Sevilla celebrate their 132nd birthday today dreaming of winning La Liga

Sevilla celebrated their 132nd birthday today dreaming of the perfect gift, which would be to win their second ever league title.

It’s been 77 years since the Andalusian club lifted Spanish football’s greatest prize according to a report by Diario Sport, but this season is up there with the best chances they’ve had since.

Sevilla are currently second in La Liga on 46 points, just four behind the league leaders Real Madrid. This team knows what it is to win trophies – they lifted the Europa League back in 2020.

Julen Lopetegui, in conjunction with Monchi, has built a tough, hard-to-beat team that knows how to grind out results. They have the best defence in Spain and have lost just twice this year.

But the final week of the transfer window will have an important bearing on whether this team can sustain a title challenge.

Newcastle United have been sniffing around Diego Carlos while Tecatito Corona has already been brought in from Porto and Anthony Martial’s arrival from Manchester United is imminent. If they can keep Diego Carlos, they have a real shot.
