SEVILLA MISS OUT

Our UEFA Cup opponents Sevilla missed the chance to leapfrog Barcelona at the top of La Liga on Sunday.

Our UEFA Cup opponents Sevilla missed the chance to leapfrog Barcelona at the top of La Liga on Sunday.

With seven changes to the side that lined-up against us in the quarter-final, first leg on Thursday - including the strikeforce of Kanoute and Kerzhakov on the bench, both were used in the second half - Sevilla were held to a goalless draw by Racing Santander. It means Barcelona stay top despite losing at Real Zaragoza on Saturday.

We go into the quarter-final, second leg at the Lane on Thursday (7.45pm) trailing 2-1 from the first leg.

In the other quarter-final, first legs, Osasuna beat Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 in Germany - if we progress, we will play the winners of this tie in the semi-final - while Espanyol beat Benfica 3-2 and Werder Bremen and AZ Alkmaar drew 0-0.
