Emery: Europa League out of mind

Sevilla Coach Unai Emery wants the focus on La Liga and not the Europa League derby with Real Betis.

Los Rojiblancos’ win over Maribor and Betis’ victory against Rubin Kazan means the Andalusians will meet in the Round of 16.

But Emery insisted at his post-match Press conference that Sevilla can’t look past Real Sociedad, their opponents on Sunday.

“We’ll continue like this. When the game against Betis comes round, we’ll think about them,” Emery said.

“But for now the most important thing is that the players recover and we are prepared for Real Sociedad.

“I can’t look beyond Sunday. The European derby is great and will create a lot of interest but our priority is Real Sociedad.”
