The match pitted two sides in the title race in La Liga against each other just a day after the Blaugrana’s title hopes suffered a major blow as they were held to a scoreless draw at home to Atletico Madrid.
That result left the Catalan giants needing Atleti to drop points in two of their remaining three matches – with Koeman’s side needing to win all three of their outings – if they are to hope of winning the league, while also hoping Madrid drop more points in the run-in too.
Sunday night’s 2-2 draw between Los Blancos and the Andalusian side almost definitely rules Sevilla out of the frame while also was a blow for the reigning champions.
However, Koeman has revealed he instead watched a Serie A match instead, as he was too nervous.
He told reporters on Monday, as per El Mundo Deportivo: “I watched the first 20 minutes of Madrid and then I watched Milan against Juventus instead because it makes me a little nervous to see the other teams. I’d rather watch another game and know the result when it ends.”
