PFC CSKA Moskva midfielder Mark González believes the weight of expectation will be on Sevilla FC when the sides meet at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán on Tuesday with a place in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals at stake. The Chilean international, who used to play for Sevilla's city rivals Real Betis Balompié, scored CSKA's goal in the 1-1 draw in Moscow three weeks ago, and said: "All the pressure will be on them as they are at home. It's the first time CSKA have got this far in the Champions League, so this match is very important for us."
