FC Barcelona host Sevilla in La Liga on Saturday (8.45pm CET), a rival that Ernesto Valverde has good memories of. The coach, who was at Barça for two seasons (1988/89 and 1989/90), played a total of 29 official games and scored 10 goals, eight of them in the league. The first of these came against Sevilla in the Sánchez Pizjuán, on day 35 of the 1988/89 season.

It was in the 26th minute, when he received a pass from Guillermo Amor and made the game 1-1, the eventual final score. It was Valverde’s third goal for Barça in all competitions, because he had already netted against Cartagena and Racing in the Cup.
