‘Sevilla still have to fight for Final’

Adil Rami understands why onlookers consider Sevilla to already be in the Copa del Rey Final but insists the team ‘still has to fight.’

Sevilla dispatched Celta Vigo 4-0 in the first leg at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and, barring an extraordinary comeback at Balaidos, will meet Barcelona, 7-0 winners over Valencia, in the showpiece.

“You have the right to talk about the Final, but we just think about playing the semi-final,” Estadio Deportivo quotes Rami as telling Sevilla’s official website.

“In football you have to have a lot of respect and we have to fight again before thinking of the Final. Celta are a great team and we’ll fight and play with respect.

“I think we can achieve everything we’re able to, the semi-final, the trophy, there’s no limit, I think, with this great team, great Coach and players.”
