Two years later, Sevilla added to their trophy cabinet with another Copa Del Rey victory. This time, they comprehensively beat Celta Vigo, 4-1.
Sevilla were runners-up in La Liga in 1950-51 and generally finished near the top of the table in the 50s. In 1954-55, Juan Arza won the Pichichi trophy, La Liga’s golden boot, by scoring 28 goals. That season, Sevilla were also Copa Del Rey runners-up. Club president Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán died in 1956 and the club’s new stadium, which opened in 1958, was named after him.
