Ganso Shows Why He’s So Fun To Watch With Vintage Display Against Granada

Paulo Henrique Ganso started on Friday night for Sevilla, in their La Liga match against Granada, and while that might seem like an unremarkable piece of information, the fact that this was the Brazilian’s first appearance in the league this year makes it less so. Ganso actually hadn’t played in La Liga since last November, so […]

Malcom Continues to Produce for Bordeaux while Europe’s Elite Circle

  Malcom, Bordeaux’s 20-year-old Brazilian winger, has found himself in the news lately.

A Look at Denis Suarez and his Path to the Barcelona First Team

Barcelona is a team full of big names, and a number of them played last weekend against Sevilla. Headlined by Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez, the attacking trio otherwise known as “MSN,” and supported by the likes of Sergio Busquets, Barca’s stars led them to a 2-1 win in the league against Jorge Sampaoli’s […]

Despite the Positives, Sampaoli has to Consider Sevilla’s Defensive Shortcomings

Jorge Sampaoli has developed a reputation for high-octane football. He likes his sides to attack with speed, press with aggression and, in a more general sense, take the game up to the opposition. As the newly installed manager of Sevilla, he now has the chance to take that philosophy to Europe, and based upon his […]

How Gerard Deulofeu’s New-Found Team Ethic Is Driving His Improvement At Everton

Last season, Gerard Deulofeu was stuck on the margins at Sevilla. He only featured 17 times in the league, and only 10 of those appearances were made as a starter. His coach at the time, Unai Emery, loved his quality but couldn’t warm to his attitude. “He has incredible qualities but lacks others. Put him […]

Pellegrini’s Shift in System allows Fernandinho to Thrive against Sevilla

In recent seasons, Manuel Pellegrini has developed something of a reputation for tactical inflexibility. He’s regularly stuck to either a 4-4-2 or a 4-2-3-1, shapes which are largely similar, and though no one worries about that when they win, the opposite is true when they lose. Could the Chilean have tightened the team up defensively, […]

Michael Krohn-Dehli’s Superlative Passing Ability Propels Sevilla To Victory Over Barca

Before Barcelona’s ridiculous 5-4 UEFA Super Cup victory over Sevilla, Michael Krohn-Dehli spoke glowingly of the now Barcelona coach, Luis Enrique, who he enjoyed a season under with Celta Vigo back in 2013/14. “He was the first to put me in midfield and that’s what brought me to Sevilla. Without him I probably wouldn’t be […]

Multifaceted Steven N’Zonzi Yet Another Astute Signing by Sevilla

Steven N’Zonzi will still be donning a red and white kit next season, but not for Stoke – the club who has developed him into the midfield powerhouse he is today. Instead, N’Zonzi’s decided to head for pastures new, with the beautiful city of Seville being his destination. Sevilla’s signing of N’Zonzi represents yet another […]

A Look at Carlos Bacca and his Meandering Path to AC Milan

Carlos Bacca and Radamel Falcao both competed for Colombia in the most recent iteration of the Copa America, held in Chile.

The similarities […]

Grzegorz Krychowiak: Sevilla’s Brilliant Pole Outstanding in History Making Night in Warsaw

Sevilla’s trip to Warsaw to face Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in the Europa League final loomed as a fascinating contest between two very different, very excellent sides. For one man, in particular, the occasion’s importance was amplified. That man, of course, was Sevilla’s Grzegorz Krychowiak, for the tough midfielder was searching to become the first player from […]
