Goals:

GOAL! ATLETICO MADRID 1-0 SEVILLA! Gimenez gives Atletico the lead right on the half-hour! The Atletico centre-back connects with Carrasco’s corner at the near post, peeling away from his marker to power a header past Bounou.

GOAL! ATLETICO MADRID 1-1 SEVILLA! En-Nesyri grabs the goal that could secure Sevilla’s Champions League qualification! Atletico doesn’t fully clear Sevilla’s latest corner, and the Moroccan arrives from deep to nod in Torres’ teasing cross from the right.

What does it mean? Mission accomplished for Sevilla

For Sevilla, El-Nesyri’s goal fended off the worry that they would go to the season’s final day in danger of being pipped to fourth place by city rivals Real Betis.

It is four draws in a row for Julen Lopetegui’s team, and the coach’s position is reportedly in doubt, but this outcome provided cause for celebration.

Sevilla led Betis by three points going to the 38th game, but they have the better head-to-head record so they will be playing Europe’s elite next term. They sit just a point behind Atletico, going to the last round.

Atletico has not lost any of their last 13 home matches against Sevilla now in LaLiga (W6 D7).

In terms of the number of games, this equals their best unbeaten run at home against them in the competition, achieved between 1958 and 1970 (G13 W10 D3), but failing to see this one out will surely irk Diego Simeone.

So, what’s next?

Both Atletico and Sevilla can enjoy their final games, then, knowing their places in next season’s Champions League are assured.
