Sevilla FC progressed to the UEFA Europa League Quarter Finals after a dominant 2-0 win against AS Roma, with Reguilón and En-Nesyri scoring the goals. The Italian side had come into this match on the back of an eight-match unbeaten run to finish the Serie A season, but came unstuck in Duisburg. Again, Sevilla FC were solid on the pitch, dominating both tactically and physically, as they kept another clean sheet.
The fact is that Julen Lopetegui's Sevilla FC is reliable in every position, from the goalkeeper to the centre forward, making the whole team a very difficult outfit to break down. Against Roma, the Basque manager selected a starting eleven that completely disorganised Paulo Fonseca's team, a new line-up from the manager that, since football resumed two months ago, has only used one starting eleven more than once in the twelve matches played so far.
Sevilla FC got their 25th clean sheet of the season and are on a eighteen-match unbeaten run
The matches against Real Betis and FC Barcelona, the first and third matchdays since football resumed, were the two encounters where Lopetegui used the same starting line-up, a fact which not only demonstrates the squad depth that he has at his disposal, but also the reliability that each and every player brings to the table when they start and fight for the Blanquirrojos.
With all this, the Nervionenses kept another clean sheet, the 25th time they have done so this season in all competitions. They have managed this in just 51 matches, meaning they keep a clean sheet in just under 50% of their matches. Also, the win against AS Roma has now extended the unbeaten run to a stunning eighteen matches, beating the old record by three.
Next Tuesday, Sevilla FC will look to beat English side Wolves to progress to the UEFA Europa League Semi Final and continue to improve and add new records for what has been a historic 2019/20 season in the next two weeks.
