Sevilla goalkeeper Yassine Bounou has urged his teammates not to give up on chasing the La Liga title.

Their hearts were broken when Inaki Williams scored an additional time winner to give Athletic Bilbao a narrow 1-0 win against the title-chasers on Monday evening.

Sevilla remain in fourth position on the log standings with 70 points from 34 games played. Only six points separate first and fourth with Atletico Madrid leading the pack with 76 points.

Real Madrid and Barcelona sit in second and third place respectively with 74 points each.

Lopetegui’s side went into the encounter unbeaten in eight games, but their wings were clipped by Bilbao who have now moved up to ninth spot on the table after the win.

Speaking to the club’s website after the game, Bounou said he is confident that they can get the needed results and clinch the title by the end of the season.

“Right now, I am disappointed because we were very excited to remain hooked.

“We made a very complete match, we put up with the whole game and in a transition, we ended up on the losing side. The team will continue to fight until the end, however.

“We had good opportunities, our opponent’s goalkeeper made good saves and the team cannot be blamed for anything. We will continue to fight to improve the fourth position.”

Another Moroccan international has been a revelation for the Spanish outfit this season. Youssef En-Nesyri has netted 17 league goals in 34 appearances so far this season. The striker was brought in as a back-up option for Luuk de Jong, but he has forced his way into the starting line-up.

On Sunday evening, the Red Whites will square off against Real Madrid away from home. A loss against Los Blancos would end their title aspirations.
