Sevilla were too good for them. I hope Mattheus recovers from what looked like a bad injury.
5 La Liga teams in the CL!
Great to see that from Sevilla. Emery imo is the manager of the season in Spain, along with Enrique.
Past 10 seasons La liga teams have won 16 European competitions. Guess Barca could maybe make it 17?
Most impressive thing about Emery is his shrewdness in the transfer market. They had to deal with an exodus last summer - not like Southampton, admittedly, but not far off - with Fazio, Moreno and Rakitic all being poached. They've recruited extremely well, though, and Emery seems to be a savvy manager when it comes to replacing players.
Tbh it's worse than Soton since these are clearly better players than those that were sold at Soton.
Rakitic being sold is similar to Liverpool losing Suarez, especially when you consider what he's(Rakitic) bringing to Barcelona atm.
La Liga next season will be interesting for the battle for 4th place. Atlético could easily get dragged into it if they sell Griezmann, although you'd expect them to finish 3rd. Sevilla and Valencia fighting for 4th again will be interesting if they get past the group stages of CL as that means only one of them can get a CL spot.
