Adriano: “It is always special for me to play in Seville”

Adriano Correia is going back to the place he played for lat six seasons, the Sánchez Pizjuán. “Whenever I go there it’s a special game” he said at press conference on Friday. “It was amazing in the Super Cup, where I got a nice reception … There will be a fantastic atmosphere. The fans tend to fill the stadium for games like this. It doesn’t matter where Sevilla are in the table”.

The Brazilian player believes that the game against Sevilla is “one of the hardest away trips” left for Barça this season. But the full back doesn’t think anything will be decided on Sunday. “There are now 33 points left to get. 33 are still a lot,” he underlined.

When I was there, they were always a team near the top of the table,” said Adriano. “There is huge pressure to finish among the top four. This year they have a lot injuries and so they have found it hard to play at the level they can”, he explained.

Asked about his role in one of the most important games of the season so far, the one against Arsenal, Adriano said he was happy to start the match and pleased with his performance, but admitted that he would have never have been able to live it down if the ball he lost towards the end of the match had resulted in Bendtner scoring. “Luckily there were no consequences”, he said.
