Bacca: Important clean sheet

Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca says the fact his side kept a clean sheet in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final with Valencia was crucial.

The Colombian scored the second goal in the Rojiblancos’ 2-0 win and they are now heavy favourites to progress to the final in Turin.

“We played a good match against a great rival like Valencia,” Bacca said after the final whistle.

“It’s still not going to be easy to get a result over there. One of the most important things was to not concede a goal tonight.

“We could have scored the third but they played very well too.

“The second leg will be like a final, just like today.”
