Goalkeeper goals for the win.
Er, for the draw, as usual.

The club’s star goalkeeper delivered an equalizer at Real Valladolid on Saturday, moving Sevilla 10 points clear of fifth-place Real Sociedad with 10 matches left in their season (Real Sociedad has 11 matches left).
The late corner kick looked dead on multiple occasions before Jules Kounde swept the ball off the end line and to the keeper, who buried his chance from close-range.
“You do your job in goal and it’s very strange to see you there,” Bono said, via Football-Espana. “I looked at the coach and he told me to go up (for the corner), the chance fell well for me and I am grateful to score.”
