Sevilla boss Juande Ramos believes his side are perfectly matched with Spurs.
Sevilla boss Juande Ramos believes his side are perfectly matched with Uefa Cup quarter-final opponents Spurs.
The Spaniards claimed a 2-1 win in the first leg and head to White Hart Lane on Thursday night for the return match.
Spurs manager Martin Jol has complained of his side's injury crisis ahead of the match, but Ramos claims that Sevilla have problems too and the teams remain evenly balanced.
"I think Tottenham have a good squad," he said. "They have injuries, but we have some as well ourselves.
"When we were drawn against Spurs, I said it would be an ideal final - both teams have the same level."
Sevilla will not be able to call upon injured striker Javier Chevanton and keeper Andres Palop for the game.
"They are two players of great importance," he said.
In Palop's absence, David Cobena is set to play his first game for the club.
"This is the perfect stage for him to make his debut."
