Sevilla club boss Pablo Machin has declared that his side will not play for a draw as they take on Barcelona on Saturday evening.

The Andalusian side will face their toughest test of the season as they visit  Camp Nou against Barca team without a win in four games.

“It promises to be a beautiful match, it will surely be the key match of the day,” Machin told reporters, as cited by El Desmarque via Football Espana.

“We arrive as leaders and we aim to be there at the final whistle; I never play for a tie and believe we can get a positive result no matter what stadium we are in.

“We are facing one of the best teams in the world, with the best players in the world, but there are always opportunities to score and to win.

“We aim to win every match, but we cannot think long-term about our opportunities, we must take it step by step.

“We only talk about winning options, we do not want to focus on who we are playing but ourselves, we are top of the table for a reason.”
