‘Getafe our most important match’

Unai Emery believes Sevilla's trip to Getafe in La Liga on Sunday is their most important match of the season to date.

The Andalucians remain fourth in the table, despite their defeat to Real Madrid midweek, but the Coach is aware that another win will keep them in the driving seat for a Champions League place, although Los Azulones will be no easy feat.

"The three points will keep us fourth. It's a more important game than the clash with Real Madrid last Wednesday," he told reporters at a Press conference.

"Getafe are like a mirror image of their Coach Sanchez Flores. Quique's increasingly putting his stamp on the team.

"Getafe know what they want and are very good at getting what they want, so Sevilla have to be prepared for the difficulties which await them.

"Injuries are never welcome, but they're part of the game. [Beto's] an important player, but he'll be close to the team. We'll take the positives [from his influence].

"It also reassures Sergio Rico and Mariano Barbosa, who have already played earlier this season [of their worth]. Beto prevented a clear goal and was exposed to a strong shock.

"[Nicolas Pareja] trained normally on Thursday and is ready to play on Sunday. [Jose Antonio Reyes] is close to returning, but he still needs some more healing so he should be back next week."
