Adriano: We can't fail

Sevilla wing-back Adriano has told his team-mates they cannot afford to fail in their Champions League last-16 clash with CSKA Moscow tonight. Sevilla, fourth in the Primera Division, have been handed what looks like one of the easier ties against a side who conceded more goals than any other qualifier from the group stage.

"We cannot fail now," Adriano said. "We are all very focused. The game is important for the players because everyone wants to play in the Champions League but it is also important for the club and the fans."

Saturday's 3-1 win against Real Mallorca, which ended the island side's perfect home league record, has left Sevilla in confident mood.

"It was a great dress rehearsal for the match in Moscow," said Adriano. "It was a great game that confirmed the level the team is at."
