Emery: Celta beat Barca…

Unai Emery warns of the danger of assuming Sevilla are already in the Copa del Rey Final. ‘Celta Vigo beat Barcelona 4-1…’

A 4-1 score in the semi-final second leg at Balaidos would be enough to send Celta through, Sevilla holding a 4-0 advantage from the first leg.

“Celta have the quality to have options to get through. They beat Barca 4-1, which nobody has done,” Emery reminded reporters, according to AS.

“They have reason to believe. They’re going to make us defend our penalty area. We have to keep them at bay and it is going to be demanding work. We have to do better than we did on Sunday.

“Our credibility isn’t based on only getting through but to establish a more solid foundation.

“The motivation is playing a semi-final to win. We can’t give chances to Celta.

“We want to compete and play at these high levels of demand. Everything has to be concentrated on giving the best version of Sevilla to remain at the same level as the first leg.”
