Sevilla FCTOThe 5 keys that leave those of Pablo Machn at the top of the table
Hace a month, after chainingthree games without winning (Villarreal, Betis and Getafe), nervousness and doubts appeared in the sevillista environment. But a project needs time. Sevilla got the direct and before the hesitation of Barcelona and Real Madrid,Machn's team was climbing positions thanks to four consecutive victoriesand goes to parn as leader ofthe most tight league of the 21st century.
Much remains ahead but the competition resumes withan attractive Barcelona-Seville on Saturday, October 20. Nothing more and nothing less than the fight for leadership. How has the Sevilla team got here?
It is the dorsalTomas Vaclik. A photo of the Czech goalkeeper sitting while reading a book was one of the triggers of the signing of the thengoalkeeper of the Swiss Baselfor Sevilla last summer. Vaclik is one of the mainstays of Pablo Machn's project.
One of the aspects that Caparrs incarnated after his arrival in the Sports Direction was the remodeling of the caretaker.Sergio Rico went to the Premier, on loan to Fulham (without purchase option), andDavid Soria was pierced(with repurchase option) to Getafe. And Vaclik arrived.
Because of his reflexes, experience and the security he transmits to the team, the goalkeeper is one of the greatest successes of Sevilla in the chapter of signings.Unknown to the general public, the Czech is surpassing all expectations.
In the last four days, Sevilla has scored 14 goals, an average of 3.6 per game, and nine of them have scored the pair formed byAndr Silva and Wissam Ben Yedder. The team boasts of a fearsome offensive potential. The Portuguese and the Franco-Tunisian complement each other perfectly."We understand each other well, when I run, he goes to rejection, and vice versa", stated Ben Yedder.
The '9' Sevilla player has nine goals and three assists in 14 games.Last summer he spoke again about his possible departure, but Ben Yedder continues to do what he does best: score goals. His best argument is his numbers.
Something similar happens toSilva. Many names came out to reinforce the attack and the chosen one was the Portuguese, who had to sign a bad campaign in Italy.The international knew that Sevilla could be a good place to relaunch his career. He has seven goals and one assist in 12 games.
Pablo Machn assured that he will not be a slave to his system if it does not work. With the idea of refreshing the eleven, the Soriano molds his scheme until he finds the results. Starting from the three centers, I moved pieces so that Silva and Ben Yedder could play together, playing Banega as the sole pivot, escorted by two interiors. In the template there is talent and sacrifice, and after recovering players, the variables multiply.
Victories followed (and convincing) beforeLevante (2-6), Real Madrid (3-0), Eibar (1-3) and Celta (2-1).After the last parn Sevilla has added 12 of 15 possible points. Tropez in Krasnodar, in the match corresponding to the group stage of the Europa League. But in LaLiga he does not lift his foot off the accelerator. Three days later, those of Machn prevailed in the Snchez-Pizjun to a leathery Celtic.Barcelona wait in the ninth round. To be the Sevilla able to prolong his streak?
Sevilla has come to have injured at the same timeAleix Vidal, Mercado, Escudero, Gonalons and Amadou. Oh, it's nothing. Machn blesses the parn to start recovering players. Aleix already entered the call against Celta and others, like Mercado, are crazy to return.The technician crosses the fingers so that the internationals come back safe and sound. Sevilla looks down on the board and has no vertigo. For now, enjoy.
