The build up to the game was disrupted when Ozil broke his leg adding him to are already lengthy Injury list. He had been playing but could be covered by The Ox so we were not too worried.
The biggest change was to go without a ball winning midfielder as we played Carzorla and Ramsey together. They both operate as playmakers and we decided to use this to really penetrate the Sevilla middle.
Other than that Selection was as you were.
As you can see from the results to the right the game went off with a bang. 3 nil was above my expectations with the one sour note of an injury to Higuain but Giroud was among the scorers once he replaced him.
We have added the highlights of the game below and to say our gameplan worked is putting it mildly.
The possession was key as we put Sevilla to the sword and finished second in the group behind Juve. Not a perfect result as we would have a harder draw but pleasing to jump this potentially devastating elimination from Europe's premier competition.
