Sevilla ace Ivan Rakitic: We can't think Real Madrid in crisis

Sevilla ace Ivan Rakitic says they must be on their game facing Real Madrid this weekend.

Sevilla come into this match after a 4-0 defeat against Chelsea and Rakitic is keen to put that behind him.

He told Marca: "With respect, I think we just need to think about what we're doing. We know who Real Madrid are and how Real Madrid play and what Real Madrid are capable of. In a long season, we all know we'll go through good and bad moments. We shouldn't look at the opponent's situation, but rather focus on ours. To beat Real Madrid we'll have to play a complete game. We have to go for them.

"The team who needs the win the most is us! [Laughs] We want to win every match, whether it's against Real Madrid are any other LaLiga team. We always have motivation because beating Real Madrid would mean three points. We're in a positive run of form domestically. This league is very complicated and we have to make the most of every opportunity."
