Group G: Sevilla and Salzburg back to back in a crazy match (1-1)
In group G of the 2021-2022 Champions League, Sevilla FC and Salzburg offered a special meeting. If the final score will not help anyone (1-1), the scenario of the first act was incredible. Indeed, 4 penalties (including three after faults on Karim Adeyemi, player of Salzburg) were whistled by the referee of the meeting, the Belarusian Alexey Kulbakov. It was during this phase of play that Luka Sucic, in the 21st minute of play, opened the scoring for Salzburg. It was also from a penalty that Ivan Rakitic, in the 41st minute, equalized in favor of the Andalusian club. A draw in the end but which was crazy via his scenario.
