Two Spanish clubs – Sevilla vs Real Madrid – will meet in the UEFA Super Cup 2016. Real Madrid team is stronger because the team has a star cast at its disposal. Although Sevilla team does not have such stars like Real Madrid has, but by some miracle, it gets to the final of the Europa League for the third year in a row. It proves positive Sevilla odds.
«Sevilla» is a professional football club from the same city, which was founded on October 14, 1905. It played its first official match in 1908, and a year later was divided into two parts. As a result of the split in the leadership appeared the Seville club «Betis».
In the season 2014/2015, even winning in the Europa League has not helped the White Andalusia (as the fans call «Sevilla») gather more viewers than «Betis» did on Segundo matches.
In 1928 the team won the right to participate in the Segundo, where it stayed for six years, followed by the first exit in La Liga. Andalusia was able to become the owners of the Spanish cup. In the season 1940-41, they defeated "Barcelona" by the score of 11-1, "Valencia" with the score of 10: 3 and "Hercules" - 8: 3. The team has twice been close to the Champions title, but both times stayed in the second position.
The season 1945/46 was a landmark for the Sevilla; then it could take the gold medal in La Liga. Two years later, the team was able to re-take the Spanish Cup, but who would have thought that they will have the next Copa del Rey only in 2007?
In 1972, "Sevilla" was sent to the second division for three years. The eighties-nineties have become stable for the team, but without any cups won.
Sevilla’s "golden decade" began precisely in the twenty-first century, when Juande Ramos led the team. Sevilla’s standings in the 2004/05 season were the sixth place, and it received the right to play in the UEFA Cup. The Spanish team met in the final with the English "Middleborough" and convincingly won with the score of 4: 0. This trophy was the first for the team after fifty-eight years after their victory in the Spanish Cup. Winning the UEFA Cup has given the right to play in the Super Cup, where its rival was "Barcelona". It is all of a sudden, "Seville" has won with the score 3: 0. But this was not enough for the club. The next UEFA Cup once again became the "gold" one! These are rather good Sevilla tips, aren’t they?
Among the legends of the club are Manolo Jimenez and Jesus Navas, Guillermo Kampanal. Other brilliant players are Palop, Dani Alves, Luis Fabiano, Kanoute and Rakitic, Bacca, Banega. But in general, it is evident that the best times of Sevilla standings are in the new century. Two consecutive victories in the UEFA Cup with Juande Ramos, a similar achievement, but in the Europa League - with Unai Emery.
"Sevilla" has won the championship only once, but gathered a collection of five UEFA club cups.
The victory over "Dnipro" allowed Sevilla to set a record - no other team won the UEFA Cup and its successor in title four times. Also in the match Barcelona – Sevilla Super Cup, it gained the victory with the score of 3: 0.
Before the Spanish championship was held, "Sevilla" won the Andalusia Championship (Copa Andalucia) 17 times and twice became the champion of Sevilla.
In general, they were the champions of Spain once (1945/46), won the Spanish Cup 5 times (1935, 1939, 1947/48, 2006/07, 2009/10) and once the Spanish Super Cup(2007), 5 times UEFA Cup and European UEFA Cup (2005/06, 2006/07, 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16), once the UEFA Super Cup(2006).
