Montella ‘certain’ on Euro qualification

Sevilla Coach Vincenzo Montella has played down concerns his side will miss out on a European spot next spot: “I am sure we will be in Europe.”

The Andalusians must either finish in the top six – which they are three points behind – or win Saturday’s Copa del Rey final against Barcelona at the Wanda Metropolitano.

“I’m certain that we will be playing in Europe next season,” Montella told reporters after the match, as cited by Marca.

“I’m angry because once again we have dropped unnecessary points in a game that we should have won, but there are still plenty of points left to play for.

“Deportivo were great and this is a version we have not seen of them all season and you can see Clarence (Seedorf) is doing a great job, and now they are compact and organised.

“I believe they are now ready for a full battle against relegation.”
