Controversy in Sevilla-Atlético de Madrid: should the Ocampos penalty have been repeated after Oblak’s stop?

The main play of the game, without a doubt, was the foul he executed Lucas Ocampos and what did it contain Jan Oblak. At the moment that the forward kicked, several players from both teams were observed invading the area and the crescent. Just one of them, Saúl, ended up clearing the goalkeeper’s rebound to the side. If he VAR I would have checked the situation, surely the Seville he would have a second chance by taking refuge in what is established in the Regulations.

In addition, Ocampos he came from missing a key penalty against him Barcelona in the semifinal of the Copa del Rey and ended with a run that he had for the League of 100% effectiveness in the local championship: he had kicked nine penalties and converted all nine, which allowed him to equal the record of consecutive penalties scored by a player from the Seville in the League (Rafa Jaén’s brand, which coincidentally was also cut against the same rival).

The one who is also not having a good time, is the Atlético de Madrid that he has squandered all the points advantage he had in just over a month. To win tomorrow the Barcelona, would go to 1 and with the confrontation between both still to dispute. A little further back, at 3 units, is the Real Madrid waiting on the lookout for some opportunity and climb to the top of the tournament.

Party synthesis

At the start of the match, a Seville brave and brave who clearly surpassed the leader in all sectors of the field LaLiga Santander. So it was, that the mattress could not find solutions or reactions from his players, so Diego Simeone had to make adjustments before the end of the first half.

In the second half, the Athletic came out more whole and at Seville His strength began to fail him, and the party leveled off tactically. Then, after a great play by Navas, his center reached the Acuna Egg that headlong gave the triumph to Seville and leaves Atleti very touched in the face of the next matches, although he will continue to lead alone when the Spanish day ends.
