Sevilla vs Dortmund build-up

What’s the story?

Sevilla’s UEFA Europa League success over the past 15 years has been nothing short of staggering. Yet only once in the last six decades have the Spanish side progressed beyond the last 16 in the UEFA Champions League – they stunned Manchester United in 2017/18. Dortmund’s inconsistency provides cause for optimism this term, but clipping Erling Braut Haaland’s wings is easier said than done.

Julen Lopetegui, Sevilla coach: “We’re up against great opponents, a really historic club. They’ve got some top players. We’re talking about the last 16 of the Champions League against top-level opponents. They can play with different set-ups and systems, they’ve got technically good players, physically they’re strong and they play fast-paced football. We’ll need to be at our best.”

Edin Terzić, Dortmund caretaker coach: “There are no easy opponents waiting in the Champions League in mid-February. Sevilla have often won the Europa League in recent years. We are looking forward to that task. Until then, there are so many other tasks and issues to be dealt with. When the games against Sevilla come around, then we’ll prepare for them in the best possible way.”
