Petrescu Backs Celtic Final

Posted by

Dan Petrescu has hailed Celtic and Seville as Europa League favourites and could easily see both clubs making it to the final.

The Cluj gaffer watched his side go toe to toe with the La Liga stars and draw 1-1 in their first leg match with Seville.

Sevilla have won a record five Europa Leagues in the last 14 years and Petrescu – whose Cluj side have faced Celtic four times this season – sees similarities between the Spaniards and the Hoops.

Dan Petrescu has hailed Celtic and Seville as Europa League favourites and could easily see both clubs making it to the final.

He said: “In my opinion, Sevilla are the favourites for this tournament.

“But they are the same level as Celtic and we have already gone to Glasgow this season and won. We can do it again in Spain in the second leg.

“No one expected us to get a result in Scotland, but we put Celtic out of the Champions League.

“We were by far the better team for most of the game against Sevilla and we have nothing to fear ahead of the second leg.

“We have already produced one miracle in Glasgow this season and I believe we can do it again.”
