"Such an important win". That was the post-match verdict from the Sevilla FC coach Julen Lopetegui, as his side picked up a win against Real Sociedad in San Sebastián on Sunday afternoon. However, he does not want to talk about fourth place until it is mathematically safe: "It is such an important win, although things aren't assured until they're achieved. The team had a great mentality against the cup winners, they recovered and then dug deep in the second half. We had to adjust some things, but we competed well".
LOPETEGUI: “IT IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT WIN”
"The games are over when they are over. La Real scored an early goal from a mismatch, and we equalised soon after, which I think was key. They changed their formation and we changed some things too. We had to dig deep, even though we had a chance to kill the match off", added the coach, who is now looking ahead to Wednesday's match: "Like every match, it's important, and we're up against a Levante UD side who compete well. It's time to focus on recovering well and preparing for that match", he concluded.
