Sevilla FC have managed to qualify for the Champions League on a number of occasions, although their appearances in the competition have been rather sporadic in recent years. However, considering how well followed the Spanish side are and their previous successes across the continent, it is hardly a surprise that the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, which hold a capacity of 43,833 fans, becomes a lively venue when they do make the competition.
Los Nervionenses, as they are known, have had a number of top-quality players turn out for them in the past, whilst there have been a number of stars to grace the pitch for the Andalusian outfit in more recent memory, which adds to the appeal of attending fixtures in Europe’s elite club competition. Men such as Wissam Ben Yedder, Jesus Navas, Dani Alves, Ever Banega and Luuk de Jong have all featured over the years.
As mentioned, Sevilla’s appearances in the Champions League have been rather sporadic as the club have continued to fluctuate with their position in La Liga, therefore meaning they appear to take turns with playing in the top competition and the secondary Europa League.
Regardless, the Spanish outfit have reached the quarter-final stage of the tournament on no fewer than one occasion; having been beaten by Bayern Munich across two legs in the 2017/18 edition of the competition.
Of course, reaching the Last 8 of the tournament in 2017/18 was one of the most memorable moments for the Andalusian outfit, as they managed to produce a number of solid results on their way to the meeting with the German giants. They remained unbeaten against Liverpool in the Group Stage (two draws) and progressed after beating Manchester United in the Round of 16 with a victory at Old Trafford deciding the tie.
Other great moments that Sevilla have had in the past have included a 1-0 win against Juventus in 2015/16 and a 3-1 victory over Arsenal in the 2007/08 edition of the Champions League.
Despite having achieved their best-ever finish in that year’s competition, a 1-5 defeat to Spartak Moscow in Russia will still remain fresh in the memories of those associated with the club as it came in the 2017/18 tournament.
