Back to winning ways thanks to… Sergio Ramos the Barcelona!
After the midweek lopsided (2-2) home to Mallorca, the “Blaugrana” should overcome the high hurdle of Seville to return to the positive results and hit the top again, entering its 8th matchday La Liga.
Finally, they managed to overcome the resistance of the Andalusians thanks to an own goal by Sergio Ramos in the “final stretch” of the match (76′), taking their sixth victory in this year’s championship and waiting for tomorrow’s (30/9, 19:30) match of Real Madrid with their 2nd place, Girona.
Xavi’s side were almost caught off guard in the 5th minute when Lukakubakio’s shot went just wide of Ter Stegen’s posts, while in the 16th minute Sevilla threatened again, with the German goalkeeper saying no to Rakitic. In the 21st minute, Felix found himself one-on-one with Nyland, but powerfully hit the crossbar, before Rafinha wasted his own chance in the 34th minute.
Sevilla held on, even missing a chance to take the lead in the 65th minute, with Ter Stegen saving Shaw’s header, but in the 76th minute the Catalans found the winning goal, when Yamal headed in a cross from Ferran Torres and Sergio Ramos sent the ball into his team’s net, for the final 1-0.
