In a match of the 30th round of the Spanish football championship, Sevilla and Barcelona played without goals at the Sanchez Pizjuan stadium.
The match ended without goals, but on the field, it was not very peaceful.
The referee’s compensation for the first half was played when, after a foul on him, Messi lost control, went wild and ran his hands into Sevilla’s stopper Diego Carlos.
After Messi pushed him, Carlos collapsed as if he had been run over by a tank, and the players of both teams immediately made a fuss and there was almost no physical conflict.
Barcelona pressed Sevilla from the first minute, but the home team had the first real opportunity in the game in the 11th minute. However, Kounde shot next to the goal, with no change in the score.
Ten minutes later, Messi threatened to score with a free kick, but also without changing the result.
Barca had the best chance of the first half in the 25th minute when Suarez shot and goalkeeper Vaclik defused the ball, but Braithwaite did not manage in the continuation.
In the 55th minute, Sevilla shot for the first time within the goal. It was Ocampos who shot, but Ter Stegen reacted well.
In the 73rd minute, Messi tried again from a free kick, but the Czech goalkeeper was ready.
Barca could have won in the 88th minute too. Jordi Alba kicked from the right side, and Suarez shot the ball, but it went over the goal.
On the other hand, Sevilla had a great opportunity in the last moments of the match, but Ter Stegen reacted superbly to Sergio Reguilon’s shot.
With this 0-0 result, Barca opened the opportunity for Real Madrid to reach the Catalan giants with a victory against Real Sociedad.
