Sevilla FC, team and fans, is experiencing very intense weeks lately, an intensity that will more and that will have only a short break from Monday with the break of national teams and the trip to Argentina, where we will dispute an attractive game against River Plate, with the Euroamerican Cup at stake.
This intensity we like, we feel comfortable working and competing, and we want to keep this line until the end of the season. Therefore, it is imperative that we focus on the match at Madrigal. The same opponent that was on Thursday, but different context and a double motivation for them: wanting to make up for their fans and get ahead us in the standings. The last one Sevilla FC also is well aware, we fight for the same objectives and must compete as we have done in the Europa League.
I emphasize the intensity of these days, by the accumulation of matches for the knockout round that we have brought forward, and the quarterfinal draw that has matched us with Zenit and already mobilizing the coaching staff ahead of the preparation of such tie, despite being away. It is true that it will come with injured to Sevilla, but it is a very important team of Champions and current dominating of the Russian league. It will be a tough but beautiful tie, we will face it with the idea of enjoying and compete, as we have done with the two great rivals who we have overcome in rounds of 16 and 8. We will work with humility and respect in order to maintain the strength of the collective and union with our fans, which is what has given us success and makes us a respected rival by the rest. In that sense, the trip to Russia will not be easy, but one way or another, we feel the breath of Sevillismo.
Finally, I take this opportunity to congratulate Vitolo which for the first time receive a call for to play in national team, a call that has been gained on the field with the help of team such as Tremoulinas who returning to France after a long time. It is a joy for Sevilla FC that continues to add internationals.
In the individual section, and collectively we talk about a step further, reaching one more goal, with maximum intensity, enthusiasm and dedication. Villarreal awaits us again. Force, SFC!
