Sevilla midfielder Sebastian Cristoforo is looking forward to playing a part in his first derby when the Primera Division recommences after the international break.

The Uruguayan, who signed for Sevilla on a five-year deal this summer, has been involved in derby clashes for former side Penarol against bitter rivals Nacional in the Uruguayan Championship.

And he is already relishing what the atmosphere will be like when Unai Emery's side take on Real Betis on November 24.

Ahead of next Sunday's match at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, 20-year-old Cristoforo told his club's official website sevillafc.es: "I've heard a lot about this game, which is a classic and very important. It is very important to win."

Last season in the corresponding fixture, Sevilla recorded a 5-0 victory, while in the reverse at Benito Villamarin, the score was drawn at 3-3.

Cristoforo added: "I have said that last year was a very good result (for us) and hopefully we can repeat that, hopefully we can win.

"I have seen a few Betis games and we will study them more.

"They are quick and we have to be careful not to give them any chances to score."

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
