Match Comments: Sevilla v. Eibar

Eibar are a tough side.  This won’t be easy.  But we need all three if we want to stay in the Champions League positions.  Atletico are currently on fire and so are Sociedad (Gameiro came off the bench and scored a hattrick in five minutes earlier today to give them the win).  We can/should win this match, but that doesn’t always work out as anticipated.

I’m sure the team is also getting excited for the midweek match against Leicester (who just lost while playing with an extra man for 40 minutes to Millwall in the FA Cup).  They’ll need to be focused on the job at hand to not accidentally let points drop.

Hoping Kranevitter doesn’t play, but bracing myself for the worst with Iborra out (yellow card accumulation).  Full team is: Sergio Rico, David Soria, Rami, Mariano, Mercado, Carriço, Lenglet, Escudero, Kranevitter, Vitolo, Sarabia, Vietto, Nasri, Correa, Nzonzi, Jovetic, Franco Vázquez, and Ben Yedder.

Bring me three points gentlement.  If you do it in style, I won’t complain.

  1. I think a huge game like the one tonight should have a thread for comments a couple of days, if not even a week before. Once a match is finished, there should be a thread for the other match, so that we can discuss about it, or any other thing that has not to do with the past matches.

    In all the forums, there are pre-match, during match and post match threads for all the games. If we can have something like that it would be nice. For example, a during-match topic to discuss when the game starts, a post-match for that same game for 1-2 days after it finishes, then a pre-match for the upcoming game right after. Just my 3.5 cents 😛
