The Yellow Submarine fell 2-1 to Real Sociedad and the team from Seville confirmed their return to the maximum continental competition.
Seville will play the Champions League 2020/21. The defeat of Villarreal before Real society confirmed the classification of the team trained by Julen Lopetegui, which will accompany Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid as representatives of The league.
The Andalusian cast easily beat Mallorca this Sunday and hoped to confirm their presence in the Champions League by scoring at the Reale Stadium against Real Sociedad, but it was precisely the Basque team, pressed for their fight to enter the Europa League, who did Seville a favor and he advanced the good news to them.
It is the fifth time in the 21st century that Seville will play the Champions League. The first came in the 06/07 season, when it was third, a brand that was repeated by the team coached by Manolo Jiménez in the 08/09 campaign.
Then we had to wait for the 09/10 season to be fourth again, but in the Champions League preview the team was left out. Later, until the 16/17 campaign with Sampaoli on the bench, a new direct classification would not arrive at the maximum continental appointment.
