Sevilla and Girona delved into the wound of Valencia (0-2) and Elche (0-2) this Sunday on matchday 29 of LaLiga Santander, with two wins to move away from the relegation zone in direct duels as well as for salvation.

The Andalusian team continued its positive dynamics since the arrival of José Luis Mendilibar less than a month ago thanks to goals from Badé and Suso. Sevilla does not know defeat with the Basque coach and at the Mestalla they placed themselves at 35 points, compared to 27 for an unfortunate Valencia that marks the relegation.

Without being brilliant, the visiting team was effective while the ‘che’ team was frustrated with controversy. After a first half without chances but with a lot of tension, Badé made it 0-1 after the restart, with some luck in a corner kick and the locals claiming a foul. It was not the worst for Valencia, since shortly after the referee did not whistle a possible penalty from Fernando.

The VAR did not smile at the ‘che’ team and in the midst of local despair in search of a goal, Sevilla made it 0-2, the work of Suso. A hard blow for Mestalla, who did not hesitate to direct his anger towards the box, while Sevilla, who will seek the Europa League semifinals against Manchester United on Thursday, grows with Mendi.

In addition, in the morning session, Girona also took a giant step (38 points) to savor their permanence thanks to goals from Taty Castellanos on the brink of half-time and from Oriol Romeu on 70′. Elche, closer and closer to confirming their relegation to the Second Division, started better but soon ran out of gas, thinking about the second half when they conceded 1-0.

Beccacece’s book in Elche made water again, while colliding with Gazzaniga also in the restart. Girona gradually gained control and, once again, needed little to see the door. With the 2-0 and despite the fact that Elche did not give up, the clash was sentenced, with a red from Elche for Ponze at discount and three points of almost salvation in Montilivi.
