The main goal on which our start of the season was focused has been realised. Sevilla FC is now amongst the list of clubs in the Europa League Group Stage after confirming their qualification against Sigma Olomouc in the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán. The almost consecutive goals from Gonalons and Nespor (OG) in the middle of the first half proved too much for Vaclav Jilek's team, who knew after that they were in their last minutes of the competition. In fact, Pablo Machín took the chance to rest some of his players in the second half with El Gran Derbi in under 72 hours. One of the substitutes, Wissam Ben Yedder, killed the game off after a counter.
It should come as no surprise that Sigma started the game off positively, knowing that if they could have made life difficult for Sevilla in the previous leg they could dream of an early goal to spice up the tie. However, the first team to strike were Sevilla, with an active Nolito, who scored in the ninth minute but had his effort ruled out for a supposed foul on Sladky. Shortly after Gonalons gave his first warning, whose long-range strike was well saved by Buchta. And with the Czech team's push, Sevilla exploited the spaces in behind to cause danger. After another long-range strike from Banega, the next to try their luck was André Silva, whose shot went just wide of the goalkeeper's right post.
Gonalons starred, scoring a goal with a strong shot against which Buchta could do nothing
These were warnings which Sigma Olomouc failed to recognise as our first goal of the night arrived in the next play. After ping-ball in the box, Gonalon's powerful effort was successful in beating Buchta. Afterwards, a corner from Banega was met with a great header from Vázquez, which Nespor (OG) headed into his own net. Just before, in fact the very play that brought about the corner, Aleix Vidal could have got the second himself after a quick counter.
