“It was a difficult place to come, against a tough side, and we were winning up to the 85th minute”, said Keylor Navas.
Marcelo reflected on the side's visit to Sevilla in the following terms: "We put in a good performance, but we took our foot of the gas after we went ahead. It's tough to take when you let points slip like we have done here. They got the equaliser and made things tough for us. That gave them a lift and they went on to get a second".

"We gave our all right until the end, but it just wasn't meant to be. I think that the team put in a great display. We now need to look at the mistakes we made, because there's still a lot of football to be played and we have to learn from our mistakes".

Navas: “Regardless of the result, it was a great game”
“We’re pleased with the work we did. We have to focus on how we played, the team has put in a great performance, regardless of the result. It was a difficult place to come, against a tough side, and we were winning up to the 85th minute.

"We have to be conscious that games can last longer and we can’t let our guard down at any moment. They had the ball but weren’t creating any chances of note. We looked solid as a unit and perhaps we were comfortable at certain moments and weren’t as focused as we should have been".

Carvajal: "We remain top, which is all down to the hard work we've been putting in since the start of the season".

"We lost the match, we have to learn from it, we can’t let it affect our motivation. I got a hand to the last goal but it wasn’t enough which is disappointing”.

Carvajal: “We lost but we're in a positive dynamic”
“We played a disciplined match, especially defensively, and we switched off for five minutes and the three points got away from us, but we're in a positive dynamic. LaLiga is competitive, there's a lot of matches still to play and the schedule gets heavier all the time. We need to keep picking up the three points to stay at the top and win titles”.

League leaders
"We remain top, which is all down to the hard work we've been putting in since the start of the season. There's still a lot to play for in the league and there are a lot of points at stake. We now have to turn our attentions to Wednesday's game against Celta, who are tough opposition, and try to put ourselves into a commanding position in the tie".

The penalty
"It was a piece of play in which I slipped the ball through and ran onto it and Rico came out and pushed it out of play, but he makes contact with me and it was a penalty".

Boos for Ramos
"He's played too many games to allow a bit of booing affect him. He's a local and it's difficult, but he's got enough experience to know how to deal with it. It's not fair".
