Rony Lopes spoke to the media after he made his first start as a Sevilla player at home, in Thursday night's victory over APOEL: "We are very happy with the victory. Nowadays every team is good and each game is difficult. Just because they come from Cyprus doesn't mean that it is going to be an easy game. We were missing that second or third goal, but we played well and deserved the win".

However, he recognised that there was a drop-off in the performance level of the team between the first and second half: "In the first half we played some nice stuff and we got the goal. The fans are a real help for us, but in the second half our performance levels dropped. That being said, the most important thing was that we got the win".
