Seville leans on history to dream of a glorious outcome

The Andalusian team has an outstanding data whenever it exceeded the round of 16 in the UEL. His next step will be against Wolverhampton.

Seville aspires to raise the trophy of the UEFA Europa League. There are three steps that separate him from glory, since he is in the quarterfinals, he will be measured this Tuesday with Wolverhampton and his level shown in the previous instance against Roma, as well as in La Liga (he was 4th), generates enthusiasm in the team.

The recent victory against the Italian capital team has a very important symbolic charge, since overcoming the round of 16 has always been synonymous with success for the rojiblanco team: on the five occasions they managed to pass that round, they finished with the cup in her hands.

In addition, the solvency with which the Andalusian team achieved the victory, and the good game displayed, reaffirmed it as one of the great favorites for the title together with Inter Milan and Manchester United, the other great names in the current European competition.

The story excites him

In their first triumph in 2006, the team led at that time by Juande Ramos lost 1-0 in the first leg against Lille and, to reach the quarterfinals, had to come back in the second leg in Spain with a suffered 2 -0 thanks to goals from Kanouté and Luis Fabiano. It was the first stone to build the first continental success.

A year later, Nervión’s men repeated their title but in the second round they had to achieve the most difficult yet, since to eliminate Shakhtar they had to resort to a goal from their goalkeeper, Andrés Palop, in the last minute that forced an extension in which they ended passing through both Chevantón.

Seven years later, Sevilla would again exceed the eighth and, as tradition dictates, it was a heart attack tie in which they had to come back at Benito Villamarín against their eternal rival. He harvested a 0-2 in the first leg against his eternal rival, Real Betis, and advanced in the penalty shootout.

In 2014/15 and 2015/16, Unai Emery’s men did manage to qualify more comfortably to the quarterfinals after two comfortable ties against Villarreal and Basel, with overall victories 5-2 and 3-0.

The victory against Roma unleashed euphoria in Sevilla, who already dreams of a European feat for their team and the precedents suggest that the motivation that surrounds the Nervión club is not far from unfounded.
