Julen Lopetegui in the preview of VfL Wolfsburg-Sevilla FC


'They have started the Bundesliga very well - they are a top team'

Sevilla FC manager Julen Lopetegui appeared before the press this evening ahead of tomorrow's Champions League clash against VfL Wolfsburg. Julen began by saying 'I'm expecting an opponent of the highest level - they are one of the best teams in Germany. They've started the Bundesliga really well this year - they're almost at the top. They are complete in every respect. We go into the game aiming for the three points but aware of the difficulty they will give us.'

'En-Nesyri was going to miss out because of the sending-off but he is injured. I'm focused on the players in Germany. We don't give many surprises, we're predictable in what eleven we might put out tomorrow. We have the utmost respect for Wolfsburg but we are coming to beat them,' Lopetegui responded when asked about En-Nesyri and what the line-up may be.

'It's a tough group and it will still be tough no matter what happens tomorrow'

Julen continued: 'It's a tough group and it will still be tough no matter what happens tomorrow. It's only the second match and every game is of the utmost importance. We can't change what happened in the first match and we are focussed on tomorrow's.'

Lopetegui was asked about Munir's chances of playing given En-Nesyri's absence: 'Every player is here because they can help us. Some play more than others, but everyone has their moment and they must be ready. Munir is working well and I'm sure he will help us.'
