Xhaka fires Sevilla warning

Borussia MG midfielder Granit Xhaka believes his side will have to be at their best to beat Sevilla in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Bundesliga outfit travel to Seville for their first group encounter of the season in a rematch of last season's Europa League last-32 tie, which the La Liga outfit won.

And Xhaka has warned his teammates that nothing less than 100 per cent commitment will be enough to get the win this time around.

"We've got to run so hard that we throw up after the game – that would give our fans something to smile about," Xhaka told German publication Bild.

"We need to win and we need to win now."

Xhaka, though, will not be in action at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan having been sent off in the defeat to Sevilla last season.
