The bookend to Sevilla FC’s 2020-21 season is here, with Lopetegui’s team with an opportunity to surpass the club’s record points total. It has been a long campaign, where many have felt frustration & deception, but also jubilation & renewed hope. Already being an unusual time in football, Julen has tried to make the most of a team kept mostly intact from the season prior, and attempted to reach higher levels. Through those trials have come realizations that becoming elite brings a lot more hardships. The hope for Sevillistas is that we’ll come back hardened and ready to take on the challenge once more.
Sevilla will draw the curtains to La Liga’s season in the final game of Matchday 38 against Deportivo Alavés. As with every year, it will also be the final match for a few players in Sevilla colours. Some are known from the likes of Vaclik, Escudero & Franco Vazquez, while others still remain a mystery as is with every Sevilla off-season. Lopetegui will honour these players in their final game, but the greatest honour was leading them to a Europa League victory last summer.
