Getafe and said it is “curious” that his own pitch does not benefit his players. “It is not in the best conditions. Let’s see if we recover it and it improves.”Regarding the duel against Sevilla, he indicated that he was a copy of the clash against Real Madrid with a first half that dominated the Getafe that ended up disadvantaged for his men by an unfortunate action of the Nigerian Etebo.“In the first eight ten minutes, they, with several corner kicks And lateral fouls created restlessness. Then we played almost the entire first time in the field of Seville. But unfortunately, they have scored us and it has been a psychological goal. They left the second time with the stimulus for the clouds. It’s a good team, it’s strong, and in a lateral foul, identically, they marked us. Then we went down and made the third one “he indicated.“Etebo has had bad luck when he slips. But in the risk zone, at the beginning, he shouldn’t have turned around. He is aware. We have encouraged him. We have to think about the next game and it will surely not happen again. “he added.Regarding whether the defeat against Sevilla drops Getafe to reality, he said that he and his team are always the same and recalled that he had a team that has the fourth highest budget in the entire category.“We have been quite superior in the first half and a mistake has marked the game. But we are the same and on Thursday we have a very difficult game. It was before this game and will continue to be. The favorite is Ajax and will continue to be “.“We don’t compare ourselves with anyone. We suffer a painful, excessive defeat in my view. We will always go step by step and game by game without forgetting who we are. Those euphoria are a blow to reality. There was bad luck in the first goal and the result is excessive.But we are the Getafe and in front we had the fourth budget.That is important, for others not.If it were not, the clubs would not spend the millions spent“.Finally, he recalled that the second leg of the round of 16 of the Europa League to play against Ajax will be complicated: “We are going to Amsterdam with a good but not definitive result. It is a team that made Real Madrid four in Bernabéu and three in Valencia in Mestalla. It is a great team”He finished. In the middle of the fever and when the teams sought respite from rest, the key action came. Etebo relaxed in the area and slipped leaving the ball loose. Reguilón did not lose the opportunity, stole and gave a goal to Ocampos who had intuited the play. When the players went to rest, their eyes showed that something serious had happened. The two teams had played on Thursday and the first blow was decisive.Bordalás moved the bench at halftime giving Angel entrance for a missing Deyverson. Almost nothing changed. The azulones engaged in a fight with Estrada Fernández, perhaps more for the past than for what was happening. And Sevilla at his own pace waited for the moment to end the game. First Fernando with the mediation of the VAR and then Koundé with the help of Soria finished the job.The Coliseum reacted then cheering on its heroes on the worst night. On Thursday there is a historic appointment in Amsterdam after a considerable blur. Sevilla looks again from above, normality returns to the top of the classification.LopeteguiJulen Lopetegui, coach of Sevilla, said Sunday at a press conference, after winning 0-3 to Getafe, that his team was “forceful” to overcome the team led by José Bordalás.The coach of the Andalusian team was very satisfied with the victory against Getafe, whom he praised for his work throughout this season and who did not rule out to fight until the end for one of the first four positions of LaLiga.“Today everything has been given and we are happy for the three points. Starting tomorrow, we will think about Thursday’s final and continue. Each game requires many things to compete with all the rivals. Getafe is a great team and a great coach They go to the limit and believe in what they do We have tried to counter that“, said.“We have been blunt. The first goal has given us security. In the second part we have made two more with space. Happy with three points. To follow. This does not stop. This is very long. It is very good to win and more when you wear a while without doing it “he added.In addition, he said that trust “is generated through victories” and not only with “good performances” and made it clear that the clash against Getafe will not be a turning point.“What there is is a next game, but nothing more. From there to prepare the next game. That is the progression. But it is always good to win”he stressed.He also said that Getafe will be a candidate for one of the first four positions: “It is a very good team. They qualify him in many ways and I classify him as a very good team. His players believe his coach to death and have been supporting him for years to dead”.“The budgets do not score goals. Getafe is up on its own merits. He was about to go to the ‘Champions’ last year, he is a great team, they won Ajax brilliantly. They are tremendously competitive and will compete until the last moment “he concluded.BordalásJosé Bordalás, coach of Getafe, lamented this Sunday at a press conference that his team always put the label that he plays badly and hard when he wins and criticized that, when he loses, his rivals nobody says anything when they act the same shape.

Recognition: “Glad that in the end they value all the work that a player does, glad to be able to help the team and that things continue to go well.”Seville: “It’s a great team, which is going to make things very difficult for us. We have to keep up the good dynamics, 100% concentrated and try to be effective in the face of goal which is what the parties decide. ”Relevant match: “Importance, like the one we give to tofos, like that of last week and how we will give it the following. For how the classification is, all the matches are very important and this, before a direct rival, has a plus of importance, but you can not miss points in this game or in any.Hobby: “It has a fundamental role. At home we notice it, how they push us, encourage us and help us. It is true that it is a plus to play in the Wanda Metropolitano and on Saturday they will be 10 again ”. Marcos Llorente has been chosen by the fans as the best player of Atlético in the month of February. Although it has played a more secondary role, voters have opted for the middle center. The Madrid player played the full matches against Madrid, Granada and Valencia, against whom he scored his first goal of the season. He also played the second half against Liverpool. The 14′ take over from Oblak, MVP of January, and Mario Hermoso, which was in December. There is this curiosity, that two players who are not having the undisputed cartel with Cholo, have been valued by the fans when they have enjoyed continuity. Beautiful, for example, has barely participated in two games since the end of December.Llorente thanked the prize through the media of the club and analyzed the moment of the team, with special attention to the next game against Sevilla (Saturday, 16:00). For this appointment is expected in eleven, taking advantage of Thomas’s penalty.
This has meant that they have passed from being tenth in the classification to occupying the sixteenth place, just two points from the descent. The armored team is suffering greatly from scoring crisis of its two top scorers last season. Charles, who scored 14 goals, has only 5, and Sergi Enrich, who finished the season with 7 goals, has only managed to see the door once so far in the campaign. Quite a drama.Celta de Vigo – 1 more pointAnother of the historical records of the League that is in low hours. When Celta announced the signings of Rafinha, Denis Suárez or Santi Mina, among others, nobody expected that on matchday 27 the team from Vigo was only one point away from relegation. But that is the reality. The computer does not finish booting and, although he has had moments of good play, the results have not accompanied him and they reach the final phase of the season in serious trouble. Despite not being a large numerical difference, yes it is true that the current sensations are not the best. And it is that, while, at this point of last season, the team led then by Valverde had only conceded two defeats, this campaign already has five. Athletic, Granada, Levante, Valencia and Real Madrid have managed to beat the Catalans. A worrying fact, since the azulgrana finished the league with only three defeats.Your best player, Leo Messi has also lowered his contribution. Last season He had 26 goals, while now he has 19. Seven goals less than, although they serve to be the championship top scorer with some advantage, add to the list of problems of the club directed by Setién. Suárez’s injury and Griezmann’s low scoring contribution, his star signing last summer, as well as defensive weakness in some games, make this Barça’s numbers worse than those of a year ago.Real Madrid – 5 more pointsIf Barcelona, its maximum rival for the title, has left 5 points more than last season, the white team accumulates as many more points in its box. Total, reduces the difference with the Catalan frame by 10 points. Of course, his defeat against Real Betis on the last league game made them lose a leadership they attacked by defeating the Catalans 2-0 at the Santiago Bernabéu, just two weeks ago. While last year they had 8 losses in 27 games, this season is the least expired set, since only the three points have been left against three teams: Mallorca, Levante and Betis, the latter two in the last month of competition. Zidane has managed to give the team a defensive solidity that they lacked a year ago. 19 goals conceded in 27 games make Real Madrid the team with the fewest goals in the five major European leagues.Offensive production is his due. The Whites have 49 goals in their favor, far from the 63 that Barcelona has scored. To put it in context, the Madrid team carries only four goals more than Real Sociedad and five more than Villarreal. A rather discreet figure for a team that aspires to win the League.Seville – 7 more pointsJulen Lopetegui has managed to form a team that aspires to rub shoulders with the greatest next season. The Spanish club, which last year ranked sixth in the table at this point, is currently third, only behind the two ‘giants’. With seven more points in his bag, Sevilla has become a serious candidate to play in the Champions League in September. Not counting big names, Bordalás has built a team that competes in all matches, and that often does so with satisfactory results. Despite having one more point than last year, the azulones do not occupy the fourth place that they occupied at this point. If they are able to bear the extra effort involved in the Europa League, where they have to face Inter Milan in the second roundThey will surely be competing until the last moment to qualify for the maximum continental competition.Atlético de Madrid – 11 points lessIf the Real Sociedad stars in one of the largest growths in terms of points, the whole of Cholo Simeone is one of the ones that has fallen the most. From occupying the second position in the table a year ago they have dropped to sixth, with 11 fewer points. While last season they had 16 victories, today they have only managed 11, tying even more games (12) of those who have won. Although they remain one of the most reliable defensive teams in the championship, with only 21 goals conceded, the rojiblancos have goalscoring numbers that are more than worrying. His 31 goals in 27 games make him 9th least scoring team in the League. The loss of Griezmann, who scored 15 league goals last year, and the low offensive production of Joao Félix, with 4 goals, and Diego Costa, with 2, are the causes of this drop. Alone Morata, with 8 goals, holds the numbers Cholo’s attack.Valencia – 3 more pointsDespite the dismissal of Marcelino, the coach of Valencia for the past two seasons, The Ché have not suffered in the ranking, quite the opposite. They add three points more than last year at this point. And that its results in the last weeks are worrying, since They have only won one of the last five league games. To this we must add the elimination in Cup at the hands of Granada and the win received in Champions against Atalanta. Masip’s good season and defensive line, who has conceded five goals less than a year ago and makes his team the less thrashed from the bottom, has not found a reflection in the attacking area. Sergi Guardiola, with 5 goals, is the team’s top scorer, exposing an evident lack of goal problem.Eibar – 8 points lessAnother team that has suffered a major downturn is the Eibar of Mendilibar. A team based on defensive reliability that has seen how not only concede more goals than last year (5)His goal-scoring performance has dropped dramatically. The Gunsmith Team He has seen the door 11 times less than a season ago. Taking Girona as a reference, Both Granada and Osasuna are in a better position than the Catalan team. The Andalusians have 38 points and are practically saved and even they dream of fighting for Europe. The Navarrese have 34 points and It doesn’t seem like they will have any trouble saving themselves, with El Sadar as a fort, where they are carrying out a great campaign. The explosion of Gerard Moreno, which already has four more goals than in the entire previous championship, and the great state of form of Cazorla, who are living their second youth, are two of the great culprits that Villarreal has grown so much from one year to the next. Calleja, who returned in January 2019 to rescue the team, is the other great architect. Last year he signed 28 of the last 33 points. If they manage to make a similar final straight, Villarreal will return to Europe next season.Athletic Club – 3 more pointsDespite having scored more points than last year, the people of Bilbao are still involved in a little positive cycle, at least in League. In recent campaigns, Athletic, one of the most successful clubs in Spain, does not manage to settle assiduously in the noble area of the table. With a discreet tenth place, three points higher than its records from a year ago, when it was in the twelfth position. FC Barcelona – 5 points lessThe current championship leader, FC Barcelona, it was also in first place last season at this point. After the dispute on Matchday 27, the Catalan team had 63 points to their credit after beating Rayo Vallecano 3-1 at the Camp Nou. There are five more points regarding the current situation of the Catalans. But its success is not only based on numerical data. The Basques are, today, the most attractive team in the League. The Odegaard, Merino, Oyarzabal and company, under the command of Imanol Alguacil, they are delighting the eyes of the neutral spectator, and their own fans, day after day.The realists, who they add five victories in the last seven league games, are the third highest scoring team, with 45 goals to his credit. If we were talking about Monchi before, Olabe is postulated as one of the great sporting directors of Spain. Remiro, Monreal, Odegaard Portu and Isak have made Gipuzkoans one of the best Spanish teams of the moment.Getafe – 1 more pointIf Getafe de Bordalás is characterized by anything, it is its regularity. The azulón box has become the ‘dentist’ of the League, the cotton test for each team. The people of Madrid are the third least goalscored team in the championship, which means they are tied on points with Real Sociedad, which they beat at Reale Arena. Despite the good numbers of some attackers, like Loren, who has 9 goals, Joaquín, with 8, or Fekir, who has 7 goalsDefense problems are condemning a more insecure group than normal in this regard. The 43 goals conceded make Betis the third most scored team of the championship, numbers that make it impossible to fight for higher levels.Levante – 3 more pointsGranotas are closer to salvation than a year ago. Specifically, three points closer. If last season they had the descent to 5 points, this time they look at it from afar with some tranquility. There are 8 points that separate them from the relegation zone. With 33 points to his credit, those of Paco López are only seven of the famous 40 points, which in principle claim to continue in First. The great season of Roger Martí, who has been uncovered with 11 goals as one of the top national scorers, together with the great performance of Aitor Fernández, who could even go to the national team, are the two great news of Levante. The granota club, however, is missing the goalscoring contribution of its ‘Commander’. Morales, who finished the last championship with 12 goals, has only managed two so far.Deportivo Alavés – 9 points lessAlthough, today, they are relatively far from the decline, the situation of the babazorros has nothing to do with what they lived a year ago. El Alavés, who last season I was in fifth position by now, is in the lower area of the table, with 9 fewer points. The loss of important men, like his coach, Rubí; his top scorer, Borja Iglesias, or his best central defender, Mario Hermoso, together with the lack of success when it comes to signing their spare parts it has produced the current situation of the Catalans. Given the trajectory of the team, it is almost a miracle that they are saved, but if anyone can do it it’s Abelardo.Granada, Osasuna and Mallorca – They were in SecondBeing last year in the Second Division, it does not make sense to analyze the difference in points compared to last season. But there is something that can be analyzed, and it is the difference between the teams that dropped last season. If we consider Girona, which was the last team to descend, the Catalan team had 31 points to their credit. His bad final stretch of the season, where he only got 6 points, made them go to Segunda, accompanying Rayo and Huesca. Garitano, what signed last summer as Alaves coach to replace Abelardo, has not managed to consolidate the good role that Alavés did last season. The serious problem of the whole of Vitoria is that is not knowing how to capitalize on his goals. With one more goal in favor than last season, he has achieved nine fewer points.Real Valladolid – 3 more pointsWith better numbers than last season, Real Valladolid has not managed to escape from the low zone. The people from Valladolid have got three more points than a year ago, when they were only one point above the descent, while in the current season they have an income of four. The cucumbers currently have 23 points, far from the 33 with which they reached matchday 27 last season, and three points from salvation. En-Nesyri and Braithwaite’s march has done a lot of damage in the Madrid club, which clings to the good moment of Óscar Rodríguez as an argument to save himself. Being the least scoring team and without their two reference strikers they will have a difficult time.Espanyol – 14 points lessThe prize for the team with the worst evolution goes to Espanyol. The parakeet group, currently led by Abelardo, is in the last position with 20 points, 14 less than last year. An atrocity. The Catalans have gone from fighting for Europe, a prize they got on the last day, to see salvation as a chimera. They have 11 days without leaving the ‘red lantern’They are the team with the most goals and are six points from salvation. Despite having cut last year’s bleeding, when he had 45 conceded goals, and being one of the teams that receive the fewest goals from the bottom of the standings, with 34, his meager scoring output is taking its toll. His 22 goals in 27 games make the team from Vigo the second least goalscorer in the championship, just ahead of Leganés. Iago Aspas, with 9 goals, is still the nail to hold on to.Leganés – 10 points lessAfter comfortably achieving salvation last season, Mauricio Pellegrino dropped the team at the beginning of this campaign. The arrival of Aguirre, after passing through the bench of the interim Luis Cembranos, was an injection of positivism for Leganés, who he was last and practically evicted. Monchi’s return could not have been better for the Andalusians. The signing of Lopetegui, former Spanish coach, has been a success. But, in addition, the new players are giving an enormous performance. Players like Koundé, Diego Carlos, Fernando, Joan Jordán, En-Nesyri or Luuk de Jong they represent a large number of hits.Especially striking is the case of Lucas Ocampos. The Argentine winger came from Marseille for 15 million and has emerged as one of the great names in the League. His 10 goals and 2 assists have contributed to making Sevilla one of the best teams in the championship.Real Sociedad – 11 more pointsThe great winner of the seasonUntil now, it has its own name: the Royal Society. The group led by Imanol Alguacil carries a whopping 11 points more than a year ago, when it was ninth in the table. Today, the txuri-urdin occupy the fourth place, which, if they finished like this, would take them to play the Champions League next year, a competition that has not played since 2013. The Cup final, however, It is the biggest incentive for a team that has come down in recent years. The possibility of obtaining the cupbearer title more than 30 years later keeps the flame of illusion alive in Bilbao. Garitano’s duty, however, will be to try to temporarily forget that final and fight, via League, to get into Europe.Real Betis – 6 points lessThe hiring of Rubí, who replaces Quique Setién and who came from having a great season with Espanyol, and the signings of Fekir and Borja Iglesias heralded a very different season who is living in the Benito Villamarín. The verdiblancos have gone from eighth to twelfth place in the ranking, worsening last year’s records by six points. Looking at the classification, everything seems to be the same or better. The Valencian club is seventh, just as it was last season, and is located four points from the Champions League. But the background is troubling. Celades’ men have received 16 more goals than last year. They have gone from being one of the least scored teams to being the sixth most goals.Last season, after a start with many doubts, they signed a commendable final sprint: they got 22 of the last 33 points in the contest, going back to qualify for Champions, and they won the Copa del Rey against FC Barcelona in a memorable final. Everything points to the fact that this year the end of the season will not be so beautiful.Villarreal – 12 more pointsHis season does not stand out as much as that of Real Sociedad, but their growth has been even higher than that of the txuri-urdin. The ‘Submarino’ has achieved 12 points more than last season. If last year they had 5 wins and 11 draws, this season they have turned it around and have turned 6 of those draws into wins, totaling 11. The one that does have it more complicated is Mallorca. The vermilion outfit has only got 25 points, six fewer than those that Girona got until matchday 27. Looking at it this way, there are reasons to worry. Especially if we consider that they are the second most scored team. But, based also on the precedents, also Celta had 25 points at this point and ended up saving with four margin points. Villarreal and Valladolid, who had 26 points, ended up saving with seven and four points margin, respectively. So, there are reasons to be worried, but also to dream.
The first in number of historical games is Adelardo, with 553 games played. Tomás Reñones follows, with 483 matches. The third is Collar, with 470. Aguilera is fourth, with 456 and behind is Koke, with 446. As soon as Koke plays this season (eleven LaLiga games plus the Champions League games remain), Koke will be able to surpass Aguilera and take fourth. Adelardo has always stressed that he would love for Koke to catch up with him in that first place. If Koke continues several years in his club, he is always called to make history and play more of those 553 of Adelardo.Calleja is fifth, with 425 and Arteche, sixth, with 421. And then there are already footballers who have been a very prominent part of Atlético in these seasons. Gabi played 417 games, Torres, 404 and Godín, 389. Next on the list are Luis Aragonés, with 370 games; Alberto, 362; Quique, 361; Rivilla, 356 and Ruiz, with the same number. And later there are three other players who have become legends with Simeone. Juanfran is the sixteenth footballer who has played the most games with Atlético, with 355; Rubio, 334; Filipe Luis played 333 matches, Escudero, 330 and Raúl García is the twentieth, with 329 games.Saúl aspires to also be among the players with the most games have disputed with Atlético. The midfielder is in position 33 and has 286 official clashes with the red and white. Saúl’s challenge is to reach 300 matches with Atlético this season. Cholo’s men take on Atlético’s history. Simeone’s men, those who have been with the Argentine coach in this glorious stage in the Madrid club, are among the Atlético footballers who have played the most games with the Atletico team. Since 2010, with the conquest of the Europa League in Hamburg against Fulham, by Quique Sánchez Flores, Atlético has lived a few years with great successes in Europe and in our country. And historical players have passed through the club, many of them considered among the best ever in the state.So, among the 20 players who have defended the most rojiblanca jersey, there are seven who have played under Simeone: Koke, Gabi, Torres, Godín, Juanfran, Filipe Luis and Raúl García, legends of the club for their games and their titles. They contributed decisively to winning the trophies that Atlético has been conquering in this decade. Torres arrived to finally lift a title with the team of his life and Raúl García left the team to go to Bilbao but they left a huge legacy. Gabi, Koke, Godín, Juanfran and Filipe Luis have been basic during the years of Cholismo.
