“Due to different circumstances, we are going to have to play on Sundays, since Monday is the FIFA date after the games against Villarreal and Sevilla. The Europa League is exciting, but make no mistake, the most important game is against Granada. The League should not be neglected due to international competition, which are also treacherous, like all cups.
