Setien wants to ‘maintain euphoria’

Real Betis Coach Quique Setien has called on his side to ‘maintain euphoria’ against Levante following their victory at Real Madrid.

Los Verdiblancos’s 1-0 win at the Bernabeu was widely lauded but the former Las Palmas tactician believes the result will only matter if his side continue their level of performance and continue to improve.

“We want to maintain that moment of euphoria,” Setien told reporters at his pre-match press conference.

“We will attempt to infuse that momentum with focus and concentration, every match is different and this is another side who are in excellent form.

“The win in Madrid was memorable but we have identified 20 moments when we made mistakes and we have focused our efforts in trying to rectify those.

“We conceded too many opportunities to our opponents and whilst it is particularly difficult against that level of opponent, we could have reduced those chances.

“Against Levante we have to be smart and have patience, choosing our moments to find the right spaces and create opportunities.

“We have seen the reaction to our win on Wednesday and it has been amazing but we must consolidate this as without further points that will not mean much.”
