Following Sevilla’s 3-3 draw with Liverpool on Tuesday night, some sad news broke as it emerged boss Eduardo Berizzo is battling prostate cancer.
The Spaniards put on an impressive second half fightback from 3-0 down to snatch a point. According to the Mirror, the players were informed at the break, which could have inspired them to avoid defeat in that spectacular way.

A brace from striker Wissam Ben Yedder, and a stoppage time equaliser from Guido Pizarro stunned the Reds, who would have qualified for the knockout stages.
As it is, goals from Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane were not enough and they must now avoid defeat against Spartak Moscow, who drew 1-1 with Maribor in the group’s other game, to secure their place. They are still overwhelming favourites to top the table, though.

But the Sevilla players’ love for 48-year-old Argentine Berizzo was clear to see when they flocked to him to celebrate Pizarro’s 93rd minute goal. The article says that while the news of his illness has not yet been officially confirmed, the club will do so with a statement shortly.
