The Spaniards have been paired against CSKA Moscow in the last 16, with a tricky trip to the Russian capital awaiting them in the first leg of that tie on Wednesday.

Navas, though, believes Sevilla can take a positive result from their trip to Eastern Europe and finish the job off at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

He also believes that, with some big-name casualties set to fall at this stage, Manolo Jimenez's side should be setting their sights on a trip to Madrid for the final on 22nd May.

"I am ambitious and I think that Sevilla could reach the final of the Champions League," said Navas.

"In this round some big sides will go out so, if Sevilla can overcome CSKA Moscow, the route to the final will not be as hard.


"We had an excellent group stage and we are now ready to take on tough Russian opponents.

"Reaching the knockout phase is a massive achievement for us, and a huge test, but we have a squad that is capable of going much further."

Sevilla's progress in Europe has complemented their domestic successes, with the club already preparing for a Spanish cup final and another tilt at a top-four finish in the Primera Liga.

"At the moment we are in the final of the Copa del Rey, fighting at the top of La Liga and still alive in the Champions League," added Navas.

"This is great news for the squad and proves that we are at a level which allows us to fight for many titles."
