After returning from the break, Athletic Bilbao continued to attack from the flank by Nico Williams and Berenguer, which made Sevilla's back line tremble. In the 73rd minute, Vesga scored a long-range shot from outside the penalty area to tie the score to 1-1.


Sevilla had a chance to overtake in the 90th minute, but Lamela's excellent opportunity was successfully destroyed by Herrera with a foul outside the penalty area. Herrera was then sent off and Unai Simon saved Delaney's goal from close range in stoppage time.


In the end, Sevilla ended the first game after the coaching change with a 1-1 score.
