Sergio Ramos, birthday, goal and victory for Sevilla | Soccer | Sports


Sevilla has very few virtues left that bring it closer to the elite. One of them, without a doubt, is having a footballer like Sergio Ramos. The enormous size of the world champion supported his team, with very little football, against a Getafe that also crashed against Nyland’s five monumental saves. With so little, or so much, depending on how you look at it, Sevilla became the second team in the League capable of winning at the Coliseum after Madrid (Rayo won at the Metropolitano). “I feel as young as when I turned 20,” said Ramos, scorer of a lucky goal on his 38th birthday. A goal that he defined in a low-level clash, but that gives life to Sevilla after Cádiz’s victory against Granada on Friday, which placed it three points away from relegation. A clash also marked by the activation of the anti-racism protocol by referee Iglesias Villanueva.

Yellow cards Kike Salas (min. 21), Boubakary Soumare (min. 35), Óscar Rodríguez (min. 43), Gudelj (min. 74), Bordalás (min. 82), Isaac Romero (min. 87), Mata (min. 87). 93) and Aleñá (min. 96)

In the 68th minute, the linesman warned the referee. He had heard a racist insult about Acuña, Sevilla’s left back. Iglesias Villanueva stopped the clash for a few minutes and ordered a loudspeaker to warn of the racist insult and the possibility that the clash could be suspended if it continued. “In the 68th minute, I had to stop the match because there were racist insults on the visiting team’s number 19 with words like “Acuña mono” and “Acuña, you come from the monkey” from fans located in the central area of ​​the field behind of the position of my assistant referee number 2. This incident, following the protocol of action in these cases, was announced over the public address system, with the game not resuming until two and a half minutes later. They did not occur on any other occasion in the match,” Iglesias Villanueva wrote in the crash report. “If there is a racist chant in this field, the game has to stop,” said Djené, Getafe’s captain. The match was resumed and Sevilla won, amid harassment from Getafe who were unable to capitalize on their 18 shots on the Andalusian team’s goal. That’s football.

That Sevilla won 0-1 at half-time could be considered a small miracle. Quique’s team, without midfielders capable of managing the ball, relied on Sergio Ramos in attack and Nyland’s stops in defense. Far from knowing how to defend their lead on the scoreboard after the world champion’s goal after five minutes, Sevilla was a flan, who also insisted on giving goals to a rather dull Getafe. Surprised by the Andalusians’ early set-piece goal, including an error by Moriba in the clearance, the Madrid team had very clear scoring options. Two gifts from Badé and a slip from Nyland did not end in a goal thanks to the marvelous performance of the Norwegian goalkeeper, who even saved a ball from Maksimovic with his face. Getafe is a team that has a hard time taking the initiative, but given the gifts from Sevilla they were able to turn the score around with ease. Since he didn’t do it, he was even able to receive the 0-2 in another great shot by Sergio Ramos that Soria cleared very well. Isaac Romero threw his rebound into the post.

Getafe took absolute control of the match in the second half. Sevilla blatantly went behind, to the point that they were unable to finish off Soria’s goal in a second act that seemed eternal. Between Nyland and Sergio Ramos they were bailing out water, with Mata and Latasa looking for an equalizer. Latasa himself had a very clear chance and failed with everything in his favor. Even Mata equalized, but he was offside after a great pass from Alderete. With more heart than football, clinging to its leader, Sergio Ramos, Sevilla won a very important match. There are six points that separate them from relegation. Getafe, in no man’s land, has the season done.
