Lopetegui: ‘Sevilla deserved victory’

Julen Lopetegui maintains Sevilla deserve praise for dominating a ‘fantastic Roma team who have fantastic players’ in the Europa League.

It was one-way traffic in Duisburg for the Europa League Round of 16 tie, as Sergio Reguilon and Youssouf En-Nesyri got the goals for a 2-0 result, but it could easily have been more.

“We played against a fantastic team who have fantastic players,” the Sevilla coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“In my view, they have a great coach, but we deserved to win with an excellent performance, creating many scoring opportunities and never really suffering under pressure. We are happy.”

Sevilla go through to face Wolves or Olympiakos in the quarter-final, can they continue their extraordinary record in the Europa League with a fourth victory?

“We’ll have to wait and see. We must stay calm and recuperate so we can concentrate on the next match. All we’ve done so far is qualify for the next round.”
