There were chances for both sides but neither could break the stalemate</div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><strong>The fans didn't hesitate to make their opinions known come half-time.</strong> Above all, the Sevilla faithful demanded a more determined Sevilla in the second half. And though Jason was the first to try his luck, Sevilla entered into their most dominant period of the game come the restart. Attacks were still disjointed but with full-backs pushing on and Franco Vázquez giving the side more presence, <strong>Levante could not press as high up the pitch as they had done in the first-half</strong>. Navas came on to replace Gabriel Mercado and become Sevilla's all-time leader in club appearances - overtaking Pablo Blanco for his 416<sup>th </sup>match. </p> <blockquote> <p>As the minutes went by Sevilla became more dominant but could not beat Oier</p> </blockquote> <p>Throwing everything onto the pitch for the win, Berizzo replaced Correa with Muriel with ten minutes to go. Despite the rain, the Nervión stands pushed their side to fight for deadlock-breaking goal. Ben Yedder, Sarabia and Escudero came closest but Oier was equal to every effort <strong>and frustrated the home side with save after save</strong>. Four minutes of added time were not enough for the Nervionenses to find a goal.</p> <p>Sevilla's last home match before Christmas, though a trip <strong>to the Anoeta is still on the cards next Wednesday at 21:30pm. </strong>There, Sevilla face <strong>Real Sociedad </strong>in a clash that will see the away side without <strong>Clement Lenglet </strong>- the first Sevilla player to miss a game through suspension this season. It will be Sevilla's last chance at three points in 2017 before competition returns in January after the winter break. </p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/news_page/public/news/image/sevlev01.JPG?itok=f5eH6gS3" width="1115" height="634" alt="Mercado del Sevilla FC ante el Levante UD" title="Mercado cabecea un balón que acabó en el poste" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-news-page" /> </div> </div> </div> </div> Fri, 15 Dec 2017 21:50:37 +0000 r.venegas_192 31331 at http://www.sevillafc.es BERIZZO RALLIES THE TROOPS AT THE SPORTS VILLAGE http://www.sevillafc.es/en/actual/news/berizzo-rallies-troops-sports-village <div class="panel-1col" > <div class="panel-panel"> <div class="field field--name-field-news-lead field--type-string-long field--label-hidden field__item">The manager gave a team talk and worked on tactics with his players</div> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/news_page/public/news/image/BERIZZO1_0.JPG?itok=Ml4AofdW" width="1115" height="634" alt="Arrival of Berizzo to the Meliá Lebreros" title="Chairman José Castro greets Eduardo Berizzo" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-news-page" /> </div> </div> </div> </div> Fri, 15 Dec 2017 13:54:14 +0000 prensa2_189 31326 at http://www.sevillafc.es NEW SPONSORSHIP AGREEMENT WITH CRUZCAMPO TO LAST 5 SEASONS http://www.sevillafc.es/en/actual/news/new-sponsorship-agreement-cruzcampo-last-5-seasons <div class="panel-1col" > <div class="panel-panel"> <div class="field field--name-field-news-lead field--type-string-long field--label-hidden field__item">The agreement, signed by Chairmen of Sevilla FC, José Castro, and Heineken España, Richard Weissend, strengthens the brand&#039;s commitment to the Club</div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><strong>The signing of the sponsorship deal saw both Sevilla FC Chairman, José Castro, and HEINKEKEN España Chairman, Richard Weissend, present. </strong></p> <p><strong>Sevilla FC Chairman spoke about his happiness that</strong><strong> "two Sevillian </strong><strong>organisations could</strong><strong> continue to work </strong><strong>together</strong><strong> over many years</strong>.

Levante have lost the same number of games as Sevilla in the league (5) this season</div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><strong>Lopéz Muñiz' </strong>men started very well this season, picking up two difficult draws away from home - 1-1 at the <b>Bernabéu and away at Valencia </b>- but since September have managed just <strong>one win in 10 matches </strong>(0-2 against Las Palmas) - with <strong>five losses and four draws</strong>. They have picked up more draws than any other side in La Liga (7).</p> <p>Three Sevillistas with very different trajectories fill their ranks. One of the most crucial pieces of the Levante puzzle this year has been <strong>José Gómez Campaña</strong>, the only player to have started every league game (barring Chema). For their own part, <strong>Iván López, "Ivi" </strong>(a known academy goalscorer in Sevilla) has played 13 matches - despite starting just six - and has scored <strong>two goals (one of which was in the Bernabéu)</strong>. The third ex-Sevillista is full-back <b>Antonio Luna</b>, who has struggled for a place and has played just four times - starting in three. Levante's two top scorers are <strong>Morales and Bardhi</strong>, who both have four; the latter does not travel to Nervión.    </p> <blockquote> <p>Three ex-Sevillistas return: Campaña, an undisputed starter; Ivi, a rotation option; and Luna, who is rarely used</p> </blockquote> <p>An anticipated match this Friday that <b>can see no complacency on the part of Sevilla</b>. Regardless of the opponent, who will always be worthy of respect, it's a clash that should see the home side do their job convincingly. Leave behind memories of the Bernabéu, give the world a better idea of what <strong>Sevillismo means</strong>,<strong> </strong>win, continue undefeated in Nervión and finish 2017 in the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán as we mean to go on.

qualification </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>In the 16/17 season <strong>we achieved our third consecutive qualification to the Champions League - an historic feat for the club</strong> which finds itself more and more comfortable in the dizzying heights of European football. </p> <p>We did it, as well, via a fourth-place<strong> finish in the league which has eluded us since 09/10</strong>. We also managed our <strong>second best points tally in history</strong>. </p> <p>And we did it all <strong>whilst fighting for leadership for much of a campaign that was very long for us </strong>but one which saw performances excite and enthral us by like very few others in the history of our team.</p> <p>In the <strong>Champions League we surpassed what we did in 15/16 and got through the group stages, </strong>even though - like in 07/08 and 09/10 - the excitement of the quarter finals evaded us thanks to an opponent that we always felt superior to but did things more efficiently when it mattered. In that first leg the missed opportunities, missed penalies... That's football and you learn from those blows. In that area, it pains me to say, we still have work to do. Finally, in the Copa del Rey our adventure was short, crossing paths with <strong>Real Madrid </strong>who all but ended the tie in the first leg. </p> <blockquote> <p>"Krichowyak and Gameiro, painful departures but outstanding econonomically speaking"</p> </blockquote> <p>Honestly, I think we can feel proud of the success that our First Team had, especially given that on a day-to-day basis, the team and the squad had a number of complications.</p> <p>After three and a half years with <strong>Unai Emery </strong>at the helm, the gamble of the board, led by <strong>Monchi, </strong>was to give the reigns of the First Team to <strong>Jorge Sampaoli</strong>, a coach who came as an acclaimed Copa América champion with Chile. Sampaoli came in with a successful South American footballing history but had never managed in Europe. </p> <p>It was <strong>a risky gamble, yes but above all an ambitious gamble, </strong>just as we were ambitious with our squad-building. Again we sold important players, in this case: <strong>Krychowiak</strong> and <strong>Kevin Gameiro</strong>.</p> <p>Painful <strong>departures but outstanding ones </strong>in economic terms, which has continued <strong>to follow a model of turnover </strong>that has led us to success at the start of this decade: sell very well to invest better, making the best possible squad available to consolidate ourselves in sporting terms.</p> <blockquote> <p>"There were times where this chairman had count to a thousand rather than ten for the good of the club"</p> </blockquote> <p>Thanks to these sales and the financial wellbeing of the club we were able to make a lot of reinforcements and we turned a notch up on our sporting project. Of course, that wasn't simple, because very few believed in the viability of a financial project led by Jorge Sampaoli. <strong>The team struggled to get going but they eventually did and in some fashion</strong>. We put together wins, with vibrancy and goals - a lot of goals. And for much of the campaign, we dreamed of achievements that were beyond us. </p> <p>We ended up fading but make no mistake - the road was marvellous. Marvellous and difficult, very difficult because it was a campaign <strong>not exempt from rumours </strong>surrounding our coach, <strong>Jorge Sampaoli </strong>and our Director of Football, <strong>Ramón Rodríguez Verdejo</strong>, Monchi. </p> <p><strong>The Argentina National Side, FC Barcelona, Roma, Argentina again. This is the price you pay for being at the top</strong>. Being at the top brings with it the disadvantage of always being in the shop window of the footballing world... In the shop window for all our professionals as became clear. </p> <p>On occasions, <strong>this chairman didn't have to count to ten but to a thousand for the good of the club </strong>and all to, above all else, prioritise the performance of the First Team squad and the achievement of objectives. <b>And I don't regret it because it's a responsibility that being chairman of Sevilla FC demands </b>and I take it on. <strong>And prudence shouldn't be confused with tight-fistedness. </strong></p> <blockquote> <p>"Prudence shouldn't be confused with tight-fistedness"</p> </blockquote> <p><strong>Sampaoli </strong>left like he had to, as was stipulated in his contract. And <strong>Monchi</strong> also left, as he wanted to and as - above all - he deserved after nearly 30 years at the club and 17 years as Director of Football. We didn't just do everything possible, we did everything impossible to try and keep him... but he decided to leave and in the wake of that decision, we rolled out the red carpet and gave him our thanks from the bottom of our hearts. <strong>Monchi will always be one of our own and this will always be his home</strong>.</p> <p>We endured with success nevertheless, <strong>in a season where speculation about the future of our professionals was a constant we had to deal with</strong>.</p> <p>We also dealt with the <strong>complex reality that was the eradication of insults at our stadium in a bid to avoid fines </strong>and in extreme circumstances the partial or full closure of our stadium. </p> <p>The incident of the eve of our Champions League clash with Juventus forced the <strong>Commission against Violence to impose non-negotiable measures </strong>that were not accepted by our fans. </p> <p><strong>The board that presided at the time fulfilled their orders </strong>even though in doing so, they created a conflict with part of the fanbase.  </p> <blockquote> <p>"Violent fans and violent behaviour have no place in the club but neither do double standards"</p> </blockquote> <p>However, <strong>after coming to terms with what happened in other stadiums with banned banners and feeling discriminated against when compared to other cases, we decided to allow the return of banners to Biris, </strong>having found no clear legal grounds against. </p> <p>It's clear that that episode didn't benefit our sporting interests but as chairman I tried to always act with the responsibility my position demands, always safeguarding the interests of the club. </p> <p>That being said, I want to reemphasise commitment to eradicating any form of violence in our stadium because I'm convinced you can support Sevilla without insulting opponents. </p> <p><strong>Violent fans and violent behaviour have no place in Sevilla FC but nor do discrimination or double standards</strong>.</p> <p>In that regard, I want to <strong>recognise that all Sevillistas have understood that insulting doesn't just not help but harms us gravely</strong>. Insults at the Sánchez-Pizjuán are now old news and I think that has shown the maturity of our fanbase. Let's continue like this because that's what will serve us best.</p> <p>...</p> <p>I am the first to highlight <strong>the importance of the demands of our surroundings</strong>. When I speak about surroundings I talk specifically about the fans and the press.  </p> <p>Those demands, which we are always grateful for, I consider <strong>one of the keys to our success </strong>because <b>they force us to never rest on our laurels </b>- they push us to be <strong>the antithesis of mediocrity</strong>. </p> <blockquote> <p>"Let's not let those demands distract us from our achievements"</p> </blockquote> <p>But please, <strong>let's not let those demands stop us from appreciating what we've achieved</strong>, which in the opinion of this chairman is beyond what we could have imagined for three sparkling years. Let's not let demands stop us appreciating what we enjoy today. </p> <p>Without going too deep, <strong>for the second year running we're in the last-16 of the best club-competition in the world</strong>, the only other Spanish side alongside Real Madrid and Barcelona. </p> <p><strong>We aren't Madrid nor Barcelona, nor Atlético Madrid - we don't even have the financial potential of Valencia</strong>... We aren't them. We are Sevilla FC and with a genuine model of turnover  we break boundaries and compete not just at the top but right at the top of our capability.</p> <p><b>We are a unique success story in Europe </b>because nobody has gifted us anything. Never surrendering and competing at all times is part of Sevilla FC's DNA. </p> <p>That's why it hurts so much to see the team do what it did at the Bernabéu this Saturday - it's a <strong>stain, albeit a big stain </strong>- but it doesn't taint <strong>the work we have done in past years</strong>. </p> <blockquote> <p>"We are Sevilla FC and our model of genuine turnover breaks barriers and allows us to compete at the top"</p> </blockquote> <p>I think that the respect Sevilla FC has ground out in continental football is something that should make us feel special. Don't doubt it, we are special. <strong>We are Sevilla FC and we are all fortunate to be Sevillistas</strong>. </p> <p>...</p> <p><strong>In this new 17/18 season we're looking to reaffirm qualification </strong>and even do better, being always conscious of the difficulty of such an enterprise. </p> <p>Monchi left and the <strong>club opted for continuity, giving control of directing football to Óscar Arias</strong>, who has led our sporting project this season, supplying <strong>Eduardo Berizzo's </strong>First Team squad. </p> <p>After these first four months of competition we can say with total honesty that the team <strong>needs to improve</strong>, <strong>even more so after what we saw at the Bernabéu</strong>. <strong>But it's in precisely that margin of difference that we need to find our impetus</strong>, because despite having suffered three unacceptable and unseemly losses, <strong>we're fifth in the league and three points off our target, having gone away to the most difficult stadiums, and in the round of 16 of the Champions League for the second consecutive year </strong>- an historic feat that we've never achieved before.</p> <blockquote> <p>"The team needs to improve but we are fifth and in the round of 16 for the Champions League"</p> </blockquote> <p>Though I know I'm here to talk about the 16/17 season exclusively, I would like to stop for a moment to talk about <b>Eduardo Berizzo</b>. His efforts in charge of the team have been questioned almost from the beginning but the <strong>confidence that this chairman and the whole organisation has in his work is still at its maximum</strong>. </p> <p>The fluidity and consistency of our game will come but for the time being I'm happy with the results and with the quality of the coach as a human being - <b>who I'm convinced is going to triumph at Sevilla FC</b>. The mental strength he is showing to <strong>fight his illness is admirable</strong>. Those of us who know him and believe in him know that he's going to come back from this even stronger than ever before. We are hoping to see him back in the dugout and very soon. </p> <p><strong>Sevilla has to give him time </strong>because I am convinced that performances will go from strength to strength to strength. But above all else - and this is what I want to be clear on - <strong>we have to give him stability</strong>. </p> <blockquote> <p>"Confidence in Berizzo is still at a maximum. I am convinced he will triumph at Sevilla"</p> </blockquote> <p>...</p> <p>At this point I don't want to forget the important support our fanbase gave us over the last campaign. <strong>I want to thank Sevillistas, especially our season-ticket holders, who regularly fill out the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán and make it an all but impenetrable fortress</strong>. It's not in vain that we're a year without defeat there. Thanks also to the Sevillistas who travel away and accompany the team wherever it plays. It's exciting to remember matches last season where we were playing hundreds or thousands of kilometers away from our stadium but it felt like we were at home.</p> <p>I am one for thinking that <strong>the team is a reflection of its fanbase</strong>. <strong>And our fans are loyal, completely loyal but also ambitious and always demanding</strong>. That's why the club should always thank the fans; their bite makes sure we always give 120%. </p> <blockquote> <p>"The club should always thank the fans; their bite makes sure we always give 120%"</p> </blockquote> <p>Thank you also to our employees, because we who experience the club day by day know that behind the eleven players that step onto the field every Sunday there is a lot of work and dedication and diverse facets that mean the atmosphere is advantageous and the conditions are at an opimum for our players to win.</p> <p><font face="Liberation Serif, serif"><font size="3"><font style="font-size: 12pt">I can only say <b>that I feel proud of being at the helm of a ship full of so many valuable and esteemed professionals. </b></font></font></font></p> <p><font face="Liberation Serif, serif"><font size="3"><font style="font-size: 12pt">I don’t want to finish without making constructive-criticism. <b>I’m sure we do things badly</b><span style="font-weight:normal">.

Ironically, it was through Sevilla's least convincing effort that the equaliser arrived. The ball fell to Ganso after Correa had won it back and the Brazilian midfielder sent off a curling effort from 20 yards. Though his strike may have had spin, Handanovic would have been disappointed to see the ball slip from his grasp. Sevilla had their equaliser. <strong>The equaliser seemed to emphasise the home side's loss of conviction, </strong>but an opportunity to secure a win did not present itself despite Navas, another of Marcucci's substitutions, coming out fighting. </p> <p>The spectacularly wide goal margin in the Liverpool Spartak clash secured Sevilla FC's place in their group and therefore saw them qualified for the last 16, <a href="http://www.sevillafc.es/actualidad/noticias/los-seis-posibles-rivales-en-el-sorteo-de-los-octavos-de-champions-league"><strong>with the draw scheduled for next Monday at 12pm</strong></a> in Nyon.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/news_page/public/news/image/sarabiamaribor.JPG?itok=uE0dj5mi" width="1115" height="634" alt="Sarabia del Sevilla FC ante el Maribor" title="Sarabia dispara y Handanovic despeja" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-news-page" /> </div> </div> </div> </div> Wed, 06 Dec 2017 21:21:02 +0000 r.venegas_192 31210 at http://www.sevillafc.es SIX POSSIBLE OPPONENTS FOR CHAMPIONS LEAGUE LAST-16 http://www.sevillafc.es/en/actual/news/six-possible-opponents-champions-league-last-16 <div class="panel-1col" > <div class="panel-panel"> <div class="field field--name-field-news-lead field--type-string-long field--label-hidden field__item">England is the most likely destination - with Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham all potential opponents - though Emery&#039;s PSG, Mochi&#039;s Roma and Adriano, Medel and Negredo&#039;s Besiktas could all be drawn too</div> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/news_page/public/news/image/sorteochampions_0.jpg?itok=TUixc8Fv" width="1115" height="634" alt="" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-news-page" /> </div> </div> </div> </div> Wed, 06 Dec 2017 21:06:24 +0000 r.venegas_192 31208 at http://www.sevillafc.es WIN WITHOUT HESITATION AGAINST A MARIBOR SIDE WHO WILL FIGHT TO THE END http://www.sevillafc.es/en/actual/news/win-without-hesitation-against-maribor-side-who-will-fight-end <div class="panel-1col" > <div class="panel-panel"> <div class="field field--name-field-news-lead field--type-string-long field--label-hidden field__item">The exciting Group Stage of the Champions League comes to an end.

The French-Tunisian striker has 6 goals in the Group Stages of the competition, eight including the two he scored in the playoffs for qualification. <strong>Escudero </strong>was the other man to score two in the very same playoffs - like Ben Yedder - scoring one away and one at home. Those are the only two players with more than one goal, with <strong>Correa, Lenglet, Kjaer, Banega and Pizarro </strong>sharing the rest. With regards to regular starters, <strong>Sergio Rico, Escudero, Banega and Ben Yedder </strong>have been in the starting XI for all five group stage games.</p> <p>The Champions League last 16 is just 90 minutes away from <strong>Sevilla FC</strong>. If it is to be reached, we will have to confront the game with all the determination and bravery of champions, whilst maintaining <strong>precision, caution and a constant guard against complacency</strong>.
