LaLiga: Sevilla blow up chance to top LaLiga an compete with Barca and Atletico
Sevilla squandered an opportunity to stay at the top of the spanish LaLiga table this weekend as they where forced to play a 1-1 draw at Valencia.
Sevilla first opened scoring in the 55 minute through Sarabia with an assist from Ben Yedder. However the side from Seville could’nt preserve their lead as they conceded a late goal through M. Diakhaby.
A win could have created a stiff competition at the top as Atletico Madrid, Barcelona stay at the top with Sevilla on the same point but separated by minor and superior goal difference.
Atletico Madrid and Sevilla have played one match ahead of Barcelona. The catalans face RCD Espanyol in an all Catalan affair (Catalunya Derby).
A win will ensure Barcelona top the league with a point extension.
The 2018/19 LaLiga season has seen stiff competition from Sevilla, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and at some point with Deportivo Alaves.
Sevilla will have to win their next game to stay in contention for the league top.
