In the tenth round of this season’s La Liga, Sevilla welcomed Getafe in the fixture that was painted as one of the most intriguing in this game week, as it was seen as a potential long term battle for the European spot in next year’s campaign. Julen Lopetegui’s boys have shown that they will be the ones pulling the strings of the game right from the start which helped them secure a 2-0 win and to get to three new points. The away team couldn’t find the way to overthink their opponents, so they’ll need to wait for the next chance to get to some points.
The hosts’ coach set his team in the 4-3-3 formation with their biggest strengths in the right-flank “engines” embodied in Jesus Navas and Lucas Ocampos who were playing down the right-handed sideline as the full-back and the winger respectively. The main creative force of their side was Ever Banega and Joan Jordan, who held the midfield together with Fernando, while Nolito on the left-wing and Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernández were the key threats for the opposition’s goal.
José Bordalás went into the game with his usual 4-4-2 formation which was quite strict and was mostly depending on the good defensive block.
