Feelings were not good during Sevilla's expedition to Denmark after the draw against Copenhagen.
The coach, Julen Lopetegui, drew a game that few fans saw in the Danish capital.
"The first impression I have of this match is that we have had too many chances to score, but we haven't hit the mark and from then on at least we haven't lost our composure", said the Basque coach.
“Not losing when you can't win is important and we still have direct confrontations with the group's rivals in four games and that's where we'll play for qualification.
When you are not effective it is much more difficult to win, although we have done a great collective work.
In the end we lacked a bit of calm to be able to win”, explained the questioned Sevilla coach.

Yellow cards Mohammed Daramy (min. 10), Claesson (min. 57), Joan Jordán (min. 74), Marko Stamenic (min. 81) and José Ángel Carmona (min. 93)
The goalless draw against the worst rival in the group has not yet dispelled doubts about Sevilla's performance.
On Sunday, against Villarreal, Lopetegui will play it again.
“Two very young kids participated who played a great game against a very physical opponent.
With your own clean sheet, everything is easier, although you have to hit the opponent's goal”, he indicated.
Where the coach did draw attention was when analyzing the state of some of his players.
The message to the planning carried out by Monchi, sports director, was evident.
“We come from where we come from and I am not going to repeat why.
We have lost important players and many new ones have arrived who are not in their best shape, little by little we will acquire our cruising speed.
This is the case of Dolberg, who has not arrived at an optimal moment due to a shoulder problem.
He is as he is, but we need his performance, ”clarified the Sevilla coach.
In the Andalusian team, in addition to the homegrown footballers Carmona and Kike Salas, the game played by Isco, who is becoming the leader of this Sevilla, stood out.
“He is a footballer who is going to mark an era in our club, but we need the rest to raise their performance, in personality and confidence.
The mentality with which Isco approaches matches is going to make us improve”, stated the coach, who once again reiterated his message: “There are players who are not at their best and who have not arrived well.
They have to gain confidence."
“The coach told me if he was ready to play and of course I said yes.
We've had our chances, but we couldn't score.
The goalless tie tastes little, "said, for his part, Dmitrovic, the goalkeeper who replaced the starter Bono.
