Atlético Madrid coach Diego Simeone spoke to the press in the run-up to Wednesday's Copa del Rey semi-final second leg against Sevilla at the Sánchez Pizjuán stadium. Simeone looked ahead to the match-up with Unai Emery's side, and offered his reaction to the video prepared by the Andalusian club in which they warned Atleti: "We'll be waiting for you." The former Argentina midfielder also had scathing words when asked for his thoughts on Madrid-Barça.

Importance of the semi-final: "We play decisive games all the time, and the game against Sevilla will be no different. Yes, it's a significant match."

Motivation for the match: "The Copa del Rey is exciting. We know it's going to be a tough game, an important one. It's going to be a difficult game and anything that distracts us from focusing on that distracts us from where we want to be."

Expectations for the game: "To go through, we'll have to play well and continue competing as we have been. We are playing against a really good team. It'll be an open, entertaining game."

Key midfield battle: "Both teams have very strong players up front, so whoever dominates the midfield will come out on top. We're considering our options for that area of the pitch. Depending on training, we'll see how we set up for the match."

Is Atleti defender Cata Díaz a weakness?: "Cata won't be playing on his own. This isn't tennis, is it? He is an extraordinary player and he has a lot of character - after all, he's played in finals with Boca Juniors. He's an important player."

Atlético danger man Diego Costa: "I don't expect Sevilla to focus their tactics on Diego Costa."

Atmosphere at the Sánchez Pizjuán: "There has always been a great atmosphere there. When I played for Sevilla it was a great stadium to play at home in. The Pizjuán is a beautiful stadium that motivates any player."

Has Sevilla's "We'll be waiting for you" video stoked up the atmosphere?: "I won't be drawn into assessing that. Seville is a beautiful city with passionate people. It'll be a great game, because the tie is on a knife-edge. Games like this are exciting for everyone."

Thoughts on the Clásico: "I think our game against Sevilla will be a more attractive game than Madrid-Barça. We're bored of the Clásico."
