Barcelona Secures Second Place After Sevilla Win

Barcelona beat Sevilla 1-0 in the second half to move up to second place in La Liga and keep their title hopes alive. 

The 19-year-old midfielder showed great composure on the edge of the box to thump a shot into the bottom corner after a goalless first half. 

In the first half, Sevilla had a penalty claim after Anthony Martial’s shot hit Ronald Araujo’s arm. 

Barcelona, on the other hand, were the better team, as Gerard Pique also hit the post. 

Pique, on the other hand, may have been fortunate not to be sent off late on when he pulled back Jesus Corona, who appeared to be on his way to scoring.

But Barcelona held out to take a crucial three points and extend their unbeaten run to 14 games. They are now 12 points behind leaders Real Madrid with a game in hand.

Sevilla had started the day in second place, but dropped to fourth, behind Barcelona and Atletico Madrid on goal difference, as their own 15-game run without defeat came to an end.
