Statements - Eduardo Coudet (Celta Coach)

"It's a very difficult match, we will play against a Champions League opponent. I'm not going to reveal anything by saying the hierarchy of their squad, their players, their coach, who always presents variations from the previous match. It will be a very demanding match.

"The first objective we are looking for is to get the necessary points to tie up salvation definitively. We prepare every match to win, we try to propose whether at home or away, but we are also aware that we are facing a top opponent, a Champions League rival. We need to play a great game.

"Depending on how the match is going, you need certain characteristics. You look to find solutions at the moment the match asks you to. We don't have a lot of individual duels or revulsive players. Perhaps the most revulsive is Iago Aspas. Then we have to modify through movements and we play with that, it's not a matter of changing for the sake of changing. If the team is good, it is very difficult to change. We are also a fair squad. The other day on the bench there were Fontán, Carlos and Murillo, three central defenders, on the left we have three players, there are five players for one role."

"We can modify the system, but it's not so great how revulsive it can become. Another issue is that we have some things that I don't want to change so that they don't become deficits. I can't lose all the height I have, which is not that much, on set pieces. Sometimes we play with three or four midgets and that's something you have to compensate for somehow. We have 20 chips, three of which are for the same position".

Statements - Unai Emery (Villarreal Coach)

"We are taking it one game at a time. We only have the match against Celta in mind. We have Paco Alcácer and Alberto Moreno out. The evolution of Foyth and Gerard is going well, but we don't know when they will reappear."

"Celta is a team that is in a great moment, they play very good soccer and are brave. They have a taste for touch and a lot of offensive vocation. The physical deployment is high and they play with a lot of intensity. They are capable of playing great games and getting good results. At the moment, they are seven points behind. Our last reference is the first leg, in which we got a draw. We played a good game and had chances to win, but we could also have lost. That's Celta and that's the kind of team we expect."

"We are feeling strong in our field, motivated and with good play. We have the obligation to transmit our energy to them. We like to perceive theirs. We want to play and give our best individually and collectively. It will be an attractive match, we will look to be protagonists. We need our fans to help us feel good".
