It’s all over! Sevilla’s La Liga title hopes are still just about alive thanks to this 1-0 win. It’s been hard work at times, but they just about deserve the three points on the balance of play.
That was the chance! Valencia open up their hosts right at the last, but Bono gratefully makes a routine save.
Paulista looks for a late penalty but there’s nothing going and in fact the Valencia man is the one to pick up the booking for his attempt to dupe the officials.
Sevilla defend it well, but this game has suddenly got a little nervy for the hosts, and there are five minutes of added time too - plenty for a late suckerpunch!
Corner for Valencia. Surely not?
Sevilla have been in complete control and are just a few minutes away from the win that would keep them in the four-way title fight. But all it takes is one moment of magic from the visitors to end all of that sort of talk.
Since the teams started making changes there has been nothing really from Valencia, whose effort has rather fizzled out.
On comes Musah as Valencia look to get some extra pace on the field to try and threaten something on the break.
If Sevilla see this game out for the win then it really does keep them in the title hunt, although they’ll be reliant on the teams ahead of them. It would move them just three points off league leaders Atletico Madrid, two behind Barcelona and one point shy of Real Madrid… although both Madrid clubs will have a game in hand.
The old swagger of Sevilla is back now and their toying with their visitors at the moment. It’s still just 1-0 though, so they could do with another before really relaxing into their keep-ball display.
Sevilla have hit Valencia twice on the break since the goal and it’s pretty clear there are going to be some chances for them as Valencia push in search of an equaliser.
The goal stands after a lengthy check. That’s huge for Sevilla.
- GoalYoussef En-NesyriSevilla FC
GOOOAAALLL!!! This time En-Nesyri makes no mistake, making a perfectly-timed run to nip in behind the Valencia defence and slotting home past the onrushing Cillessen. It’ll be checked by VAR though…
En-Nesyri finds space in the box and is picked out by a gem of a cross, but he slides his header wide of the far post. He should have done better there.
There’s a change on the way for Valencia too, with Cheryshev waiting on the touchline to come on against his former side.
Suso has a crack but it’s straight at the keeper. That’s more like it from Sevilla though, who have barely let go of the ball since their triple substitution.
Okay, this game has really opened up now as a ball fizzes across the face of the Valencia goal. It’s not enough to halt the substitutions for the hosts though, who are making a triple change!
Valencia threaten again but Bono makes a couple of decent saves. The visitors have been so good since the interval, they deserve to be ahead.
Vallejo sees a close-range effort blocked after a lightning counter-attack from the visitors. They’ve been the better of the two sides since the restart.
I was quite surprised to see no changes at the break for Sevilla, and the early signs are that they haven’t really upped their game in the second half either.
- 2nd Half
We're back underway. Can Sevilla find the goals to keep their slim title hopes alive?
The half-time whistle goes and it’s goalless at the break in Seville. Catch you in 15.
The home side have had 60% possession so far this evening, but have done very little with it. Maybe we’ll see some changes at the break to liven things up?
Suso’s shot can only be parried by the keeper, but Valencia manage to scramble it clear.
Soler curls a free-kick over the bar. That was a decent position and he grimaces in disappointment.
This hasn’t been the performance of future-La Liga Champions from Sevilla so far, to be honest with you. They’ve lacked their usual sharpness.
What a hit that is. Gudelj is miles out but has a pop anyway, and his swerving shot very nearly picks out the far corner. Cillessen wasn’t getting that.
En-Nesyri is making some dangerous runs this evening and again gets behind the Valencia defence, but his final ball isn’t the best (which pretty much sums up Sevilla’s performance so far).
Sevilla are running this game now, but still chances are in short supply. It’s a frustrating one for the hosts, who know that their slim title hopes could evaporate tonight.
Suso emphatically finds the far corner of the net after his run is picked out by a fine ball over the top, but he was just offside and the goal is chalked off.
Vallejo pings in the best effort of the night so far for the visitors, but it’s a comfortable save for Bono.
En-Nesyri gets slipped in behind after the ball appeared to go out of play, only for the referee to wave play on, but his shot cracks into the side-netting. He probably should have gone across the keeper there.
Sevilla looks for the dangerous Gudelj with a couple of crosses in quick succession, but he’s well-marshalled on this occasion.
Neither team have really clicked into gear yet. Sevilla are noticeably the classier of the two outfits, but are yet to hit their stride.
Ooh, that’s clever. Valencia try a pull a quick one, dummying the free-kick and Soler instead trying to curl an effort the other side of the wall to sneak in at the near post. It wasn’t far away either!
- Yellow cardSergio EscuderoSevilla FC
The game’s not really got going yet, but Valencia earn themselves a chance to get the ball into the box as Escudero lunges in late and picks up a booking.
Chaos at the back for Valencia as the home side get a dangerous scross in. There are appeals for a penalty too as En-Nesyri tries to get a shot away, but there’s nothing doing there.
- 1st Half
Sevilla are in their usual white with red trim, Valencia are in an eye-catching all-orange.
Here we go then, the players emerge from the tunnel at Sevilla and we’re moments from kick-off.
And since it was written, Barcelona have dropped even more points.
This article explains the goings on in bizarre title race in Spain.
Valencia had been in danger of getting sucked into the relegation scrap, but victory over Valladolid last time out means that the focus can instead shift to pushing up into midtable, with a top-half finish still not totally out of the question.
Sevilla still have a faint chance of winning La Liga this season, but just one point from their last two league games has derailed that unlikely title charge. They go into this game six points behind Atletico Madrid with three games to play (with Barcelona and Real Madrid between them and the league leaders). It’s a long shot at this stage, but victory this evening would at least put pressure on the trio of teams above them.
Good afternoon and welcome to live coverage of Sevilla v Valencia.
