Emery seeking first win over Barca


Sevilla manager Unai Emery has never guided his team to victory over Barcelona, but is still relishing another chance to do so in the UEFA Super Cup on Tuesday.

Sevilla, as the Europa League holders, face the treble-winners at Boris Paichadzis Erovnuli Stadioni in Tbilisi, Georgia, and Emery is looking at the game as another chance to take on a formidable foe.

"It's one more opportunity," he said. "An opportunity to enjoy ourselves against a great opponent who will be favourite to win but we will work hard to overcome them.

"In the past, sometimes I ended up happy and sometimes not. I do not want to miss out on the opportunity of facing them either this year or in the next 15. We want to play a lot of games against Barcelona in the future because it means we are at the top level."

The former Valencia and Spartak Moscow coach did not agree that his side had a 50-50 chance against Barca, but admits that their 2-2 draw in La Liga last season is a good place to start.

"It's good that [the players] have hope and excitement. I'm not giving percentages but the favourite is Barcelona. We have our way and we will play to win. We are hungry for success.

"Barcelona will be on top of us a lot but we have to take advantage of the times when we have some control over the game. The closer we are, the more options we will have."
