Unai Emery has warned of Sevilla FC’s potential ahead of Sunday’s game at the Ciutat de València (4:15pm CEST)

Villarreal CF head coach Unai Emery appeared in front of the media this lunchtime ahead of Saturday’s game against Sevilla FC at the Ciutat de València (4:15pm CEST). He underlined the difficulty of the match. Here are his key comments.

Opposition analysis

“Sevilla are a great team and demand a lot for you, we are going to find them a very difficult opponent. They are a team who demand a lot from you if you want to steal the ball, and they have quality players in the middle and pace up front. Isco is standing out, but they have a lot of players. They need to find their feet with the new players at the start of the season, but it’s something they’re already achieving, so I’m sure they’ll get there. You can already see that they’re going in that direction.”

Full focus

“We are focused on the league, knowing the importance of the game and with the importance we are giving to the league from the start. We come from a defeat against Betis and with the difficulty of the away games, but that has made us grow. We’ve only played one game at home to Elche, we need to feel strong in front of our own fans and the team is aware of that.”

Key points for the game

“We’ll both try to have our personality, we both want the ball and we’ll try to get forward with our wide players. We’ll see who can score up front, it will be a long game with a lot of individual and collective duels. We value the effort of the fans with these trips, we need them and we want to thank them with games and victories. We feel that atmosphere and it helps the players.”

Happiness for the internationals

“International football is a place that gives recognition to the players and the club, so it is very positive. They accumulate games, but we are happy that they are going with their national teams.”
