Sevilla’s poor start to 2022/23 continues with Almeria defeat

Sevilla’s frustrating search for a first La Liga win of the 2022/23 season will now stretch until September.

Julen Lopetegui’s side lost 2-1 away to Andalusian rivals Almeria to confirm they have picked up just one league point from their opening three games of the campaign.

Despite the night’s end result, Sevilla started as the brighter of the two sides at the Power Horse Stadium, with star midfielder Oliver Torres rightfully edging them up front.

However, the hosts reacted smartly to this early setback before the break as Largie Ramazani finally pushed them level just before the interval.

It put the tie on a knife edge after the restart with man of the moment Umar Sadiq producing a deadly finish to clinch all three points for Almeria.

Sadiq looks increasingly likely to stay at Almeria in the coming days despite widespread interest in the Nigeria international’s transfer in recent weeks.
