Sevilla could be satisfied with the point achieved against Osasuna. The Navarrese team lacked the ambition to knock out a rival who, after an acceptable first half, fell into the abyss in an incomprehensible second half. Sevilla, affected, without vitality, suffered a strange paralysis. Osasuna tied after Isaac’s first-half goal from a set piece through Budimir. They wasted the entire second half against this Sevilla without answers, who did not shoot between the three posts of the Navarrese goal until the 95th minute. Sergio Herrera deflected Sergio Ramos’ shot and then was quick to deflect the ball. With so few arguments, victory is an entelechy for Sevilla.

Osasuna took center stage in the second act in the face of Andalusian inaction. Soumaré dried up and all local football was a nonsense. Aimar Oroz and Moncayola enjoyed two clear actions to achieve the second goal. Osasuna’s dominance was already complete after the direct red card to Suso for a harsh challenge on Oroz in the 85th minute. Thus, Sevilla added its 10th game without winning at home. Everything acceptable that he drew in the first half, with a good Isaac, was diluted in the second. One point separates him from the abyss while Osasuna breathes much easier. Jagoba Arrasate’s men did not want to do more damage against this vulnerable Sevilla team. Quique’s men, who are not lifting their heads, are saved by the low production in points of Almería, Granada and Cádiz.

Gone were the fans’ applause for their team at half-time. The tribute to the three Sevilla fans who died last Thursday in an accident on the way to Madrid caused an emotional minute of silence. It also gave rise to an outburst from the Sevilla fans in support of their team. There was chemistry. A group, that of Quique Sánchez Flores, in which Agoumé made his debut in the center of the field, with Rakitic in the stands while his transfer to Saudi football is completed. A Sevilla, at least, well organized, which lived off of Isaac’s nose (he has scored his team’s last four goals in just five games played). There was hardly any news from Osasuna, which lacked some intensity and play between the lines. Soumaré dominated the central plot and the Navarrese team, quite comfortable on the table, only offered danger in a shot by Moi that Nyland stopped well. Sevilla may be bad, but even so, winning at home requires much more.

After the excitement of the first act, Sevilla broke down. The tremor settled in the local players after Budimir’s tie. A draw that came from a set piece, one of the big problems for this Sevilla team that finds it so difficult to compete. Every ball into the Nyland area was a problem. Osasuna took advantage of it, which tied, with almost the entire second half ahead. But he only gave it to tie. He had to believe it and go after a rival who was awaiting the sentence. And all in a Sánchez Pizjuán who suffered the umpteenth defeat of this disastrous season. Osasuna went about its business. A point that helps you navigate calmly through the middle zone of the classification.
