Sevilla ‘only think of winning’ in Turin

Sevilla president Jose Castro has stated that the club are targetting a win in their Champions League opener away to Juventus.

"Yes, a draw in Turin would be a good result but we are only thinking about winning," the president told reporters as his club landed in Italy.

"If you look at what happened to Barcelona against Alaves, there is no reason why we should not think we can win any game.

"We will aim to make things difficult for them and hopefully we can take our chances when they arrive.

"Just as last year, our group is very tough but we will try to go one step further and progress to the next round."

Castro also referenced Juve's 90 million euros summer signing of Gonzalo Higuain as sportingly and economically an important factor in the group.
