The director of institutional relations of the Real Madrid, Emilio Butragueño, highlighted the enormous potential of the Seville FC just after knowing, in the headquarters of the Real Spanish Federation of Football (RFEF) this same Friday, that the group trained by Jorge Sampaoli will be the rival of the team merengue in the round of eighth of final of Glass of the King 2016-17.

"It was one of the worst rivals that could touch us", commented the white director, although it stood out that the Real Madrid will do all the possible for advancing to the following eliminatory. "And we will face the eliminatory with the maximum concentration to be inspired, but is a pairing complicated", signalled.

The Real Madrid, besides, will have the hándicap to contest the party of turn of the eliminatory in the Sánchez Pizjuán, something that can be a light advantage for the Seville. "It gives the same play the second party home or was, it is necessary to face it like this. But the boys know the difficult that is to play in a field like the one of the Seville. The Sánchez Pizjuán carries to his team to a very high performance", manifested Butragueño.

The Real Madrid did not have luck in this occasion

This time the luck did not smile to the whites in the draw of eighth of Glass of Rey, as yes it occurred in the one of eighth of UEFA Champions League 2016-17, with the Naples like opponent. If the ones of Jorge Sampaoli follow playing to the high level of the last weeks, no descarta that they can take down of the competition to one of the big favourites together with FC Barcelona and Athletic.

This yes, the Real Madrid already will have stepped more than the past season, when it lived one of the ridiculous more bochornosos of the last times when falling deleted in dieciseisavos of final of the tournament by the undue alignment of Denis Cheryshev against the Cádiz.
