Jesus Navas: ‘Intense Sevilla-Roma’

Jesus Navas says Sevilla ‘know what is at stake’ in the Europa League and expect a ‘very intense match’ against Roma.

The Round of 16 is a one-off tie, kicking off on Thursday at 17.55 UK time (16.55 GMT) in Duisburg.

“We are happy to be here and know what is at stake. It’s going to be a difficult match, we’ll try to face it in the best possible way,” said the right-back in his press conference.

“We’ll give everything we’ve got to win the game and progress in the competition. We’re concentrated and know how important this is, because Roma are a strong side, so we expect a very intense match.”

Sevilla were personally affected by COVID-19 after midfielder Nemanja Gudelj tested positive last week.

“We are fine and in good shape, so just want to focus on the game.”
