Sevilla skipper Ivan Rakitic calls for focus following the team's recent run of strong form.

Sevilla skipper Ivan Rakitic has called on his side to continue their strong run of current form.

After a slow start to the season, the Spanish outfit have now won their last three league matches, including back-to-back wins on the road.

Despite the turnaround, Rakitic has insisted that the club 'cannot relax' as they attempt to move up the league table ahead of the winter break in Spain.

"Now we are playing to improve further and to take another step forward, as every team does, including the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid," Rakitic told reporters at a press conference.

"After a while not winning away, we have now won twice in the last two attempts. But, nobody can relax."

Rakitic has netted nine times in 20 games for Sevilla this season.
