After three consecutive titles in the Europa League, Seville was expected to upgrade the previous season, especially after signing coach Jorge Sampaolli. This really happened. The team reached the first places of the Spanish league in the first half of the year and advanced to the Champions League knockout stage.
However, his second half of the season was below what was expected. This culminated with Sampaoli leaving the command of the club. He preferred to accept the invitation to take charge of Argentina in the qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
To resume the growth, the direction opted for another Argentine coach. After three seasons at Celta, Eduardo Berizzo decided to change the air. As the Spanish Championship has not yet started, he did not have his work put to the test in official matches. Made seven preparatory friendly matches. He won four, drew one and lost twice.
In the most recent against Roma on August 10, he won 2-1 and gave indications of the team he plans to put on the field on Wednesday. That does not include Brazilian midfielder Paulo Henrique Ganso. After having his name listed on a possible layoff list, the former São Paulo and Santos player has been kept in the cast, but only follows as an option on the bench. For the debut, Berizzo will not be able to count on three athletes of the squad. They are in the infirmary the Portuguese defender Daniel Carriço and the socks Pablo Sarabia and Franco Vazquez.
