Sevilla vs Borussia Dortmund – 4-1 Defeat

Borussia Dortmund wins 4-1 against Sevilla and Lopetegui and faced a heavy defeat in the Champions League. Sevilla confirmed that Lopetegui has been released from his duties as a manager after the defeat to Borussia Dortmund. An unlucky start has caused a lot of pressure on the manager of Sevilla as they are just one spot away from getting dropped at the La Ligue. Sevilla was able to take home one single point in the last three games they have played this Champions League.

Now Lopetegui finally left the team after he has given a total of three seasons as a manager with 89 wins out of 170 games they have played. Even after qualifying for the Champions League in all three games that they have played, their greatest achievement was winning the Europa League 2020 where they beat Inter 3-2 in the final match.

Jorge Sampaoli may take over Lopetegui’s place as a manager for Sevilla. He also had an opportunity to handle the team of Sevilla in the year 2016-17 but this time he will head back again to Andalusia for the second round.

There was a club statement that read, “Julien Lopetegui has been relieved of his duties as a coach to Sevilla FC after the clash with Borussia Dortmund. This brings an end after three successful campaigns that the club was able to achieve and complete the objectives and unfortunately the fourth season didn’t bring the results we wanted. There could have been 21 points however scoring 5 is not what we want.”

For the first time since 2002 that Sevilla FC has lost four consecutive matches in all of the competitions combined. A public farewell was offered by the Andalusians to Lopetegui at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan stadium. They will be looking for a replacement soon as they wish to change the results for a better future. There will be another match on Saturday in La Liga against the Athletic Club.
