Sevilla moved back to the top of La Liga as they capitalized on the stuttering form of their rivals by beating Real Valladolid 1-0.
Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona all failed to win on Saturday as Real were shocked 3-0 by Eibar before Atletico and Barca played out a 1-1 draw at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Sevilla took advantage and they made no mistake, Andre Silva continuing his excellent form this season by heading in the winner at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Sunday.
“Nobody expected us to be in this position of course,” coach Pablo Machine said.
“But we are going to fight. We deserve to have all these points and that is why we are first.”
Hosts Sevilla certainly rode their luck, twice needing VAR to deny Real Valladolid an equalizer, with the first cancellation particularly fortunate. Enes Unal’s strike was ruled out as the offside Toni Villa was deemed to be obstructing the goalkeeper’s view.
a victory puts Sevilla one point above Barcelona.
