Sevilla FC's Sporting Director, Monchi, spoke to the club's media to evaulate the team's win in the Benito Villamarín: "It was not an easy game as the opponent played very well. However, Sevilla were able to manage the game better in different stages of the match. They suffered whenever they had to suffer and dominated whenever they had to dominate. We deserved the win".
Overall, Sevilla were the superior side but "against us was a team who made life hard. I think both the team and the manager read the game very well. In nearly every moment of the game, we did what we had to do. The result will stay with us for a long time and it's even better looking at the table now and seeing yourself in fourth position. It has been a Sunday to remember". The team go into the international break on a good run of form, looking well in both the league and the UEFA Europa League: "We are in a good place; however, what we can't afford to do is take our foot off the pedal. We need to keep working hard because there'll be times in the season that won't be as nice as today. We have to stick together, have confidence in each other and remember that we are a good side".
