Joaquin insists they will go into the clash full of confidence.
He said, “This is a special, beautiful, Sevillian week. It is a shame not to live it with our fans. We arrived at an extraordinary moment. It is true later in the derbies one does not know what will happen, there are small details that mark a lot this type of game, regardless of whether Sevilla come from a bad stage, having lost in two competitions, but they are still a great team, a great rival, who is having a great campaign in LaLiga.
"It is a difficult match and we cannot think of anything else. We have to work to know that we have a great team in front of us and we will have to deploy our weapons and hold on to our goalscoring moment, that in that we have the arrow up, and make a great game.
"We are at a time when we have to go to all the fields to win. It is our winning mentality right now and it is what is giving us power to be on top."
