Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca scored the second goal, as his side gained a good advantage for themselves at the Sánchez-Pizjuan, in the first-leg of the Europa League semi-final against Valencia.

Carlos Bacca celebrates for Sevilla

Following the 2-0 victory against Valencia and speaking with Spanish broadcasters Cuatro, Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca was pleased with the result, but warned that the tie is far from over.

“We’ve had a good game against Valencia, a great opponent. Regardless of the outcome though, it won’t be an easy game there.”

Humble about his own impact and his strike, the Colombian placed more emphasis on his side not conceding an away goal to Valencia.

“One of the most important things was keeping a clean sheet here. We could have scored a third by they were also very good and could have scored.”

Attention for Sevilla now turns to their match at Athletic Club Bilbao this weekend, where they’ll fight for a chance of fourth position in La Liga, but Bacca admitted he’s also really looking forward to the second-leg at the Mestalla.

“Now we’ve got to think about Bilbao. The game at Valencia will be like a final, like today. It’ll be a beautiful game that anyone would want to play in.”
