Juventus 0 – 0 Sevilla: “Pretty OK”

“Pretty OK!”

That’s how a Seattle Monchis Men writer, Aaron, described seeing the result of Sevilla’s first Champions League journey of the year to take on Juventus in Turin. He said he was following the match every 25-30 minutes on a phone app while at work. “And so yeah, I turned it on at 20′ and it was 0-0, and I thought, ‘Pretty OK so far!’ And then later, at like 74′ I saw it was still 0-0 and was like, ‘Yep this is very pretty OK. I bet Juve is getting N’Zonzi’d out there.'”

Aaron said it was a very competitive match, which was clearly reflected in the stats analysis he was able to throw together. “I saw that neither team had scored at that point, so that meant no goals to no goals!” But he reassured us the match was a competitive affair regardless of the platform. “I was able to really sink into the intensity when I saw it go to 90+1’. I thought, ‘Will Sergio Rico make a save?’ and then the app said ‘Sergio Rico makes a save’. And I was like, ‘Good job, Sergio Rico. We got this.'”

Tremendous stuff from one of the top soccer minds on the internet.

  1. thankfully we have a really high release clause on aaron. so when soccernet reads this article and tries to snatch him away, we’ll at least be sure to get good value.

    brilliant stuff aaron!

  2. No Nasri, Pareja, N’Zonzi and Mariano for tomorrow’s match vs. Eibar.

    Nasri and Pareja have replacements (Vitolo/Sarabia for Nasri and Carrico for Pareja). Even Mariano can be replaced (Mercado). I’m worried about N’Zonzi, but he definitely needs some rest after being a starter and never subbed in all of our matches this season. Ganso or Kranevitter? Or maybe a defense of Mercado – Rami – Kolo- Escudero and Carrico as DM?
