The coach of Club Atlético Osasuna, Jagoba Arrasate, appeared before the media after his team's defeat to Sevilla by zero goals to two. The coach acknowledged that, although his players threatened to take the lead in the early stages of the game, Sevilla were superior afterwards: "We came up against a great opponent. We had a very encouraging start, with three chances in three minutes, one of them very clear. But, after their goal, they managed it better, and we faced a solid team that does things very well, it's challenging to create chances. And, when you step up because you're losing, they can find your back, and that second goal made the game practically impossible. We tried, we made a great effort, but today we were up against a great opponent."

The coach accepted that his team could have had room for improvement on the pitch, but pointed out that the result had been "Sevilla's merit for sure. They did well, although I'm sure we could have done more." "It's true that if you take the lead, the script of the game changes a lot. We tried, but it wasn't possible: we changed our formation, but we didn't create chances. I think that today if anything has been shown, it's that Sevilla is a team with capital 'T' because they do well with the ball and also without it," he concluded.

Finally, the coach confessed that he is already looking ahead to the next game in Vitoria: "Saturday we have a crucial match where we are already at a disadvantage: Alavés have been thinking about us since yesterday, and we have to focus on Mendizorroza because it's a vital game".
