VELA STARS AGAINST SEVILLA
Carlos Vela was one of the star performers for Real Sociedad in the match against Sevilla. Real Sociedad managed to win 2-0 against Sevilla in the La Liga.
Former Arsenal player Carlos Vela was instrumental in the victory for Real Sociedad. Michel's tenure at Sevilla has just begun and Carlos Vela welcomed him with the worst possible present.
Marcelino Garcia was sacked last week as the Sevilla coach after a string of poor results left the club down in the 11th position in the table. The appointment of former Real Madrid star Michel was expected to revive the fortunes for Sevilla, but it did not happen in the match against Real Sociedad. The up to date football betting odds suggest that Sevilla will continue to struggle this season.
Carlos Vela was impressive in the match from the word go. He hit the post from extremely close inside the penalty box in the 13th minute, which was the first warning for Sevilla. However, they failed to control the Mexican and paid the ultimate penalty in the 65th minute when Carlos Vela opened the scoring after an assist from Aranburu. He was once again impressive and continued to threaten the Sevilla defence. He did not take long for Carlos Vela to help Real Sociedad extended their lead, as he provided to assist for Pardo to score in the 69th minute.
The two goals in quick succession ultimately killed off Sevilla and any threat they may have posed in the closing stages of the match. After the victory, Carlos Vela was hailed as the man of the match. Even though the victory may have been a very important one, it did little to help Real Sociedad climb up the table. Even after the three points secured from the 2-0 victory over Sevilla, Real Sociedad still remain in the bottom half of the table, but without any relegation trouble for now.
