Pablo Machin moans about dropped points

Sevilla boss Pablo Machin expressed displeasure over the way his team dropped two’ after Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Mestalla.

Mouctar Diakhaby’s last-gasp equaliser held Sevilla to their second successive draw, keeping them second in La Liga, and Machin complained about his team’s inconsistent display.

“If I didn’t watch the game, I’d have said that a point was always good away from home against a super team,” the Coach said after the match as cited by Football Espana.

“However, given how we played in the first half, scoring in the second and them equalising with the last kick of the game, we feel Valencia gained a point and we dropped two.

Julen Lopetegui downplays Sevilla’s shock La Liga lead

Julen Lopetegui played down the significance of Sevilla taking top spot in La Liga following Sunday's 1-0 victory over Deportivo Alaves.

“It’s one of those stadiums where Sevilla haven’t been able to win. We were so close to doing so that we feel a point is less than we deserve.

“We fell short and it’s a shame that we didn’t get the victory that would’ve sent us 13 points clear of our opponents.

“I hope we don’t regret dropping them going forward. You have to defend tooth and nail in the last few minutes, but we’re all human.”
