Berizzo gives Sevilla ‘7/10’

Eduardo Berizzo has given Sevilla a “7/10” for their progress during preseason, despite no wins over the weekend.

Sevilla lost 2-0 to Southampton and drew 2-2 with Everton, but Berizzo insisted he saw enough from his side to suggest they would be ready for the Champions League playoffs.

“I didn’t like the start of our performance against Southampton,” the Coach said after the game against Mauricio Pellegrino’s Saints.

“Still, everything else we did during the weekend was good. The team found the right performance through their movement and we dominated our games as a result.

“For now, I give the team a 7/10 because we’re at 70 percent of where we should be. Of course, the Champions League playoffs determine everything.

“Roma? The team I pick will be based on what we do in the next 10 days. We have to be certain and pick the players that are in the best shape.

“Although your taste for someone’s talent can tip the balance in their favour, we must pick the players that are in the best shape for such a decisive game.”
