‘Sevilla ready for Valencia’

Unai Emery has said his Sevilla side are ready for whatever Valencia throw at them in the Europa League semi-final second-leg.

Sevilla hold a 2-0 lead from the first encounter and Emery has told a Press conference that he has prepared his side on the basis that Valencia will come on strong.

“We are ready to face the best version of Valencia,” Marca reports Emery as saying.

“We’re ready because we have learned to navigate and manage different situations in the Europa League.

“At first the tie was 50-50 and now we have an advantage, but I have a lot of respect for Valencia.

“From the beginning our goal is press with dynamic players and we have to disarm them.

“When we have the ball we need to be calm to reach our goal.”

Emery added that the Sevilla fans would be vital in the game at Mestalla.

“There is a slogan of the fans that we love a lot, ‘You have to throw eggs,’ Emery added.

“In times of difficulty there were 4,000 fans in Estoril and I don’t take my eye off them.”
