Sevilla and Real Sociedad will repeat their European adventures next season. Julen Lopetegui's team managed to draw against Atlético de Madrid at the Metropolitano thanks to Youssef En-Nesyri. The Moroccan striker's headed goal five minutes from the end (1-1) is worth a ticket to the Champions League for the third consecutive season, a pass that the colchoneros had already obtained the previous day.
The last game in the rojiblanco fiefdom served to fire Luis Suárez after two seasons at the Madrid club. The teammates did pass the Uruguayan in this case after the game, when he was honored by the club and cheered by the fans.
“I gave myself 200% to a club that opened the door for me at a difficult time. I will never forget the affection of the people. I will always be grateful and wherever I go there will be one more Atlético fan because I will carry him in my heart”, said an emotional Suárez, a key player in the league last season and who was never able to say goodbye to the Camp Nou.
Sevilla's tie left their eternal rival with no options to hunt him down in a Champions League position. Betis won with a brace from Juanmi (2-0), but will have to settle for the Europa League. His presence in the competition had already been assured by winning the Copa del Rey.
Real Sociedad will accompany the Betis in the Europa League. Imanol Alguacil's men prevailed in the direct duel against Villarreal. A goal from Coquelin gave the groguets the lead, but Real turned the score around at La Ceràmica with goals from Isak and Zubimendi (1-2).
Unai Emery's team, exhausted after the effort in the Champions League, will play on the last day with Athletic to qualify for the Conference League, the third continental competition. The lions were one point away after defeating Osasuna in San Mamés (2-0).
