Group G – Kick-off 19:45 (BST)
Sevilla head into their final game against Rangers needing just a point to finish top of Group G.
“I’m sure we will seal first place,” said coach Manuel Jiménez. “Thanks to the good job we’ve done we are very close. We should concentrate as if we get first position we will be in the mood to win more matches.
” Over the last month the players have played in four competitions and I am pleased with them. The same players must play every match due to injuries. Luis Fabiano had a medical test during half-time against Valladolid on Saturday, the doctors said ‘he’s OK’ and he wanted to play and score more goals.”
The Scottish champions, beaten 4-1 at home by Sevilla on Matchday 2, have gone a club-record ten games in UEFA competition without a win and are guaranteed to finish bottom of the group. Manager Walter Smith admits his side have nothing but “our pride and identity” to play for.
“The team will play for our pride and identity,” said Smith. “Money is important but for me it is more important that the team put out a good performance, better than we did in Glasgow. We played well from the first minute to the 60th in that match but then Sevilla scored.
“I hope Sevilla don’t score early. They are probably the best team in the group by a long distance with maybe Stuttgart second. We have played better away than at Ibrox.”
