The nearest opponent of the hosts of Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán for the 1/8 final will be the team of José Mourinho. But if now the Mancunians are at their same level and are winning match after match, then the team from Andalusia had really disappointed their loyal fans during two last rounds…
Sevilla (the head coach Eduardo Berizzo)
To tell the truth now it is very hard to determine what is worse: the devastating defeat with the score 5:0 during the away match against Real Madrid or the goalless score during the home match against Levante?
But in both cases the participant of decisive battles for the title of Europe Cup champion had left the field without scoring a goal. And after these two failures the team of Eduardo Berizzo is behind the first trio of the leaders of Spanish season. And the team has one more game to play.
Real Sociedad (the head coach Eusebio Sacristán)

Right now after the statement of its head coach Real Sociedad in a match against strong rival is going to break the 5 matches winning streak. But Sevilla had come to San Sebastián with at least one point. That is why we will enjoy 90 minutes of intense football. But the guests are really stronger than the hosts…
