I was lucky to find out that Sevilla FC was hosting AS Roma for the Trofeo Antonio Puerta when I was on holiday in Seville. Before the game both clubs payed their respects, together with the son of Antonio Puerta, at the place where the former Sevilla player got his first of 5 heart attacks.

Sevilla is only the 4th La Liga club I visit after Athletic Bilbao, Léganes & Atlético Madrid but everytime in Spain when both sides enter the ground, the clubsongs gives me chivers as the fans sing it with so much emotion.

Sevilla FC and AS Roma gave each other a good friendly and both teams got a few good chances. With only 20 more minutes to go Sevilla made it 1-0 and with 1 more minute to go they doubled their lead. Just before the referee blew his whistle to end the game Dzeko still made it 2-1.

I had a very good evening in a very beautiful stadium, worth every Euro. Food and drinks were also very cheap in the stadium and even cheaper outside (€0,75 for beer, cola,..). The old city center is also absolutely worth visiting with many beautiful, old places to visit.
