Sevilla vs Levante [Recap, January 25th]

A thriller match with five goals, two red cards and six yellow cards made us lose the bet we placed with bet365 on Sevilla to win this match. They did open the score on the 26th minute through Coke, who capitalized on a chance from outside the box, and even though they started with two forwards as they were aiming at breaking Levante’s defence.

If you look back at the match as a whole you’ll see Levante was the luckiest team out of the two. Fazio tripped Barral and the referee gave the hosts a penalty, converted to a goal by the same Barral. In the second half Sevilla was also given a penalty after Diop handled the ball inside the penalty area, but Rakitic failed to score.

Levante’s goalkeeper was in great form and managed a few important saves from Reyes and Coke. It was already a 2-2 draw in the 70th minute after Vyntra scored and the shocker came three minutes later when Simao Junior seconds after Sevilla’s goalscorer denied Barral.

One would think the match would be over, but it wasn’t so as Nikos Karabelas from Levante received a red card after a tackle on Jairo, the same player who during extra time was also sent off after pushing David Barral. Levante is now in good spirits to meet Barcelona in the second leg of their Copa del Rey clash, while Sevilla is left to figure out how to get rid of the old school Sevilla, the one that was always losing, were picking up bookings left and right, the team nobody stands the sight of.

Result: -6 units, bet lost
