It was an unlucky day for Sevilla at Vallecas, as the visitor shared points with Rayo Vallecano.
Delaney’s equalizer canceled Bebe’s stunning strike, all in the second half of the weekend game, MD 28 of La Liga.
Vallecano’s man beat Augustinsson on the right-hand side and struck a powerful effort from just inside the box, on the wing, to beat Bono at the near post. But Delaney made no mistake in putting the ball in the back of the net, after Tecatito’s assist, in the 65th minute.
VAR, not once but twice, disappointed Rafa Mir, as the Sevilla’s man ruled out one goal and one penalty appeal.
The Spanish centre-forward scored from the corner, only 10 minutes after the kick-off. But it was ruled out due to a handball by Mir, while the penalty in the second half was overturned, also by VAR.
The home team had to thank their keeper Dimitrievski, as the 28-year-old made crucial saves from Anthony Martial and Delaney in stoppage time.
Sevilla now has 56 points with 10 matches remaining, and are still second in the table. But the gap between Sevilla and top-spot Real Madrid only gets wider.
