thumbnail Hello,

The Spanish coach was delighted to see his team beat Carlo Ancelotti's men but has demanded they maintain their intensity as they look to secure European football for next season

Sevilla coach Unai Emery was bathing in the glory of seeing his side down Real Madrid on Wednesday.

Emery's men dealt Carlo Ancelotti's side a big blow in the title race with Wednesday night's 2-1 win, while also improving their own chances of catching Athletic Bilbao and taking the last Champions League spot.

And the 42-year-old said the win over the capital club, and the stretching of their league winning streak to six games, was a major fillip for Sevilla.

"It's not every day you beat Real Madrid," Emery said.

"In addition to making history with these six consecutive wins, whilst we may be euphoric, we can't let that euphoria confuse us.

"We're fifth now, we have to strengthen ourselves in that position and we've done something important but the most important is still to come.

"We're happy with the work we've done but knowing that as one game ends, another one begins. This win against Real Madrid will be worthless if we don't win in Vigo."

Sevilla next face Celta on Saturday and Emery said that was the side's only focus after slaying Real.

"Our only objective is our next game," he said.

"We're fifth and we have to remember that we've got there from being last at the start of the season. It's important for us to be there.

"If we can keep this position, that's how we'll push ourselves closer to fourth."
