Unai Emery was pleased to see his side concentrate on Almeria and not the Europa League tie with Real Betis to come this week.
The Andalusian clubs meet in Europe on Thursday but Sevilla first had to see off Almeria – which they did, 3-1.
Emery told his post-match Press conference that the Almeria tie was an important one and defeat was not an option.
“We needed to remember this was an important game, and to know we were in a difficult game against Almeria,” Emery said.
“We had to give the best performances we could and forget the implication of playing Betis in the Europa League this week.
“There’s no way to go than to think of the next game and my greatest satisfaction is that the players did that.
“We have to play every game thinking about the next.”
