Emery calls for Sevilla calm

Sevilla boss Unai Emery insists people should not go overboard about his team’s fine form in La Liga and the Copa del Rey.

Los Rojiblancos thrashed Andalusian neighbours Granada 4-0 at the Sanchez Pizjuan on Wednesday to progress to a quarter-final meeting with Espanyol, Kevin Gameiro scoring twice with Iago Aspas and Denis Suarez also finding the net to record a 6-1 aggregate win.

Nonetheless, Emery is urging caution ahead of the remainder of the season.

“We are pleased to have qualified but we shouldn’t magnify the situation,” he told a post-match Press conference.

“We didn’t want any surprises against a good team that because of different circumstances are going through a bad spell.

“This victory gives us strength and creates excitement but there is no room for error because all we are thinking about is the next game and being careful.

“We won’t feel favourites against Espanyol as they played a great match by beating Valencias so we’ll go into the tie with respect and humility.”
