Cristoforo: Looking forward to the derby atmosphere

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 "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."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
