Last weekend, Spanish football legend Joaquin was defeated in the the ‘Gran Derbi’ of Seville, but still lost something else. While the match between Sevilla and Betis was played, the alarm of the footballer’s house was activated, so automatically the Police join the mansion, as the Diario de Sevilla explains.
The alarm alerted a nearby civil guard who instantly made his way to the property but the thieves had already fled. Sources close to the athlete assure the aforementioned media that they have not taken “practically nothing”, and that the damage does not go beyond the disorder and destruction of a door.
The Spanish police is investigating the case, but it is still not known exactly what could have been taken from the home, nor has there been any arrests in this regard.
It is not the first time a footballer has been the victim of burglary while playing in a match. Joaquin has not expressed himself, but his fans have already wanted to transmit their encouragement and support through social networks.
Sevilla beats Betis in the ‘Gran Derbi’
Meanwhile, Sevilla beat local rivals Real Betis in a thrilling derby to move back into the Champions League places in Spain. Munir el Haddadi headed the hosts into the lead from Pablo Sarabia’s cross before Giovani lo Celso swept Betis level.
Sarabia volleyed Sevilla ahead from Ben Yedder’s cross and Franco Vazquez smashed in a brilliant 25-yard effort. Cristian Tello curled home a wonderful free-kick for Betis to set up a tense finale but Sevilla held on.
There were nine bookings in a typically hard-fought Andalusian derby, with six of them to Sevilla players (3-2).
