Two victories out of two for Sevilla FC. On the eve before leaving for Portugal to continue with preseason preparations, the team won with a 1-0 victory against UD Las Palmas. Las Palmas had more opportunities in the second half, but Johansson hitting the target from outside the box was enough to seal the win. Julen Lopetegui continued to rotate the squad as more players, who did not travel to La Línea, gradually returned from time off. Even so, the team demonstrated their ability to win and soon took control of the game. However, the scoreboard said different as despite having more possession, the team struggled to break down the opponents and challenge the Las Palmas goalkeeper, Raúl Fernández. Rekik came close after 15 minutes with a header but was stopped by Óscar Rodríguez.
Las Palmas responded halfway through the first half with a powerful shot from Maikel Mesa, who won the ball in the air and came close to scoring, but Dmitrovic was alive to the danger and took control in one of his only saves of the entire half. From there on in, Sevilla showed their patience and were the team most likely to get on the scoreboard, first with a shot from Pedro Ortiz, and then Rakitic went for goal himself from outside the box, but it remained 0-0 at the end of the first half.
