At the end of a completely crazy match where four penalties were whistled, Sevilla drew a draw against Salzburg. The Spaniards, overwhelmed in the first period, especially on the defensive level, have better mastered the second act. The other match in this group G, between Lille and Wolfsburg, starts at 9 p.m.
Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui has won 10 of his 14 Champions League home games (1 draw, 3 losses), with Porto, Real Madrid and Sevilla, but lost the most recent 2, against Chelsea and Dortmund last season.
The Salzburg captain is being treated by club medics and has to leave the pitch temporarily. The game resumes in Seville.
New contentious situation in the Sevillian area. Ulmer collapsed near the penalty spot and appears to be suffering from a jaw pain.
Another big fault from Seville. Lamela nails Camara to the ground with a poorly controlled tackle but this time the referee does not penalize the Argentinian.
Yellow card for Delaney for a big foul on Capaldo, thirty-five meters from his goal.
In the process, Lamela receives a superb ball in the Austrian penalty area. The Argentine takes the ball with his head and grazes Köhn’s left post. It heats up on the Salzburg goal!
Rafa Mir escapes on the right side, delays, before finding Lucas Ocampos, lonely, full center. The former Marseille strikes low to the ground but his shot is countered by the Salzburg defense.
Seville benefits from a free kick placed on the right of the field, off-center, twenty-five meters from Köhn’s goal. Rafa Mir catches the ball with his head but it is caught by the Swiss goalkeeper.
Koundé climbs on the right lane, plays with Lamela who wants to give him the ball but the Frenchman had stopped his race. Salzburg gets the ball back.
Lamela eliminated three players in the middle of the field before being pushed by an Austrian defender entering the box. Rafa Mir recovers the ball and misses the shot. The referee does not return to the fault and makes the Sevilla bench mad with rage.
