CdR comes to town again. You know the stakes: we lost 1-0 at La Mestalla last week, so we’ll need goals and defense to progress.
M.Cáceres, Spahic, Fazio, F.Navarro
J. Navas, Del Moral, Reyes
Filed under Copa del Rey, Match Comments
Early confusion in the Valencia box as a loose ball following a corner could have bounced our way. 2′
HUUUUYYY Navas! Great ball over the top from Fazio. His near angle shot is pushed away. We’re getting close… 5′
HUUUUUYYY!YY!!!! TROCHO! loops a shot over the defense and almost into the far 90, but the Diego Alves pushes it over. 8′
Negredoooooo! Nearly scores after he rounds his mark. His cross is saved high and from 5 yards. 15′
A three-on-0 ends in Navas blasting the ball into the keeper’s face. He is down on the ground. 16′
It’s just more of the same at this point: good chances, no goals. They still look hungry.
wow! great work from negredo… deflected off the post.
HUUUUUUYYYYYY!!! NEGREDOOOO!! More amazing work, beating four men on the right and sending in a ball that bounced off a leg and then off the near post and out. 26′
had the ball at the edge of the box and finesse/muslced his wan into a shot that nearly went in
medel makes a bone headed pass to valencia, and then within 15 seconds put pressure on the valencia midfield leading them to kicking the ball out of bounds. awesome.
The Sevilla opening storm is slowing giving way to a brutish resistance from Valencia. Eventually we will have to stop saying we deserve goals until we actually score them.
Caceres snuffs out what would have been a sure goal for Valencia. Then, after being pressed, a turnover results in a crazy monkey-save from VARAS. 36′
VARAS AGAIN!!!!!!!! ONE HAND DIVE!!
High pressing from Sevilla is leading to turnovers, just not the free-on-goal type. 40′
Medel is in beast form. Losing balls and winning them right back. Tracking everyone and busting counters with ease.
crap! missed it!
i dont really understand our strategy going forward. its not really playing wide, but not really pushing through the center either. sometimes just long balls over the top… any insight on what our strategy is?
By that I mean he’s about to earn a yellow and lose his edge.
Reyes has been less than great. Navas and Negredo nearly link up in front of goal. 43′
navas gets ball deep on the wing but his ball is too close to the keeper.
Diego Alves is all over every cross from Navas. Our goal should come from elsewhere.
HT. Sheesh. Sevilla nearly end another half by getting scored on.
free header for valencia that is thankfully put wide….
yeah, we’re pressing high, and our most dangerous moments have been from these turnovers, but its not very confidence inspiring that we can actually create anything.
need one goal… at very minimally least.
Navarro is getting dangerously close to a second yellow. 50′
ugh. horrific waste of possession in a dangerous position from trochowski with a long off-mark shot.
caceres has looked really good from what ive seen. we better be getting serious cash for him if he leaves.
We’re not seeing much of the ball. Valencia are touching it around to their peripheral players and we’re chasing. 56′
Reyes with more turnovers than an Arby’s today.
Valencia are taking their sweet time on every throw in and free kick. Who can blame them. Caceres gets a yellow for disputing a corner call. 60′
Rakitic soon to come on. For Reyes?
we dont look dangerous. 30 minutes to get a goal.
Even deep in attack, Valencia are content to drop the ball all the way to Diego Alves. 61′
dangerous chance in the box or us, but is blocked… didnt see who it was…
rakitic for trocho. corner.
Huuuuy! Manu left it for Negredo to shoot from 10 yards. Deflected and out for corner. Rakitic on for Trocho. 62′
negredo shoots a shot that would have been high on a goal 25 ft tall.
is that campana warming up?
Perotti preparing to come on.
starting to press a bit… come on guys.
oh! perotti! wow. embarassing. on for manu.
Perotti on for Manu. 64′
Our front line is stacked. Time to make some noise.
what the fuck was that?
well. its over. we’re not scoring three goals to turn this around. beautiful pass to soldado that was onside… he goes in alone on varas with fazio too slow to catch up, and slides it home easily.
A long through ball splits both stationary CBs and Soldado makes Varas look foolish. 67′
Again. More chances for us. No definición. Fewer chances for them: definición.
This is our Sevilla.
goal rakitic off a rebound of a caceres shot…
please prove me wrong guys. 20 minutes. 2 goals. do it.
Why do we score NOW?
Of course to torture us further with hope
Kanouté is coming on. For Navarro. 71′
big fredi for navarro… 65′
HUUUUUUUUYYYYYYYYYY PEROTTI deflected for a corner. 74′
Linesman judges Navas to be offside when he was several feet onside. Not our day. 79′
rakitic couldve had a second. wouldve made the final minutes more intesresting. instead we’re flopping alot, apparently intent on making them lose a player for the next round.
navas dives too much these days.
dangerous free kick by rakitic and an own goal…
2 minutes left… lets do it!
shit. kanoute went about 1 foot wide on what would’ve put us through… frustrating.
At least we looked as though we are finding our scoring boots.
Caceres wasn’t bad, Navarro needs to be benched for Luna!
We needed our scoring boots in the first 20 minutes when we had golden chances. Too little, too late.
Reyes was a disappointment tonight. He looked slow (a little out of shape) and turned the ball over very easily.
I thought Reyes looked really good. I thought he made some outstanding passes and was around the ball a ton.
