    Sevilla not looking to sign Chelsea’s Fabregas – Sampaoli

    Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli has said any coach would love to have Cesc Fabregas at his disposal but insists he is not thinking about trying to bring the Chelsea playmaker back to Spain.

    Fabregas has played only sporadically under new Blues manager Antonio Conte this season and has been linked with a possible move to Europa League holders Sevilla in January.

    However, Sampaoli, who has made an impressive start since taking charge of the Andalusian side in the summer, has played down […]

    Sevilla 1-2 Barcelona: Messi and Suarez fire Catalan comeback

    The Blaugrana remain two points behind Real Madrid after carving out a win from behind over their fellow Liga challengers, who opened the scoring through Vitolo.

    Lionel Messi scored once and created another to help Barcelona to a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Sevilla in Sunday’s La Liga encounter at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, with Luis Suarez netting the winner in the 61st minute.

    Second-placed Barcelona narrowed the gap with leaders Real Madrid to two points heading into the international break and went […]

    Samir Nasri takes Xavi’s crown as the Champions League’s new pass master

    Samir Nasri’s attempts to get back to best remained on track with Sevilla as he struck the winner in the 1-0 victory over Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday evening.

    The 29-year-old featured just 13 times for Manchester City last season, while he was excluded for part of Pep Guardiola’s pre-season camp this summer after returning from holiday overweight.

    But in his loan spell at Sevilla, the French midfielder has become a key part of their midfield under Jorge Sampaoli.

    And in their win over […]

    Manchester City have announced that Samir Nasri has joined Sevilla on a season-long loan.

    The French midfielder was said to be close to a move to Turkish side Besiktas, but Sevilla were able to capture him ahead of the close of the transfer window.

    Sevilla sporting director Monchi revealed that Nasri is a player they have “been chasing all summer”, but […]

    Barcelona 3-0 Sevilla (agg. 5-0): Arda at the double as Catalans romp to Supercopa victory

    Luis Enrique’s men held a commanding lead from the opener and made sure of the triumph with a pair from the Turkey international in a clash that was never in doubt.

    Arda Turan gave further encouraging signs he can turn his Barcelona career around with a brace as Luis Enrique’s side eased to a 3-0 win over Sevilla in the Supercopa de Espana second leg at Camp Nou.

    The Turkey international’s displays came in for regular criticism last season as he failed […]

    Sevilla 0-2 Barcelona: Luis Suarez and Munir El Haddadi on target as Barca take command in Spanish Super Cup

    The only surprise was that it took three attempts. Luis Suarez wasted two good chances before he eventually found the net but eventually the forward found his shooting boots, with Munir El Haddadi adding a second to give Barcelona a commanding lead in the Spanish Super Cup final.

    A poor first-half display gave way to a much improved second, with Barcelona slowly finding their rhythm as Sevilla faded away, in a repeat of last season’s Copa del Rey final that ended […]

    LIVE: Real Madrid 3-2 Sevilla (AET): Dani Carvajal nets dramatic last-gasp extra-time goal to seal European Super Cup win

    You can always rely on Sergio Ramos. Real Madrid’s captain gave away a penalty but then headed in a last-minute normal-time equaliser that helped his team win Tuesday night’s European Super Cup in Trondheim.

    Full-back Dani Carvajal got the extra-time winner with a mazy run down the right and a shot past Sevilla keeper Sergio Rico to give Zinedine Zidane his second trophy in three months.

    It looked as if Sevilla had done to Real Madrid what they had done to Liverpool […]

    Real Madrid B: Zidane’s toughest test as Ronaldo, Bale & probably Benzema set to miss Super Cup

    The UEFA Super Cup clash in Trondheim represents an opportunity for some of the fringe players as Los Blancos seek to start the season with a trophy against Sevilla.

    The toughest test yet for Zinedine Zidane. The 44-year-old is without at least five and quite possibly six of the team that led Real Madrid to the Champions League trophy against Atletico in May. To claim another title on Tuesday, he must coax the best from his side’s second string.

    Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth […]
