Sevilla vs Arsenal Full Match Reports
Arsenal surged to the summit of Group B in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) after a thrilling encounter that ended with the English team narrowly defeating Sevilla 2-1, thanks to goals from Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus.
The match kicked off at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, where Takehiro Tomiyasu initiated the action by firing a shot wide, and Martinelli soon followed with a strike that Ørjan Nyland thwarted. Under new management, Sevilla’s Diego Alonso would have been relieved to see his team create an opportunity in the 10th minute. Jesús Navas, who featured against Arsenal in 2007, sent a low cross to Lucas Ocampos at the near post, but the Argentine could only steer the ball wide.
After an entertaining start, chances became scarce as the first half developed into a cautious affair. However, the game erupted back to life during first-half stoppage time when Martinelli led a swift Arsenal counterattack. He rounded the goalkeeper and calmly slotted the ball into the net, sending the visitors into the break with jubilation.
With the momentum on their side, Mikel Arteta’s side launched an intense second-half assault. Martin Ødegaard missed a promising opportunity when Jesus was denied by the sprawling Nyland. Soon after, Arsenal doubled their lead when Jesus cut inside and delivered an unstoppable curling shot into the far corner. After their remarkable comeback from a two-goal deficit to draw with Chelsea over the weekend, Arsenal was well aware that their lead was fragile. Sevilla attempted to ignite a comeback just before the hour mark when Nemanja Gudelj powered a header into the net from Ivan Rakitić’s corner.
However, unlike Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, the Spanish side couldn’t complete the comeback despite applying late pressure. This result marked Diego Alonso’s first UCL match as manager, ending in defeat. Arsenal now stands with six points, while Sevilla lags behind in third place, trailing by four points.
