Valencia 0-2 Sevilla

The match at the Mestalla is among the most important fixtures of the season for both, but Jose Mendilibar’s men emerged as the winners.

Meanwhile, Valencia failed at home and lost against a direct rival so they will remain in the last positions of the overall LaLiga table.

While the first half was boring, the second one was full of drama.

Goals from Bade and Suso give Sevilla confidence after a another away win, while providing the club chance to breathe as they are edging closer to a top-ten position.

Loic Bade managed to get the better of Musah in an exchange and capitalized on Moriba’s mistimed clearance, showcasing rapid reactions to slot a shot past the Valencia goalkeeper.

The goal was checked by VAR as it appeared that Bade elbowed Moriba in the lead-up to it, but the referee ended up letting it stand – much to the fury of the Valencia supporters.

Valencia fans were even more angered by another penalty shout that got overturned sometime after the second goal. The hosts seemingly got a lifeline after striker Marcos de Sosa was tugged down in the area and the referee awarded them a penalty. However, VAR demanded that he look at the monitor – after which he canceled the penalty – much to the fury of the fans and players.

Baraja’s team was fumed as they had penalty call that ruled out by VAR, as Fernando’s arm hit the ball inside the area. Referee Del Cerro Grande decided it was not a spot-kick after VAR review.
