Sevilla’s 77 points would have made him champion five times

Seville, May 24 (EFE) .- Sevilla concluded the second season with Julen Lopetegui at the head of the team with his historical top score in the highest category, 77 points, a figure that would have given him the title of champion up to five times since that the League, in the 1995-96 campaign, changed its formula and began to award three points per game won.

In the past, in Lopetegui’s debut on the bench, the Seville team reached seventy points and qualified fourth, tied with third, Atlético de Madrid, but with worse goal difference, and in this position they have repeated that position but with seven more points, which, like last year, has earned him to qualify again with solvency for LaLiga de Campeones.

With those 77 points, Valencia was LaLiga champion in the 2003-04 campaign, but this season with that record, Sevilla has fallen nine points behind the tournament leader, Atlético de Madrid, which has added 86.

The figure has been worth the Lopetegui team to overcome by one point the record that the Nervión team had in the First Division, which had marked it in the 2014-15 campaign with Unai Emery on the bench and that they had already given to being champion in four editions of the tournament, but that then only served to be fifth behind Barcelona (94), Real Madrid (92), Atlético de Madrid (78) and Valencia (77).

Since the League of three points was established in the 1995-96 season, Barcelona was champion in 97-98 with 74 points, Deportivo de La Coruña in 99-00 with 69, Valencia in 02-01 with 75, also the team che in 2003-04 with 77 and Real Madrid in 06-07 with 76.

The Lopetegui team, in addition, added their twenty-fourth victory against Alavés in the recently concluded league edition, which also represents a historical record -there were twenty-three in the 2014-15 season- for a course that the Sevilla players have closed with five draws and nine defeats.
