Gregorio Manzano is hoping to mark his first home game in the Sevilla hotseat with a win on Sunday when he pits his new charges against one of his old clubs, Atletico Madrid.

Manzano this week replaced Antonio Alvarez, who was sacked following last Sunday's 2-0 defeat at promoted Hercules, and the former Real Mallorca coach led the Andalusian side to a much-needed 1-0 Europa League victory over Borussia Dortmund on Thursday in his first game in charge.

Now the 54-year-old is hoping to give his new club's fans more to smile about at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, where Sevilla have failed to win in four competitive matches since beating Barcelona 3-1 in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup in August.

"I'm really looking forward to the game. To win at home and send the fans home happy, those are the objectives against a very good opponent who have made a spectacular start to the season,'' said Manzano, who is no stranger to this weekend's opponents.

(La Liga, October 3, 2010) Alvaro Negredo put Sevilla in front just before the half hour against Atleti, the centre-forward curling a left-footed beauty into the top corner. Sevilla went 2-up a few minutes later, Kanoute saw his effort saved by De Gea only for Diego Perotti to fire a volley into the net aided by a large deflection. Fredi Kanoute all but sowed up the match with a third seven minutes after the break. Diego Costa pulled one back for Atletico on 58.
