believes they owe it to themselves and their fans to ensure that high standards are maintained.

"The mood is always perfect in the training ground and we have a responsibility from the first game until the last game," Xisco said.

"We play at home, we have a very good challenge and this our reward, this is our responsibility, and it is important we enjoy the process.

"The most important thing is focusing on the game. We have a good opponent and the most important thing is to have a big focus."

"They gave good solutions and the team always get better and they gave me more options. I am very happy with the management for the situation because it was perfect and I always have solutions."
