Thoughts From Both Camps

“Our best defense will be linked to our attack and possession of the ball, knowing that the loss has to be in a place where we recover fast, knowing that if we enter a blow to blow with a team that surpasses us in that we will suffer.”

– Jorge Sampaoli, Sevilla.

“Sevilla could be the turning point, it could be everything.  We can lose – it’s OK, nothing happens. But if we win, if we do a very good game, something inside could change. We need one match like this.”

– Claudio Ranieri, Leicester City.
