Navas: Sevilla suffered injustice

Jesus Navas has described Sevilla’s 2-0 derby defeat to Malaga as ‘unfair’ and insists their opponents were fortunate to win.

Despite a strong first-half performance from the hosts, los Boquerones took the lead through Martin Demichelis soon after the break before Eliseu sealed the win with a penalty in an incident that saw Federico Fazio sent off.

Navas stressed that the loss was extremely harsh on his side.

“The first half was very good and Malaga did not even create a single chance,” the 27-year-old midfielder told reporters.

“We tried to force the issue but they found the goal early in the second half and it was unfair. After that brilliant first half we deserved more, but Malaga took their chances and that was the key today.”

Malaga’s Eliseu broadly agreed with Navas’ assessment, confessing that fortune played no small part in the victory.

“I think we were very lucky in the first half,” the Portuguese midfielder admitted.

“These derbies are always difficult. Sevilla started the match very well. They created many chances and played a good first half, and we were lucky to go to the break 0-0. But then we organised ourselves very well and ended up playing a great match.

“We started the second half better. We were more compact and that was the key to the three points today for Malaga.”
