Sevilla take on Barcelona in Seville on Friday evening with the desire to not only beat the Catalan club, but secure their spot in the third position and earn qualification to the UEFA Champions League next season. Ahead of the match, on-loan Real Madrid fullback, Sergio Reguilon, spoke with AS, emphasizing his desire to beat the Blaugrana and to finish out the season strong with Sevilla.

“First I would be happy for Sevilla and if I can help Real Madrid, much better,” Reguilon told AS when asked about the prospect of helping Madrid with a victory over Barcelona. “Anything can happen in this league, a few games have been played so far and everything is rare, very compressed. Today, I play for Sevilla and I owe it to them to sacrifice and earn a win. If we cannot win the championship, of course, let Madrid win it!”

As is so often the case with Real Madrid loanee’s, Reguilon was about his future and what will happen next season.

“I always keep in touch with Madrid, I usually play with my teammates from there on Playstation. And yes, normally people from the club talk to me, they continued to do so during the confinement. But I don’t know what will happen next year, I want to clear my head of that. I intend to focus on this season, what remains of the competition, and not think about the future. Sevilla? Here I am very comfortable and I have been welcomed with open arms. This is a very important club,” Reguilon affirmed.

With Sevilla taking part in the Europa League, it is unlikely that Reguilon’s future is resolved before August. With Marcelo looking set to continue in Madrid for another season, Reguilon may favor extending his loan another season with the Seville club as he has earned an important role and would likely be playing in the Champions League next season.
