Former Roma and current Sevilla sporting director Ramon Monchi spoke to the Spanish club’s official website about next month’s side between the two sides.
“Roma are a team I know well, they made changes in the summer and at winter, but they will demand a lot of us. They are very competitive, have a very good squad and a very important record, without a doubt they will be a very important obstacle,” said Monchi.
The Spaniard also offered his thought on the one-off format of the Europa League for the remainder of the competition: “I can’t give an exact stat on who is favoured or damaged by playing just one match. It’s a different format, it will demand a lot of all of us because we’re playing for life or death in four matches across a fortnight, with no margin for error. The ability to concentrate, motivate and recover will be fundamental”.
