Sevilla coach Lopetegui frustrated after Mallorca draw

Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui was left frustrated after their 1-1 draw with Real Mallorca.

With the scores at 1-1, Lucas Ocampos was denied a late winner by VAR.

“The spirit of VAR in the beginning was only for clear plays, and I still find [the penalty incident] to be very unclear even after seeing it 58 times," Lopetegui said afterwards. “But we have to accept it, it's been ruled out and we're sad to lose two points.

“I think in the second half we deserved the two points that escaped us. It's true that they were the better side in the first half, but in the second we deserved to turn the game around.

“We haven't done it and now we have to continue. [Mallorca] are a good team who forces you to do things very well, and I think that's been the case today. But I think that we deserved more in the second half. I just wish we had hurt Mallorca earlier."
