Uruguay international Martin Caceres has been speaking ahead of tonight’s clash between FC Barcelona and Sevilla, with the defender issuing a call to arms for the Andalucian side. Caceres, who is currently on loan to Sevilla from Barça, seems well aware of the challenge that lies ahead of his adopted team tonight, but the former Villarreal man still believes his team could pull off a positive result against the Catalan champions.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of the game, Caceres said, “We will have to be completely focused for 90 minutes, because Barcelona have such quality. We are going to try and impose our game, because we are at home and Barcelona obviously will want to win. We will need a bit of luck and a will to win, because everyone wants to play in this game.”
“Every single Barcelona player has tremendous quality and it’ll be very tough for us. I don’t know yet whether I’ll play, but whoever plays at centre-back will have to put in a good game. Alexis and Fazio are great players and they’ll do their utmost to win. The coach knows how to play against Barcelona and we want to win this game. It won’t be easy to get the full three points though.”
Recalling the one season he spent playing in Catalunya, Caceres spoke very eloquently and respectfully, saying, “I remember it (my time in Barcelona) because it was good to wear their shirt for a year. I have friends there and I played in the loss at the Camp Nou last year. I expect that this match will be difficult, but the manager knows how they will play and will decide our starting line-up. I think that we all have the desire to win, although it will be very difficult.“
