Sevilla is not having a good moment in the Spanish Championship. Of the seven rounds played, the Spanish team won only one match. With five points added, the rojiblancos occupy the 17th position in the table, one less than Almería, which is in the relegation zone.
In the Champions League, the scenario is similar. For the European tournament, Sevilla still couldn’t win. The Spaniards have a draw and two defeats, and are in third place in group G, just ahead of Copenhagen, with the same score.
Since 2019, at Sevilla, Lopetegui won the Europa League for the club, in the 2019/2020 season. With this passage through the Spanish team, the coach became the fifth coach with more official games in charge of Sevilla. In addition, he has achieved three straight qualifications for the Champions League, as well as beating the team’s scoring record in La Liga with 77 points in 2020/2021.
