Only a positive result will be acceptable for Julen Lopetegui’s Seville, having drawn away to Villarreal, which itself followed a loss to Espanyol. A win would go some way to restoring the team’s confidence.
Also, suffering three losses in six meetings is a terrible run of form for any club, Julen Lopetegui’s Seville will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. Their position is fifteenth in the League and they have five points, that is, 1W, 3L and 2D having won one game, drawn two games, and lost three fixtures.
