The Sevilla coach was asked if the result meant they can be serious challengers for the Spanish Liga title this season: "When things are going well for you, it's important to take advantage, which is what we have been doing for the last two years.

"But in football, just as in one game, everything can change and we must be aware of that. All this success is down to the hard work of the players. They must not forget how they reached this position."

He added: "I am not worried about Madrid. I only know that we scored five goals and our attack was excellent. Sevilla produced a magnificent performance."
