FC Sevilla – the revelation of the season.
The Spanish team managed to gather 39 points in the 18 matches and occupies the second position in the ranking.
The decision of coach Unai Emery to leave to Paris Saint-Germain was a shock for the Spanish supporters.
However, it seems that the separation from the 45-year-old technician was not such a powerful blast for the European League winner.
At least, this is what we concluded in the last three seasons.
At the leading board of the Andalusian team came Jorge Sampaoli.
The start was quite rocky for the Argentinian coach.
However, FC Sevilla is starting to see the light from the back of the tunnel.
The season for FC Sevilla started at Trondheim against Real Madrid, in front of 17939 spectators.
Unfortunately, Sampaoli missed his first chance to win a trophy on European territory,
Victoria Los Blancos served a goal in the 119’ minute. A few minutes earlier, Sergio Ramos managed to score an equal in the 93’ minute.
Although Football enthusiasts admit that FC Sevilla is a force in Europe, Unai Emery is not sharing the same opinion.
The things started to change under the leading of the new coach.
Sevilla is qualified on the second position in the ‘H’ group in the most important football competition in Europe.
Meanwhile, Sampaoli managed to stop Real’s incredible string of 40 victories.
For Sevilla’s supporters, the title in the first Spanish league is a long forgotten memory.
71 years have passed since the last success in Primera.
However, the mission doesn’t seem that impossible now.
