Current Europa league winners Sevilla begin their UCL today against one of the strongest sides in the competition this season.
Frank Lampard’s boys begin their European campaign with a more strengthened squad considering their recent signings and this has led Lopetegui to tip them to contend for the trophy this season.
“We are up against one of the teams that could win the title, in Chelsea,
but we want to focus on performing well- that’s all we can do.”
“Chelsea have bought some good players,
invested a lot of money, it’s a great squad and
coach that knows the club inside-out.”
“They are an extraordinarily strong
opposition. Chelsea have some fantastic, top
players, but they are going to force us to be at
our very best.”
“They have been playing well lately and they
will force us to produce our best possible
performance across the board. We’re going to
need to play very well.”
As said by Julen Lopetegui
