Valencia Prevails: Exciting 2-1 Victory Over Sevilla Marks La Liga Kickoff

By Score More

La Liga kicked off with a clash between two major southern Spanish clubs. Valencia secured a 2-1 victory against Sevilla in the opening round of the Spanish championship this Friday. Two Portuguese players were on the field, both representing Valencia – Thierry Correia and André Almeida.

Around the one-hour mark, the first goal of the match arrived. Valencia displayed a well-designed offensive play and was in control at that point. André Almeida patiently held the ball at the corner of Sevilla’s penalty area and delivered a good pass to Diakhaby. The midfielder’s first-time shot was scrappy, but it deceived goalkeeper Bono, who is being pursued by Real Madrid. André Almeida was substituted shortly after.

Shortly thereafter, Sevilla equalized through the ‘giant’ En-Nesyri, who responded well to a brilliant cross from Spanish player Suso. Young Javi Guerra secured the final result with Valencia’s second goal at the 88th minute. He faced Bono directly and slotted the ball into the net. The VAR reviewed the play but quickly confirmed the goal’s validity.

Notable was also the 81st-minute red card for Loic Bade, who deliberately grabbed Hugo Duro when he was sprinting towards the opposing goal alone. The final score settled at 2-1 in favor of the visitors. Three points for Valencia, zero for Sevilla.
