For Emery the results of direct rivals they leave practically no margin for error after going through a streak of too many draws. The Basque coach waits a hard match against the Cadiz team since he also referred to the European draw that has paired his team with Dinamo Zagreb

Do not fail in the league

“Every game at this stage in the league, and seeing how the direct rivals are doing, is a challenge. We differentiate the Europa League and the league. Tomorrow’s game is a challenge to recover after many league games without winning at home, after Many draws that have penalized us. We have won little and the deficit we have is clear. We have to concede little to reach our goals. Of 27 games we have only won nine, 33 percent. We have to consider ourselves in line with the needs of very high level. There are now aspects at the level of the game that make us optimistic. We are finding things that we had before. Let’s see if we can apply them in this game. “

Patience and balance

“We speak of patience when we rush, and of accelerating when there is too much patience and we do not arrive: we have to find a middle point of balance. Cádiz dominates the game times and competes very well. They have very good defensive game situations and find transitions with very dangerous speed. They dominate simple football, and many times that is difficult. And that gives them important things. They make quick attacks arriving with a lot of people. They are very competitive and we have to try to adapt to what they want to pose. We have to try to impose ourselves and knowing when to accelerate and when to go for them, and when to be patient. They were able to draw a draw at the Nou Camp in the best moment of Barcelona.

Inflection point

“The turning points are the present. In Vigo we won 0-4 with a great game and then we hit a negative streak. If we are not able to play a good game we cannot achieve it. We have to do something different, be able to give continuity to many good things “.

Dinamo Zagreb

“His career says it all. No one here gives anything away anymore. Neither to them nor to Slavia in Prague. He has a very good organization and very good players to eliminate Tottenham with that forcefulness. We will analyze and study it, but we already have the experience that they have eliminated one of the great favorites to win the tournament. Surely it is a team capable of giving the best performance. It is a 50% tie that we must live a lot and work hard. The strength of the team must be key to this “.


“Confidence is generated on a day-to-day basis, interacting with each other, being together and with what we can achieve on the field: defeats cause doubts and victories are the best medicine for confidence. You have to be optimistic but with arguments. You have to reproduce it at work and in games. There is no longer any margin for error. Every game you play is the opportunity you have. “

Recover Players

“The more players we have, the better, the more doubts for the eleven the better. And more so now that decisive matches arrive. Tomorrow we have to test how they are. Alcacer was touched on Thursday, Capoue will not be there because they have confirmed that they do not take away his Card. Others like Funes Mori have been joining, and on the right wing, without having players for a long time, we already have Mario, Peña and Chukwueze. All of that generates confidence. “
