Denis Suárez, Sevilla midfielder
We're very happy and pleased about the win, as we knew it was going to be a tough game. Standard came here in good form after winning their last three league games, but we managed to take a big step towards qualifying. Nothing's decided yet, but we're first in the group and very happy.

I'm feeling very at home here with Sevilla. The fans have given me a very warm welcome, the players too and all that makes playing much easier.

I'd already suggested to José [Antonio Reyes] that he try and play one-twos with me because when we combined together we were starting to really hurt them. José is a player with so much quality, we click really well and in the end that move [which led to Reyes making it 2-1] turned out brilliantly. We combined, then Diogo [Figueiras] laid it off to him and José finished really well. It was a 'golazo', very similar to one Arsenal scored in the Premier League not long ago.

We went into the game looking to get all three points to stay top of the group. It's a very tight group, there's still nobody mathematically sure to go through, but we're currently very well placed with eight points.

The coach decided that [Kevin] Gameiro, who's a great player, would start today, while equally Iago Aspas could have come in too. When the coach makes a decision you have to respect it, even though as a player you want to play every game. You've got to be there to support your team-mates and when your turn comes do your bit.

Our goal is to finish first in the group. If we win our next game against Feyenoord, and we always try to win every game, then we'll be through in first place and we can breathe more easily and think about the next round. It'll be a very tough game as they're strong at home but we'll be going there looking to win.

This win was very important because the group was very tight and we were playing at home. When you see how up for it the fans get, they're really incredible, then you just have to give them the victory that we need.

We were fortunate enough to opening the scoring early, but they’re a good team and managed to level the game, though the important thing was that we ended up taking the win. It's not the same playing away as it is at home and in the end we've picked up three very valuable points.

It's true that [right-back] Diogo [Figueiras] and I get on well, and you can see that in the good understanding we have on the field too. I think that we both had a good game but we can't afford to stop working hard.

Igor de Camargo, Standard forward
Of course we knew it would be a very tough game, seeing the quality Sevilla have. In technical terms they were clearly the better team tonight, I felt that we gave the ball away far too often, we didn't show the same patience and composure that we've been showing in the Belgian league recently. Given how good a team Sevilla are, that little bit of calm on the ball was what we were lacking.

Of course we can learn lessons from the match. When you take on a team as experienced as Sevilla there's a lot you can learn from them, whether you're playing at home or away. We definitely still have a good chance of going through, there's two games to go, two tough games admittedly, but ther'’s no reason we can’t take all six points – that's what we want and that’s what we’ll be aiming to do.

Tony Watt, Standard forward
Our chances of qualifying all depend on our next game, as if we can win that one we've got a really good chance of going through. We made it hard for ourselves today but I thought that the team put in a good performance and we were a touch unlucky.

We fought hard, we showed quality throughout the team and we matched them in a lot of areas of the park. Sometimes it's not easy getting a result away from home, Sevilla were favourites and they had the crowd behind them, though we got some good support from our travelling fans too.

The goal just before half-time knocked the stuffing out of us. If it had still been 1-1 at the interval we might have been able to frustrate them and get a point, which would have been nice, but these things happen in football and hopefully we'll be able to get something out of our two next games.
