Unai’s 9 months as Sevilla manager began with a draw in the CdR midweek at Zaragoza that some have called:

Today, he’ll make his directorial debut in La Liga today after the team’s harrowing voyage north where they fought rains and a slightly less than AVE AVE service. It seems the team was held up on their way to Madrid after the middle of the country was battered by rainstorms in the last 24 hours. The team took a plane instead, departing from Sevilla at 1:10p in hopes of making the 8p kick.
The genius of Emery is on display, then, as it was he who ordered the rain to come, thus galvanizing our heroes in the overcoming of great obstacles simply to be able to play a match tonight. I sense a motivated and unmovable force is about to touch down in Barajas. We’ll see some familiar faces emerge: Negredo, Medel, el niño Jesus, and maybe even a young friend, Kondogbia.
It’s not Mordor, it’s worse: Madrid.
