#4 Sevilla's inability to convert chances and hold a lead continues to cost them

Contrary to how the final scoreline read, Sevilla were the better side in the first half and did, by far, create better chances. The best of which, came in the 20th minute when Pablo Sarabia was put on goal inside the box.

Instead of coolly slotting the ball home, Sarabia decided to try and artistically place it into the top right corner, subsequently going on to miss an absolute sitter that would've undeniably given Sevilla an earlier lead and perhaps, far greater momentum.

The hosts mustered a total of 9 shots, 4 of which were on target - so there's no problem with chance creation. What will deeply concern manager Vincenzo Montella, though, is that the conversion rate just isn't good enough.

Just days after relinquishing a 2-0 lead over runaway LaLiga leaders, Barcelona, Vincenzo Montella's side threw away yet another crucial lead against another big side last night, and with the second leg to be played in a week from now at the Allianz Arena, Montella may not have enough time for damage control.
